TIP: See color when you're working on a channel

Let's say that you have changed the mode of your color photo to Lab Color. Now let's say that you have clicked on the Lightness channel in the Chanels palette, making your image display in gray. You want to edit only this channel but see the effects in color (let's say). Just press the tilde key (~) just above your Tab key. This will show your image in color while you edit only the selected channel.
(You could also achieve the same result by clicking on the eye icon beside the Lab Channel, but I'm all about shortcuts)
