Basicly like channels, but more intuitive. By choise, makes every selection appear as editable layer automaticly. Possibly to make "Render layer", where linked selections are rendered as one selection. Including new selection tool, "HSL selection": based on Hue-Saturation adjustment tool. Adjusted area appears as selected area, like David Jensen suggested about year ago.

Selections cannot appear as layers, because layers represent visible content.

Selections can already be saved and loaded in channels.

But it sounds like you also want a calculated selection/mask -- which is the subject of some other feature request topics in this forum.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. Idea was to make selections appear as visible easily.
And be more editable, because this would for example allow to chance Color range selection later. "Smart selection".

And to make channels more approachable for new users.
They are plain simple for you, but sometimes I teach novise users.
