I wish there was a layer mask property so one could easily specify a layer to mask another one without the need to worry about their order.

Something along this lines, where one could specify the layer to use as a mask, the mask mode (if uses the layer's alpha or the RGB as transparency), and if the mask is inverted or no:



Dealing with layer order for masking is somewhat confusing. With a layer mask property you could link an arbitrary number of layers to be masked by a single one, making management easier by eliminating the need to worry about the order or having to duplicate things.

It would be fantastic, it simplifies the matter, makes it familiar for people because of photoshop and it is quite easy.

Maybe we could make another post as a suggestion using the same images or something similar?
