7.22.  Apply Layer Mask

The Apply Layer Mask command merges the layer mask with the current layer. The transparency information in the layer mask is transferred to the alpha channel, that is created if it doesn't exist, and the layer mask is removed. If the active layer does not have a layer mask, the menu entry is insensitive and grayed out. See the Layer Masks section for more information.

7.22.1.  Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through LayerMaskApply Layer Mask,

  • or from the pop-up menu you get by right-clicking on the active layer in the Layers Dialog.
