Ok, now in plain English; what is it really what you're trying to do since a normal RGB image already has a 3 channels.

Adding a texture channel in the lighting effect or maybe you're trying to replace one of the channels with something else? What?

goto to channels, add new channel, paste your black and white into the 4th channel...save

Yeah, I think he can figure that out by himself, but what does he mean by

" i have the matching alpha ( black and white ) but i need help on how to combine the both, so the color map has alpha."

I would like to do what this dude is trying to do... :rolleyes:

that seems quite simple, going from a 3 channel image type format to a 4 channel one (such as PNGs) using alpha channel...
