10.36.  Add Layer Mask to Selection

Revision History
Revision $Revision$ 2006-08-16 scb

The Add to Selection command converts the layer mask of the active layer into a selection, which is added to the selection that is already active in the image. White areas of the layer mask are selected, black areas are not selected, and gray areas are converted into feathered selections. The layer mask itself is not modified by this command.
