    My layer mask is using whole layer as a mask instead of object

    nicolanicola Level 1

      I've letters that I have converted to outlines and are grouped.  I want a photo to be masked by these letters.  I created a layer mask with the letters layer, but on collapsing the group, all the individual letters are masks but the group layer image mask icon is all blanked out making it mask the whole layer.

       

      If I ungroup the letters and then make a layer mask, only one letter is a mask, the rest are ignored.

       

      What am I doing wrong here?
