Open image as layer mask?
Dear Readers,

I had an idea to create a set of Passe-Parouts. However, I ran into a problem. These would be layer masks. I have not found a "good" way to do this easily.

Does anyone know a way? Or, will this maybe be a feature sometime?

Thx for reading

There is another way... create a transparent layer and fill the selection. Save the layer as PNG. To reload a selection, "File/Load as Layer", and "Layer/Transparency/Alpha to selection" then discard layer.
