Photoshop: Automatic layer mask creation

Layer masks are a must. They show up with each adjustment layer, but why not with each layer other than the background. In other words, I want to copy a layer (^J) and have the layer mask without the needed additional step of making one! I bet the code writers are even smart enough to check the layer to see if it already has one or not, and then add one if not.

Great suggestion. It would be very useful to have an option in New Layer dialog box to create a layer mask attached to a new layer.

Further, it would be also cutting on production time if there was an option to create a layer mask from selection if at the time new Layer is created such selection exists.

Love it!
