I've been playing with this technique. I'm getting quiet excited about what I
can achieve with it.
I'm also wondering - is there a way to save the selections?
Usually I save my selections by saving them to a path. Of course, I recognise
that paths are solid, so they won't save the gradations in alpha values.
So, is there a way to save my selections, maintaining the different alpha
values in them?
