An <b>Alpha channel</b> is an additional image channel just like the red, green or blue channel. It can contain any information in form of a grayscale image but commonly it is used to store a selection or a mask.
</p>
<ul><li> Black alpha channel pixels usually stand for masked, invisible or unselected pixels in the main image.
</li><li> White alpha channel pixels stand for unmasked, visible or selected pixels.
</li><li> Gray alpha channel pixels stand for more or less translucent pixels according to the brightness of gray.
</li></ul>
<p>Both <a href="Enblend.html" title="Enblend">enblend</a> and smartblend<a class="external" href="http://wiki.panotools.org/Smartblend">[*]</a> use the alpha channel to determine seam position when blending,
see the how to use enblend for patching zenith and nadir images<a class="external" href="http://wiki.panotools.org/How_to_use_enblend_for_patching_zenith_and_nadir_images">[*]</a> tutorial for details.
