    Photoshop CS3 Layer Mask Density Option

    Hello everyone,

    I need some help finding this option, if it even exists. Does PS CS3 have a Layer Mask Density option? I have a Layer Mask that is solid black, but wanted to change the density level. If CS3 does not have the option, is there an alternative?

    Yes!....HOORAY!

    Make sure the MASK is selected for the layer.
    Use IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > LEVELS... and change the "Output Levels" with the black slider.....this will raise or lower the opacity of the mask. (By turning it more grey)...

    It adjusts the whole mask but still, better than nothing.
