how to change channels to visual layers?
on Sep 3, 2009 at 8:33:13 am

I have recieved a psd image which is built of 1 layer (no background)

when I turn the eye off I can still see some of the image - however, it's like a ghost as I shouldn't be able to see anything.
I need to work with this detail, but its impossible as there's no layer, the only thing is that I can see it on the channel box as several channels
Is there a way to change the channels into layers?
I'm in desperate help!
Thanks,
Michal

So your file has a channel with information you want to use on your layer? Go to the channel tab and duplicate this channel (by context clicking and selecting the DUPLICATE CHANNEL option.
Next you go to the menu bar: SELECT-LOAD SELECTION and select the duplicated channel. It will appear as a selection on your layer.

There's a command called split channels into files or something like that, it grabs each channel of your current image and saves it. Into a separate grayscale file, that should do it. The command should be in the channels palette
