7.26. Apply Layer Masks

The Apply Layer Masks command merges the selected layer masks with the selected layers. The transparency information in the layer masks is transferred to the alpha channels of their respective layers. If a layer doesn't have an alpha channel, it is created. When that is done, the layer masks are removed.

If the selected layers do not have layer masks, this menu entry is disabled.

See the Layer Masks section for more information.
