    new channels created from a selection are inverted


      Hi all!

      I've got some goofy setup thing that has apparently gone awry and I can't figure out what to uncheck to get it fixed.


      In the latest version of photoshop, when I make a selection then click new channel in the channels palette, the resultant created channel is the inverse of what it is supposed to be.  For instance, if I make a simple circle marque selection, click the new channel icon, and inspect the new channel I get a channel with white OUTSIDE the selected area and black WITHIN the selected area.  This is backwards. 


      I'm also having similar odd behavior from multiplying selections.


      Anyone know what's going on, what setting I need to change back to default?


      Any help appreciated,
