Well, I don't get it. Where did layer 4 come from, what IS layer 4, and where did the black text alpha layer go???????? Then, in the next step, the gloss layer and background are gone, and there are two text layers! (ok, you merge the two, but that leaves you with one layer) Sorry, but I'm new to Paint.net, you can't skip steps on me yet. I got up to and through doing the Alpha Layer step.
