Hi all,

I’m about to throw my computer out the window. I’m having a problem with photoshop 6 right now. Basically I have 2 images (one is a background and one is a logo) I’m trying to transfer the logo into the background so I can work on the image together. Thing is as soon as I go to new layer in the background it "cuts" part of the background image. Not like it cuts the full section so leaves a transparent bit but it deletes the last colour I put into that image and leaves me with the previous colours.

Help!

No need to toss your computer. One explanation for what you’re seeing is that you painted or otherwise put your new colors onto the upper "logo" layer instead of the background one.

Click on the "eye"-cons in the layer palette to sort this out. If that’s indeed what happened, use the lasoo tool to cut and paste your work to a new layer, move that layer just above the background layer. Then use the "Merge Down" command in the layer palette to put the bits where they belong.

That didnt work. It made the image turn greyscale but thankfully a friend managed to sort it out for me!

Thanks though!

Make sure both layers are created with the same mode and color palette, if they were created as
seperate images to start with.
