Though I don't exactly know your situation and don't even have Gimp in front of me right now but don't you think you could use the Quick Mask
for checking the results of a mask editing operation?

Despite the name, Quick Mask doesn't have anything to do with layer
masks. Quick mask is a just quick way to convert the selection to a
channel and back.

I suggested Quick Mask to Victor because he mentioned he wanted to
"see" the layer mask and image at the same time because, IIRC,  I
*did* use Quick Mask (at least two years ago!) to create a very
accurate masking effect because I wanted accuracy and could see the
image while masking at the same time. I have started using Gimp after
a long time and I recall now that Quick Mask has nothing to do with
the Layer Mask. It just didn't occur to me when I replied to Victor.

Thanks & best regards,


I have been watching a videotutorial about PhotoShop and that's when this question has occurred to me. It could be usefull sometimes if we could watch the layer mask in a window and the global effect in the whole image/composition, in another window... It seems that it is not possible, for now. That's ok. I'll keep loving GIMP just as before ;)
