Mastering channel operations: Photoshop: Channels and Masks

Located in the Image menu, the Calculations command permits you to blend one channel with another subject to any of 22 blend modes, an act sometimes know as a channel operation. Calculations is well suited to smooth surfaces such as fabric and wispy details such as hair, fur, and feathers. With experience, you can build a better alpha channel, complete a given mask in a shorter period of time, and approach each and every masking job with a higher degree of confidence that you can ultimately achieve success.
