Let me give you a shortcut for deleting masks. So let's begin by creating just a simple selection and I'm going to convert this selection into a layer mask for a black and white adjustment layer. It's a little secret there. If you start with a selection, your selection becomes the mask for the adjustment layer. So I'm going to click on the Black & White adjustment layer and that gives me a mask where part of the image is color and part of the image is grayscale. So if I want the opposite of that I can just invert it, Command+I, Ctrl+I. And now if I decide that I don't want this mask, I just want the whole image to be black and white, if I click on the trash can, Photoshop says, hey, are you sure you want to delete that layer mask? Delete or Cancel. Okay, I know that I want this deleted, so just do it Photoshop, please. Hold down the Option key or the Alt key on Windows and then click on the trash can and it just goes ahead and deletes that without throwing up that warning dialog.
