    How can I change the opacity of a layer mask?

    jl2000 Level 1

      Hi -


      I've used a layer mask to hide portions of an image.

       

      Now I have to allow that hidden portion to show at, say, 50% opacity (I'll have to experiment to find the optimal percentage.).

       

      I'd like to avoid trashing the layer mask and starting over on a new one.  I already figured I could duplicate the masked layer, remove the mask on the copy and set it's opacity at 50% but now I have 2 layers.  I suspect there is a way to do this without a making duplicate layer.

       

      Is there a way to adjust the opacity of a layer mask?

       

      TIA your input
