I think this is a relatively simple question, but I can’t find an answer to it anywhere.
I want to apply the same layer mask to multiple images in photoshop using an action. The layer mask is saved as a .psd file.
I can automate creating a layer mask in the images I wish to mask, but I have no idea how to load the existing mask and then paste it into the new mask that was just created. If I try to record what I would normally do, i.e., choose the mask in the channel selector and then paste into it, The saved mask doesn’t end up in the newly created layer mask but as an entirely new layer.
Can someone explain the action steps I would use to make this work? I’d be soooo appreciative. Otherwise I’m going to be doing this by hand 800 times.
