How do I copy and paste a previous images mask into a new image of the same size?

Ok, if I understand correctly you are wanting to transfer a layer (with a mask) into a new image, whilst retaining the mask.

Load both images into Photoshop and set them up on screen so you can drag and drop between the two. Make sure you are working on the image you are copying from and goto the layers pallete. Click and drag the layer you want onto the new image and it should make an exact copy with the mask included. Check the new images layer pallete to make sure.

Hope that helps.
