Hold the Command/Ctrl key down and click the layer thumbnail for the "B". This will load a selection. Highlight the green layer Hold the Option/Alt key down and click the New Mask icon () at the bottom of the Layers Panel. This will provide a non-destructive way to remove one layer's contents from another. Working non-destructively has great benefits and ...

Select layer 1 in the Layers Panel, make sure it is highlighted. Click on the selection tool, I would suggest the Magic Wand tool if you're using Photoshop. Select/highlight the areas you wish to knock out of the layer 0. Then, with that area still highlighted, click on layer 0 in the layers panel. Press delete on your keyboard. And hide Layer 1 so ...

I'm sure there is more than 1 solution for this, but here is how I solve this : I kind of zoom in for a better selection, I use " Magic Wand Tool " to select on my text while on my text layer. Then, select my background layer and hit delete button. Here is my result Note : I change the background-color to black for you guys easier to see.

In offset printing, the only time colors are going to appear "multiply" as on the example is when there's an overprint on some spot colors. One way to work with spot color easily is to use the channels in Photoshop and bring each part of the artwork on the specific channel. That's not as easy as working with layers when creating an artwork and playing ...

Here is your problem, before you export you need to create each item on it's own layer - that way you tell Illustrator to create multiple layers, then PSD will pick those up. Hope this helps. P.S:Everything else to do is correct.

Select the "Move (V)" tool. Press and hold Ctrl key. Move the cursor over the image and you will see the magenta lines with distances between the layers. If you have any layer with full image size you will get the coords you need:

"Layers" is the core idea that will allow you to put various parts of your content in any arbitrary order. "Shape" in Photoshop generally refers to what is created by using the Pen tool. But I think you are using the term "shape" to refer to any element that shows what we call "shape" in daily language. You can use the Pen tool or the marquee tool then fill ...

Over the years I have developed a technique to simulate printing with glazing colors (screen printing, offset printing etc.) while working completely non-destructive, remaining full editability through the whole process and being able to easily export greyscale/bitmap masters for each color. Before we start we need to clarify what we want to do: We ...

Holding cmd or ctrl when clicking a new layer, creates new layer below, rather than above

You may use edit → paste as → new layer; that will immediately add the pasted content as a new layer. You can of course change the shortcut binding of Ctrl + V to call paste as new layer instead of ordinary paste. You can either go through the “traditional” menu shortcut editor, or enable the preferred method of dynamic keyboard shortcuts (edit → ...

As annoying as it may be, I'm unaware of a method of disabling it. Alternatively, You can anchor the floating layer to the current layer by pasting the image on to your canvas, clicking on (for example) the background of the canvas, and pressing CTRL+H. This will automatically place the floating layer on to another layer. Alternatively you can right click ...

It is possible without duplicating the layer. You can do the following. On the layer you want to fill, select the area you want to fill. You can use the fuzzy select tool() for this. Create a new transparent layer and use the bucket fill tool() to fill the selected area by clicking within that area. The result is a new layer with just the color ...

Ok, I messed around with various XML parsing modules and ended up with the following code. use XML::LibXML; use XML::LibXML::XPathContext; my $xml = XML::LibXML->load_xml(location => $file); my $xpath = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new($xml); $xpath->registerNs("defNs", 'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'); foreach my $layer ...

As listed in the comments, the issue is the DPI. When using the A4 template the default DPI is 300. Your original images were created at a different DPI. A typical DPI is 72 (which is also the GIMP default), whereas for print it is generally 300 (which is what will be selected if you use the A4 template in GIMP). As @Paolo Gibellini mentioned in the ...

Unfortunately GIMP does not support adding a layer mask to a layer group. Layer Masks can only apply to a single layer. The closest work around is to create the layer mask you want on a single layer, then copy it to the other layers. Add the layer mask to the layer (Right click -> Add Layer Mask) Configure the layer mask as desired, such as adding a ...

I don't specifically know GIMP, but i'm pretty sure the method would be the same, so in Photoshop, I would either Group the layers under a folder, then apply a mask to the folder (this is the better method as it keeps everything editable and separate) or Create an empty mask on each of the layers, then create the actual mask in one of them, then copy that ...

If you use Photoshop CC, just click on the clip button at the bottom of the adjustment popup. This will clip the adjustment layer to the layer below it, which means your adjustment will only affect that layer. You can have your adjustment affect more than one layer by grouping the layers, then clip the adjustment layer to the group. Likewise, the adjustment ...

I couldn't see the attached example but a little image-Googling made me guess it's the 2013 Denver County Fair poster. If it is, that effect can be done in Inkscape. Here's one way to do it: Make 2 different gradient filled "rays" per sunburst. The angle of the pennant shapes depends on how many rays of each you want in a sunburst (9 degrees in this case, ...
