Flatten Visible


Recommended Posts

Is their an easier way to flatten just some layers? Kind of like in Photoshop, they have a "Flatten Visible" tool, that just flattens layers that are checked as visible. Right now I've been saving, unchecking the layers I don't want saved, Flatten, Ctrl+C, revert to saved version, and paste into a new layer.

I gather if you had layers like this:
Layer I - Visible

Layer II Invisible

Layer III Visible

Layers I and III wouldn't be flattened?

The opposite. Layers I and III would be flattened, leaving layer II and Layer I/III.

Move Layer 1 and 3 next to each other, merge down.

Now you have layer2 and layer1+3.

but when you have more than two layers you want flattened and they have different blending modes merge isn't quite the same as flatten.

Just stack the layers you want to combine, then begin merging down; starting with the bottom two layers...working up from there. Copy resulting layer and undo the initial flattening <- That way there is no need to save a copy first. Finally, delete duplicates and paste layer from clipboard.
