I will answer No, the way you have typed the question a layer can not drive an alpha channel. However, i'm not sure. Why? Because what you are asking for is generally non answerable. In general I can only answer with certainty questions that are in the set of things I know how to do . It awfully hard for me to glean into the set of things I don't know how to ...

A Gradient Map might be suitable for your needs (although I don't fully understand your question). It maps the values from a grayscale image to a color gradient of your choice. Add the Gradient Map as an Adjustment Layer and the mapping is dynamically updated as you edit the image. No mask needed.

In versions before CS6, instead of doing a timeline/keyframe animation to animate transformations (the 'transform' option does not appear for smart objects), you can use an option called 'Tweening' to more quickly create layered/frame animations. You do not convert the layers to smart objects, and you have to have one layer for every frame of animation. The ...

I think I found the trick for bulk selecting target layers, just by chance... Click on the target box, then click on the layer, press ALT while selecting. It is shown here: https://youtu.be/_bpOs-NEiz0

Sorry.. but... You can't. It is not possible to have one path on two layers. If you need two layers, then there are no options to join two paths. You need to either keep the two paths as separate objects, or merge to a single layer. Those are really the only options possible.

The answer turned out to be blindingly simple: Just select the layer and then apply the filter. I did try that before asking, but for some unknown reason it didn't work at first. In the end, however, it did.

Not simple, needs several fixes. At first the light should come from the ceiling. I approximated it by clipping the gate to a new layer. I guess you already have it as a separate layer. The layer was rotated and it got layer style "Drop shadow" to make a shadow below the gate: The next step is to match the color: It has adjustment layer Hue&...

Well, that's two questions really, the first one, here's a sample to move the selected objects to a different layer named new_layer: var docSelected = app.activeDocument.selection; var targetLayer = app.activeDocument.layers["new_layer"]; for (s = 0; s < docSelected.length; s++) { myPath = docSelected[s]; myPath.move(targetLayer, ...

You can move the selected objects to a layer named "Target" using this script: var docSelected = app.activeDocument.selection; var targetLayer = app.activeDocument.layers["Target"]; for (s = 0; s < docSelected.length; s++) { myPath = docSelected[s]; myPath.move(targetLayer, ElementPlacement.PLACEATBEGINNING); } You ...

Layer > New Layer or Shift+Ctrl+N (make sure it's transparent obviously) Select > All or Ctrl+A selects the entire layer. Or if you want to load a shape drawn on a transparent layer as a selection, right click the layer in the layers panel and choose Alpha to Selection. Obviously you will then have to select the transparent layer again before ...

THE BEST WAY™️ I've found the best way to do it right now is: Select all objects in the layers panel. Click the little menu of the layers panel (top right, hamburger menu) Press "Collect to New Layer" Now select the entire layer by clicking the little circle of it. CTRL+G (or CMD+G on Mac) to group Now you can move it out of the layer or leave it....

Selection by color isn't sharp because at the edge the color often changes gradually. You must bite the bullet and draw a path around your shape. It makes as sharp selection as your photo allows. There's plenty of tutorials available like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqUineYZmpA BTW I have made numerous selections in photos to extract items and ...

If your image is in grayscale or color-indexed mode (see the title bar), anything you add to it (cut/paste, or Open as layers) is coerced into its current mode (for grayscale: desaturated, for color-indexed: converted to the closest colors in the colormap). You can restore full color support in your image by putting in it "RGB" mode: Image>...

Actually, yes, you can use Copy & Paste, you'll just want to rename the floating layer, and it creates a new layer with that content. I use GIMP 2.8.8 and it does that.

Select all the "blended objects" and group them. Select the entire group and in the transparency panel click the box "isolate blending"- this should keep the blending confined to the group so it does not affect other objects.

Ok, here is a solution that should solve your issue or at the very least send you on your way. As I described in the comments below the post, this sets up a layer that is dedicated for exporting, duplicates one item after the other to this layer, exports and removes the element again: // set the preferences for the PNG export var pngPrefs = app....

How about just adding as many new layers as the maximum number of items on a page? That way no page would have empty layers. // main function function distributeItemsToLayers() { // active document var doc = app.activeDocument; // source layer var sourceLayer = doc.layers.item("source layer name"); // array for new layers ...

Select both figures and then go to Path -> Difference (Ctrl -). This will consume your square, so if you want to keep the square for later, duplicate it first (Ctrl D).
