    This is a very good feature.

    You can save the AI masks in a style. Apply the style to a new photo and the mask updates.

    Not the same as regenerating the mask in place.

    Brian, I'm aware of that, and while that is handy for some situations, my idea would be handy for a lot of other situations I encounter.

    I think you get to the same place whether you walk abound the tree to the left or right. I tend to use styles for batches of edits then toss them (in addition to the more refined long term keeper styles). I’ve no qualms about adding a style quickly then deleting it.

    I do agree however that your feature would be useful for more one-and-done situations. Also, I’ve obviously limited experience with the AI so maybe I haven’t found myself in the same situations as you.

    If I understand the original post correctly the problem is that if one copies a layer to a new image and then regenerates the subject.background masks the edit tools used info is discarded.

    It would make more sense to save the edit info and allow another mask, AI or otherwise, to be applied.

    What I've done is press the Subject Mask button a second time. It creates a new layer (eg. Subject Mask 2). I then select Subject Mask 1 layer, then copy mask from Subject Mask Layer 2. Not as efficient as regenerating the subject mask on the selected layer but it achieves what is desired.

    Nope. . . 

     

    Image 1

    Edit with AI generated fg and bg masks

    Control + C

     

    Image 2

    Control +v

    Edits applied with previous AI mask that no longer matches

     

    Would be nice to have a button or contextual menu to do something like "regenerate AI Subject" on the layer you're on.  

     

    Currently, I have to create a new Subject Mask, and copy it onto the first subject layer with the edits

     

     

    And while I know creating a "style" would solve this, I don't want to have to make a million styles for every couple of "same" images

     

    I'd prefer to either "regenerate" subject mask of a particular layer and have it applied, or be able to do something like "control + Shift + C" to copy and then "control + Shift + V" to apply AND regenerate ai masks

    Walter, not sure if you've read the post fully, but yes, that's a "workaround", but would love to have it so you don't have to do that extra step, and unused layers

    Yes I read it. I agree and upvoted this suggestion. After I copy the mask back to my adjusted layer I delete the unnecessary layer.

    I upvoted.

    I think the problem currently is that C1 does not even know if a layer mask has been created by an AI button (at least we don't see it in the user interface), it is just an ordinary raster adjustment mask.  Of course C1 can be changed to remember.

    But with regards to your requirements, do you copy AI generated masks to another layer, or duplicate such a layer? Would it suffice to regenerate the originally created AI masks, or also the layers/masks originating from the mask copy (or layer duplicate) action?

    I'm having the same frustrations - the subject and background selections work great.  However if there was a way to regenerate the subject and background after a batch apply or during a batch apply that would be a tremendous feature.

    With the latest update, the've added just what I was hoping for.

    Copy/Paste from one image to another, and now the subject mask and/or background mask will re-generate with each paste!
