Ok, we have a winner.....the red channel has the job of being our base to work from. Lets get started then.
Drag the red channel to the new document icon which is located at the bottom of the pallet third from the left. Then.....Ctrl-A or Select>All to select the entire canvas and hit Ctrl-C or Edit>Copy to copy the selection. Click on the Layers tab to reveal your layer window and make a new blank layer.
