Get your selection > Save to channel > Set channel as selection

How do you use things like pen, paintbrush, fill, exc. at this point?

When I go to use them they are in my edit history but I don't see it making changes to the picture.


To use paint tools in the selection mask we may toggle to quickmask view (Select > Toggle Quickmask Shift + Q):

Now when using paint tools they are shown in the red quickmask layer:

On toggling back to normal view we can see the usual selection dotted lines:

  • Make selection > Save Selection to channel > Select none > channel to selection > select > toggle on quick-mask > draw black line ( area goes red in the selection ) > toggle off quick-mask (everything disappears) ---- I want to spray paint only within the selection I saved but... It's proving rather difficult – Nova Jun 7 '14 at 17:45
  • Sorry, but I can't reproduce this here... all works as expected but after painting you may have to create a new selection mask in additon to the original. – Takkat Jun 7 '14 at 20:36
