Photoshop + Layer Mask HELP!!

I have two solid (different) colored layers; on top I have a greyscale image I want to use as a Layer Mask to let the bottom color show thru the top.

When I select the image; and click "Quick Mask" I get the EXACT effect I want - however I can't seem to save the file and have it 'stay'; it keeps reverting back to the greyscale image on top of the top color layer and the bottom layer is gone.

PLEASE tell me someone is online and can give me what I assume are fairly simple directions I'm just too slow to figure out.

  • Did you flatten the image?

  • I've tried it every which way from Sunday - flatten before saving - merge layers before saving - leaving it in the layers and saving as a .psp file and still the same result

  • Did you try to export the file? It's not quite saving it as a .psp file but export as a jpeg.
