I. Normally, a drawing program will send the data to a printer as you expected in this case. The printer will not care about the blue rectangle below the triangle. II. A printer does not have "access to the layers" because the drawing program sends only the result the user is expecting, regardless of if you have a ton of layers below. The program ...

Select the Move Tool. Select the layer you want to center. Press Ctrl / Cmd + A to select all. (This creates a selection the size of the canvas which you can then align the selected layer according to.) Use the Align vertical centers and Align horizontal centers buttons in the top tool bar or use Layer > Align Layers to Selection > Vertical Centers and ...

Your layer has no transparency or mask. That's why Ctrl+clicking the layer thumbnail isn't working. I don't have a copy of CC 2015 to go through the background removal tools that were available back then. It's outdated. If you already have Photoshop CC, it's free to update to the latest version. It has some additional tools that make selecting the subject ...

If you have a selection, it will scale only the selection. You have to use the Scaling tool (Shift + S + <click> on image), not the "Scale Layer" menu. If you want to use Scale Layer for some reason, convert your selection to a "floating selection" (which is more or less a "modal, temporary layer") first, by pressing <...

To permanently disable layer boundaries from the File > Preferences menu chose Image Windows > Apearance to untick Show layer boundary. This then works on all newly created layers. To toggle visibility of layer boundaries create a keyboard shortcut from Edit > Preferences > Interface. Select Configure Keyboard Shortcut and scroll down to the ...

Blending mode Screen has at least the right direction: Reduce the opacity to reduce the effect. Insert another identical shape to lighten more The effect is now better than what's got by inserting only transparent white because this doesn't reduce the colorfulness as much as transparent white. Unfortunately the same highlighter shape cannot be used if there'...

You can adjust Curves. Use it in RGB mode. The tool allows you to adjust R,G and B separately or together. I removed the selection check from G anB and lifted only red. You can turn black to any combination of R, G and B by changing the place of the checkmark.

The way the applications work is that they try, and succeed to most extent, to make a what you see is what you get environment. So anthing you put on top knocks out the thing below (I am ignoring transparency for purposes of this discussion just because its confusing but it knocks thing out too). So your yellow triangle neatly cut out the blue bakground. ...

It's also possible with BoltBait's Paste Alpha plugin. Copy the transparent PNG to the clipboard Create a completely red layer Go To Effect / Object / Paste Alpha From the second dropdown, choose "Alpha channel on clipboard".

Command/Ctrl+L is the default shortcut in Illustrator for a new layer. Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > Menu Commands > Other Panel And you can change it to match Photoshop's shortcut if you'd like (that's what I do). The other way (besides the panel button) to create a new layer is via the Layers Panel Menu. There's no "new layer" item in the ...

You can do this with layer masking. It's a commonly used technique in raster image editing software such as GIMP, Photoshop or Krita, etc. Basically you would set up two layers, one with your colour image on the bottom, and the black and white image on a layer on top. To add a layer mask to a layer in GIMP, click on the Layer Mask icon in the layers panel. ...

Select All Click the Merge button on the Pathfinder Panel If you want just white and blue objects, you're done at this point. But... if you want just blue objects continue... (I would want just blue.. then I can manually add a simple white rectangle behind the blue if necessary.) Use the Direct Selection Tool (White Arrrow) to click a white object Choose ...

Sorry to necro, but I believe duplicating (Ctrl+D) should make a copy and preserve the layers for each object--at least it does for me when I try it in Inkscape 1.0.2

One method, easier than the Measure tool which doesn't snap to paths or anchors, is to use the Line Tool \ instead. Enable Smart Guides, draw a line while holding down Shift to constrain it horizontally or vertically, and its width or height will show in the tool options along the top. Then Undo Ctrl+Z to remove it. Obviously this will only work for ...

Might be too late, but here's a Pinned Layers plugin in Adobe Marketplace for Ps v22

Object> Arrange> Send to Current Layer will only send selections to a new 1st level layer and not a sublayer. Click the Create New Layer button (not the Create New Sublayer button) at the bottom of the Layers Panel. Highlight the newly created Layer. You can then select what you want to move there and the Object> Arrange> Send to Current Layer ...

Select all (Select > All) Set the fill to none in the Color Panel (Window > Color) Set the stroke to a color in the Color Panel Set the stroke weight in the Stroke Panel (Window > Stroke) You can also do all this via the Appearance Panel (Window > Appearance). Merely click the colors or the stroke weight in that panel.. You can review some ...

I typically create highlights without using any blending modes. I maybe old-school but I do not like using blending modes within Illustrator. The only blending mode I'll use on occasion is Multiply because it essentially equates to overprinting. However, it's still a very rare thing. Some blending modes do not work with CMYK art and are therefore not useful ...

Looks like your image has been 'cropped' and then again merged with another white layer (as somewhat visible from your Layers panel). Or maybe a white background is applied to inverted selection of your initial selection. I haven't used 2015 version, but I feel this is the issue. Does your image have transparent pixels around it? If yes, it should work like ...

Very likely round-off errors(*) because if I can reproduce the problem in 8-bit mode, changing the image to high-precision (32-bit floating point) (Image > Precision) at the beginning of the process makes the problem disappear: Btw, as shown above, using the Histogram dialog is better than Levels. The screenshot shows that the count of pixels with a ...

To do this you will need to: create a camera turn rocket layers into 3D Once this is done, you will change the position of the rockets on the Z axis. Note that you only need to move one of the rockets in layer Z (back and forth):

There's no way to have the layer size change dynamically as far as I'm aware (except for dynamic text boxes). In GIMP the layer size is independent from the content on the layer. The two are unrelated. Also snapping to guides or using the Alignment tool works using the layer boundaries, not the content. Anyway, you can manipulate the layer size manually in ...

You can move the guides to the back.... Then guides will be covered up by page content. There is no way to mix the front/back placement and have some guides in front and others in back. It's one or the other, you'll have to choose which works best for you. (Although CS6 is older.. I still prefer it today... even though I have a CC subscription. There's no ...

You could create your template from a group of the card image, with the border on a layer above it, and then add the layer mask to the group. Then all you'd need to do is import/paste each image into a layer inside the group, but under the border layer. Then you could simply enable/disable each image layer and export as required. Example Note: if you want ...

How about using Generate Image Assets instead? This feature is amazing but often overlooked. Enable it from the menu File > Generate > Image Assets; Rename layers/groups/whatnot to file names and, optionally, add size variables; Generate will pickup those and export them instantly; An example. My setup: 2 artboards, some groups and layers: The ...

Merge must be one line of the action. Use the reveal arrow to show the steps, then disable the appropriate line…

One way: use an action to quickly convert layer pairs to single layers. And then use Export > Layers to Files. Setting up the layer-merging action This action deletes layers once used, so only run it on a duplicate of your PSD. Recording the action can be tricky, as selecting layers in the layers panel often creates layer-specific actions. To avoid ...

If the whole logo is expanded (Object > Expand) and if each shape is independent (I mean if the white shapes are already cropped and there's no white shapes behind orange shapes), you can just use Direct Selection tool and select them each and delete it. You can also use Shape Builder tool for this (again it works if whole logo is expanded): Just press ...
