I want to add a blur or rounded rectangle to only the white rectangle layers, which are behind the text.
Trying rounded rectangle with the layer selected, only modifies the main layer.
I have tried using a Layer Mask (white), putting the mask to selection, and applying the filter to the mask, then apply the mask... Is Layer Mask = White the wrong option?
Applying the Layer Mask does not work; it just shows the original layer.
When I apply the rounded rectangle to the mask, it rounds the mask, but on apply, it doesn't change the actual Layer.
Is there any way that I can crop to Layer Mask?
Any tips for a frustrated noob? I've tried following these tutorials, without success: How to apply a filter to a layer and its mask at the same time (in a single pass)?
