I am getting this strange Red Mask in PS 2023.
I run a Action that do Luminosity Masking.
When I click on the Layer, the photo becomes all Red Mask and I didn't do any Quick Mask.
In PS 2021 and PS 2022, I did not get Red Mask when I click on the Layers after doing this Action.
Need help. Thanks.
What happens when you uncheck the visibility of the Channel »Midtone 06«?
yes, you're previewing the channel in the Channels panel.
photoshop newbie here, how can i "fix" this preview issue ? i am also getting this red mask and i dont know how to get rid of it
Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?
Are you in Quick Mask Mode (see Channels Panel)?
my issue is exactly like chong67 describes it, i am not in quick mask mode. im sure Earth Oliver explained the solution, i just dont understand it
I asked for a screenshot.
apologies for trying to clarify, here is the file im working on
I asked for a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible.
And just to make sure what you did previous to the appearance of the overlay please also include the History Panel.
You can hide the Channel »Green copy« by clicking the channel visibility-icon (eye-shape) in the Channels Panel.
Can you provide the atn-file?
So far it doesn't seem like I can reproduce the issue; you could try inserting selecting the composite Channel before enabling the Layer Mask in the Action, that should hide alpha channel/s.
just to be sure you are using adboe photoshop 2023 right ? because this issue doesnt appear in 2022
I cannot seem to reproduce the issue on Photoshop 24.1.0.
Have you included the selection of the Composite Channel in the Action yet?
