Remove the layer mask from Camada 3 Make sure the white on black layer is turned on with nothing obscuring (layers above) and Ctrl click any of the three channels to load it as a selection Add a layer mask to Camdan 3. Job done I have used the yellow layer just to show what is masked

I do it like this:
1. Ctrl + click on the layer thumbnail to load it as a selection.
2. Ctrl + C to copy the pixels
3. Alt + click on the desired mask thumbnail to show the mask
4. Ctrl + V to paste the pixels into the mask
5. Click on any layer thumbnail to hide the mask
