I have Adobe Photoshop 2020 and I am trying to apply an action to a hair texture. The problem is, I only want the action applied to one of the layers and not all of them. When I complete the action, the layers are merged and the action is placed over them all. Is there a way to apply an action to only one layer?
I have already tried making the layers clipping masks, locking the layers I don't want to change, and removing the background. Removing the background would work, however, I do not have the refine hair tool with 2020.
