Viewing Layer Masks in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

To view a Layer mask, Option -click (Mac) / Alt -click (Win)  on the mask thumbnail in the Layers panel.   Tapping the  “\”(backslash) toggles the display of a layer mask on and off (as a red rubylith overlay).  Looking at the Channels panel, you can see that this shortcut toggles the channels visibility.
