    masking a masked image

    Level 7
      Hello!

      I've created a masking layer within Photoshop an an image by drawing a
      vector path and imported it into FW. The masking path comes out
      properly. Now I want to mask this masked image with a rectangle (or any
      other vector path), but all FW does is to mask the image with the
      rectangle and forgets the initial masking path. What should I do? I want
      to preserve the original masking path and don't want to make path
      operations to get the final masking shape.

      THX

          Group (Modify > Group) the original mask group first.
