I have just spend ages to find out how to move a mask into the main screen in order to paste into the mask. In the end I found it.
Adobe Photoshop Help wrote:To paste a copied selection into a layer mask, Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the layer mask thumbnail in the Layers panel to select and display the mask channel. Choose Edit > Paste, then Select > Deselect. The selection is converted to grayscale and added to the mask. Click the layer thumbnail in the Layers panel to deselect the mask channel.
So easy once you know how but although I had read how once I had forgotten.
Also found 300+ Keyboard Shortcuts but the Alt-click option was not in the list.
Stamp multiple layers or linked layers
When you stamp multiple selected layers or linked layers, Photoshop creates a new layer containing the merged content.
Select multiple layers.
Press Ctrl+Alt+E (Windows) or Command+Option+E (Mac OS).
It seems so simple but had I not bought Digital Photo I would have never known it was possible. Maybe others could add to this post and give tips on how they work with masks? I have not put it on Facebook as it will just scroll out of view.
