A lot of people are confused about Alpha Channels in Photoshop. In fact, Alpha Channels are very useful, very powerful, and not that difficult to understand. In this screencast I introduce you to the basic concepts around Alpha Channels, explain what they do and how you can use them to enhance your Photoshop experience.
I must apologize for some technical difficulties I had recording this video. For some reason I was getting a lot of glitches in the images, and wasn’t able to sort it out. Hopefully the information is still understandable. I’ll try and get these issues sorted out before the next installment of this Alpha Channel series.
