I'd like to bake hue and saturation information directly into an image. This is my current setup that gives desired color values:
If I merge group into a single layer I lose all the information provided in
What should I do to maintain the color information in the highlight when I merge group?
Anytime merge group, layers or flatten operation is done without the black background enabled (Layer 8), the newly merged/flattened image loses hue color information. If the black bakcground is enabled, color is preserved.
My goal is to come up with transparent image of phone case and highlight, so I can overlay it on top.
