Do the layers have the ability to "mask" lower layers?

I get what you're saying. You can save everything as layers in the .pdn file.

When you need to have an image to use outside of Paint.NET, just flatten the image,

save as .png, then undo the flatten before saving as .pdn again.

In addition to the tip, make sure you save the mask file somewhere quick to access, for example, the desktop, and then on the particular layer you want to mask, run the Alpha Mask, link to the mask file you saved, and then it should work like a charm.

If you need more help, I suggest going to the Image Hospital in the Pictorium.

On a new layer, using default black primary and white secondary colors, make a

radial gradient up from corner. Duplicate layer and apply Invert Colors to new layer.

Put one stone type above the first gradient and second stone type above inverted gradient.

Set both stone layers to Multiply blend mode, leave both gradients set to Normal blend.

Merge the top stone layer with the gradient beneath it. Move to the other stone layer,

and merge it with the gradient below it. You now have two stone layers with opposing

black gradients applied. Move to the top layer and set its Blend mode to Additive.

Leave the bottom layer set to Normal mode.

Now merge the two layers.

That's it.
