Do the layers have the ability to "mask" lower layers?

I believe the answer to your question is that you can get the end result you want,

but not in the way you want to do it.

Forget about using a middle layer. Simply do a Transparency Mode gradient on

your top layer and merge it onto your bottom layer. No need to make part of the

bottom layer transparent because the opaque portion of the top layer will cover it.

This is assuming that I have understood what you are meaning to do, if not, never mind. :)

Sarkut: This sounds like what i would like to do, how is a Transparency Mode gradient done? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried using a gradient :GradientTool: set to the transparency mode :AlphaChannel: on the upper layers ?

I dunno, it may be what you're wanting ...

All: Thanks for the help so far, what i want to do is store the "mask" as a layer (or maybe file?) so that i can Copy/Paste it and modify it.

The method welshblue shows is good for an on-the-fly method, so i was confused as to how the "mask" got stored in a layer so that i may save & repeat it and adjust/tweak it...
