Thanks for all the info!!  I will definitely be trying this on the next batch of images that I have to de-saturate.   It's not sinking in at the moment but it's one of those things that you actually have to do in order to understand what you are doing.    It looks like I may be able to do everything I need to do in AD.    Now, if only it would open up in 3-4 seconds like PI does!

Sheryl, the arm is starting to heal nicely.  I just taped the gap together with bandaids and it's now growing the opening together.   Amazing, isn't it?  How a body can heal itself like that.

It is not clipping, so what is it called?

Sheryl, I think the answer to your question has already been given, I made you a small explanatory GIF.

The mask (the oval with a serrated border) is a PNG file with a transparent background.

Don't shoot me for posting something I created in PS but posting this just to show what I mean by "masking". I created the brushed frame (rough edges), just a quickie so not as good as it should be, saved it as a transparent png file then placed a photo inside and clipped it to Layer.  I am trying to figure out how to do this in AD. Found this link to create a mask overlay but not quite the same thing.

OMG. Looks like you need a few stitches in the deep cut MaryLou. Hope you are ok...looks very nasty. Take care as the last thing you want is an infection getting in.

To be even clearer, let's add that we can select several files by using the "Ctrl/Cmd" key in the "Layers" tab and then press only once on the "Export Slices" button, contrary to what I show in my GIF.

Thanks again for allowing me to explore these features!

Teejay, I would like to make a small point about exporting several photos or drawings at once.

The method you give is suitable if you want to export all the photos contained in a file.

If you do not wish to export all the drawings, once in "Draw Persona" and in the "Layers" tab, select only the photos to export then click on the button "Create Slice".

Then go to the "Slices" tab, the photos to export are marked.
Uncheck "Background" as you reported and click on the "Export Slices" button (the button indicates the number of files created at export).

Oh that flowery Sweet Pea one is a nice result Linda and very effective. Yes, it's great fun making these.

I never got around to making many Masks in the past so not that familiar with them to explain clearly. I'll see if I can find one that would explain it better than I.

My last 2 cents worth here, instead of using black to white gradient, use the black to transparent gradient and the erase blend mode. 
This has been a great learning experience and fun to see how many ways there are to do this!
