The task I'm trying to achieve with Pixelmator is opening up a PSD and quickly (because I generally have to do it a lot) crop a piece of the image but also removing layers that I don't want in the finished picture.

This is for making little pictures out of PSD created by graphic designers to be later used in web application (for example, if there's a round button, I want the button, the icon inside but not the background, it has to be transparent, so I want to remove or hide those layers).

I'm evaluating Pixelmator as an alternative to Photoshop to process PSDs into HTML and CSS.

    So is the question really "how do I turn layers on and off in Pixelmator"?

    @e100: How to figure out which layers to turn on and off is also part of the question. Or maybe there's a way to just copy the contents of one layer without having to turn them on and off at all. Mar 5, 2012 at 15:46
