How do I expand a layer of a picture

Recommended Posts

What is the file format? Does the image actually have more than one layer? Load it into PDN and look at the Layer menu. (If the Layer menu isn't displayed, press the F7 key to display it.) If there are multiple layers, they will be shown by the Layer menu. If it shows only one layer, there is but one.

Hi @CraigS81 and Welcome :D.  It's a bit tough to tell if you mean you have downloaded a PDN file with layers - as @MJW mentions above.  If it's a plain template from the web, then it wouldn't open with more layers.


Please see here for doing a simple color to a template.  You would upload the template, which will show in layer 2.  Then you can select the inside of the car with the magic wand

then make a new layer and add the color.


If you want to expand what you have downloaded you will have to select the layer and, using the Rectangle Select Tool :MoveTool: and pull on the nubs at the corners.




Hope this makes sense :D.

The image might have layers if it was a PS file...
