I have the hardest time wrapping my mind around Photoshop CS6 new vector concept. Shapes appear as layers instead as vector masks as in previous versions.
With that in mind, how do you ad a vector mask (NOT a layer mask), to a layer group?
What I am trying to achieve is to have the vector shapes on groups that have certain scanned jpg texture layers inside. This way I have the freedom do modify a shape, or to replace the jpg texture, etc.
Sorry for my late reply. For some reason the problem I had was actually copying or "releasing" a vector mask from a shape layer. I found this tip on this place which worked greatly (scroll down to Releasing vector mask from shape layer:
"For example, you have vector shape, and you have group of layers. You want to add that vector shape as mask to group. In CS5 you'll just drag mask to the folder, in CS6 there's no “mask” element on layer. Instead, to release mask from vector shape layer you'll need to click on vector shape layer with holding ⌘ (ctrl on Windows) and drag it to your group."
