I was wondering if it is possible to convert/copy a clipping mask to a layer mask.
The reason is, that I have a textured layer, and a highlight layer. By selecting the highlight layer and creating a clipping mask, I get the effect I want.
But... I want to save the highlight layer on its own (as a PNG), in it's clipping mask state, but without the background textured layer.
If I copy the highlight layer and paste it into a new document, it looses the clipping mask. Same if I hide the texture layer.
Is there a way to do what I'm trying to do?
