Select the mask layer: Go to Window -> (check) Properties In the Properties window change your density If that doesn't solve, when you select your mask, tell what is your overlay mode in the fields on of your layer list:

As far as I know, you can't. The method suggested by Joonas and elaborated by Rachuru is a good option for many cases. When that isn't suitable, here's another option you can try. Not the ideal solution you're asking for, but an option that can help in situations where you have up to 60 layers in Illustrator or maybe 40 in Photoshop - any more and it'd ...

If it is a layer that has been hidden, you can toggle it's visibility in the layers pallet by clicking on the eyeball. If it is one object in a layer that is hidden you can use the shortcut CMD+ALT+3 this will call Object -> Show All.

Difference just in selection method.. at first case you select the whole artboard, at the second you select just a object on a layer (some transparency can be dropped due threshold). The second way is good to get selection exactly like an object. It is handy in many cases. And not so when you want have just a full copy. Btw, you can consider Ctrl / ...

If you export in PNG format, all layers are rasterized. This format aren't vectorial and doesn't support layers. Only Adobe Fireworks (Dismised) can save .png with all layer, but are readable only by itself. Check if Paint.net can read .psd format (photoshop native) with all his layer.

Linking layers, via the 'chain link' icon at the bottom of the layers palette, means that when you move or transform one layer the other layer will also move or transform with it. With layer masks (including adjustment layers) by default they are linked, meaning the same - moving or transforming is applied to both the layer and the layer mask. Once you ...

In the Layers Panel Menu ... Release to Layers (Sequence) and Release to Layers (Build) The difference between the two is the stacking order of the created layers. Sequence creates layers from the bottom up, build does the opposite. (Or vice versa... but that's the basics.)

To change the font style of all text layers, you can filter all Type Layers with Layer Filrering option (CS6+). You find it on the top of Layers panel - [T] icon. Than just select all Layers that left in Layers panel and change font as you wish. Don't forget to turn of filtering when you're done - click on the red toggle button next to filters.

You should make an export of your .ai file as a .psd. After File > Export..., at the bottom of the dialog you must choose psd as your exporting format and when you click save you get a new dialog in which you can choose if you are exporting as a flat image or with the different layers. To do this you must check the Write Layers option. After that you ...

Well I have posted a script that could be easily repurposed for this function: #target illustrator // Cycle between layervisibility A - B - None - around // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 layers = app.activeDocument.layers layer_a = layers.getByName("A") // insert layer names here layer_b = layers.getByName("B") if (! layer_a.visible && ! ...

One way that might work for you is to temporarily disable/uninstall the old font from your system and then use the "Replace all missing fonts" feature under the "Type" menu. It's not the prettiest way to do it, that would probably require scripting, but it should work fine in your case.

If text is the only thing which needs to be changed and it's not too deeply integrated, open up the .psd files in Adobe Illustrator and make the change there using Type | Find Font...

Like marcusdoesstuff says, one option would be to save out your file in a TIFF. Another option would be to save it in a PSD format and use a plugin to open the PSD in Paint.NET. One is available here, although I can't speak to how well it works as I do not have Paint.NET to test it.

TIFF is a widely supported image format that can save layers and transparency (which Photoshop can open). There's not a ton of advantages of using PNGs over TIFF unless you're using them on a website. Whether it works with Paint.net or not, I'm not sure, but you could give it a go! You could also try saving as PSD (Photoshop's native format) which work with ...

If by "shapes" you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no. It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked - but it always takes additional ...

Shift+Option/Alt+[ (or ]) This will select layers while walking up or down (depending upon [ or ]) the layer stack in the Layers Panel. There is no way to skip a single layer with this method. The layer selection will always be contiguous. Let go of Shift to simply move up and down within the Layers Panel and highlight only one layer.

The following script will help to copy text directly from layer. https://gist.github.com/praveenvijayan/b4c367f4b903a3f9f250 note: Work only above PS cs6 Copy Script into Photoshop script folder and assign a shortcut and enjoy. Saves a lot of time.

Image > Canvas Size... Simply enter the size you want, set the way you want the canvas to expand, and click OK. Note: Canvas Size is not the same as Image Size. Canvas size changes your canvas without altering the size of anything else.

I think it is not possible what exactly you want—scroll with the mousewheel while grabbing something. You can use these methods for some convience, as @Joonas mentioned in the comments Using the Arrange command. If you’ve got one or more layers activated, you can choose Layer > Arrange to move them somewhere else in the layer stack. Depending on ...
