here are a few copy merged layers, which I dragged in from another image; now I need to remove the extra stuff;
clicking on the mask icon gives the prohibitory sign.
make a group of them (Ctrl-G) then add mask to group.
convert layers to smart object then add mask to smart object layer.
thanks a lot, I am not getting emails anymore, don't know why, so I just happened to be on the web site now!
