I drew a smiley face graphic and used translucent gradient layers on top of the first color to give the face a 3-dimensional look. But there are also "smile lines" under the eyes, and I want to the color in the folds of the lines to blend seamlessly in with the rest of the face.
But using the eyedropper tool only grabs the top layer, of course. Is there a way to set the eyedropper tool to grab the "combined" appearance of all the layers? There doesn't seem to be a way to do it, but I find that incredibly hard to believe.
Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to post the image here, as this is for work. But here's a link to an image that will give you some idea of what I'm talking about.
