Thanks for setting this list up at Freelists Chris. Good move. And yes
I got the welcome msg.

The Masking Effect dbox has an option 'Work image into mask'. What can
this do? The manual says

"If this switch is set, the brightness of the image itself will
determine the density of the mask when the tool is applied. For
example light areas may mean that the mask is deeper than dark areas.
If this is not the effect that you want then invert the mask, after
tooling, and the converse will apply. Of course, you may still vary
the overall depth of mask to fine tune this effect even further."

but can anyone illustrate an example use for this?
