Make great selections with channels in Photoshop

In this Photoshop tutorial by Nathaniel Dodson from TutVid, we’ll look at the Channels panel and examine how to duplicate a channel to extract just the information we want from the image.

We’ll use Levels and a cool brush tool trick to finalize our alpha channels and we’ll cover what an alpha channel is and how you can use them to create complex selections, save those selections and then convert those selections to masks on adjustment layers to localize effects and adjustments in your images.

It’s a powerful tool to know how to use and can really save yourself with some difficult selections.
