Hello,

 

Long ago, in Photoshop, I was able to highlight/select my RGB channels and then 'Shift' click an Alpha channel, so when I used the Magic Wand, it referenced the information on my Alpha Channel and my RGB/Background layer. 

 

Does this no longer work or exist? Is there a new key combination to select your RGB and an Alpha Channel so they are all activated?
