How to combine multiple saved selections (CS3)
Jan 14, 2009

I'm attempting to isolate a complex subject against a complex background. Using the pen-tool, I outline the detailed areas of the background I want to mask, then make the path a selection, refine it, and save the selection.

Once I have all the areas of background selected (there may be 8 individual pieces or so till I'm done), I'd like to combine them in to one master mask so I can defocus and alter the background and leave the subject in full brightness, etc.

How can I combine all those saved selections and make them active at once?

Tks!
