Paint on Photoshop Layer and Alpha Channel with the Brush at the same time?


Question

I want to create a Image of a brush stroke with a perfect alpha channel, but using the tools in the Selection menu doesn't result in a too perfect result.

Since it's also possible to paint in the alpha channel, is it possible to paint onto a layer and onto the alpha channel at the same time, so it creates a perfect selection?

or am I just doing something wrong when trying to create an alpha channel of a little more complex brush strokes?

thanks

Accepted Answer

If you have the brush stroke on its own layer, ctrl+click the layer and then create a new alpha channel from the selection.
