Author Topic: Convert Layer to Mask  (Read 1898 times)

Hi there !

It's possible to convert a painted layer into mask ?.

I create some decals, and I want to mask them to control just the painted information.

You guys rock !  8)

This is not possible at the moment.

The only way to do it, would be, export that layer into a map (just hide all other layers and export that layer only) if it has colors, convert it to a grayscale image with photoshop / gimp / krita/ etc, and then load that image as a mask, (import the map into painter, right clic on the layer you want to apply that mask and select the "Add Bitmap Mask" option).

Hi there.

I did that ! Thanks. But it feels, like, it should be possible within Painter.

Another idea to add it to the Painter ecosystem !
