Layer opacity affecting wrong layers problem

Recommended Posts

There are a couple of ways to do what you want:


1) make sure each layer does not have overlapping pixels.  This way, the layer will only affect the background layer.


2) after working on a layer, flatten your image down to a single layer before starting the next layer. (Not really recommended as you lose the ability to edit each individual layer later.)


There is no automatic setting to do what you're describing.

Ok, resurrecting this... perhaps I haven't quite stated my problem clearly enough. On some more thought what I exactly want to do if it is at all possible is for the pixels on one layer to cut through and overwrite layer #2, except the background. So that it will appear as the overwrited pixels have been removed by the first layer, but the background will stay the same. The only way I can do this now is by going to layer #2 and erasing the areas that overlap with layer #1 which is tedious and sloppy
