    No, not see through. Invisibility mode, this makes it transparent, I sorry I guess I don't understand completely what it is your are trying to do.

    I would use the Invisibility mode, and then save it as a PSD, or if I was done, I would save it as a jpeg file, or save as a gif file for the web under transparency, and remove the background first before saving for the web. I hope this helps.

    as a side note: to keep invisible parts on an image after saving, you can use gif and png. These formats are widely supported by browsers (unlike psd) and guarantee smaller file sizes.
