Can you cut/paste something on one layer only while see 2 of more layers

Recommended Posts

If you don't wish to see the checkerboard effect, add a new layer and fill it with a contrasting color. Move this new layer to the bottom of the layer stack.


Note: the checkerboard effect indicates transparent areas. It won't show up in your image, provided you save it in a format which supports transparency (like *.PNG)

Cutting or erasing only affects the active layer (the one which has the highlight in the Layers window). Make sure the correct layer has the focus by clicking on it. Then you will only be cutting that layer. All the others will remain untouched.
