Ok, the simple answer is 'yes'......... if you have anything in a Layer Mask, though, this would also 'carry across'......... For example, if you made a Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer to make a black and white image, you might not want everything to be black and white....... so you'd use a layer mask to prevent certain areas losing their colour. It's a bit like putting a plate of white-washed glass between the adjustment layer and the image layer - if you rub away some whitewash from a certain area you'd see through to the layer below. (With a Photoshop Layer Mask you would 'paint black' to do the equivalent of rubbing the whitewash away). So that Layer Mask is only going to be applicable to the image being edited..... but the Adjustment itself can be used on other images. (You could actually copy the Mask over to a new image as well, but you'd need to bring the mask back to full effectiveness by flooding it with white again).
(haha - I see my post was auto-edited to remove a word - it was only 'BUT' - with an extra 'T'!)
