TurnipPally Posted April 18, 2010 Share Posted April 18, 2010 Firstly, great forums. They've helped me a lot. I am trying to make an image with overlapping circles. What I'd like to do is where the two circles overlap have that little strip be a lighter color. What I get when I do it is a darker color. This is an example of what I want it to look like: (Not my creation) This is an example of what I get: I've tried all sorts of variations of layers, setting the opacity of a layer differently, Adjustment->transparency settings. I've been using the ellipse tool, sometimes copy/pasting, sometimes drawing new. I've shift, alt, ctrl left ,and right clicked in all sorts of combos. To get the above image, I used the ellipse tool right over the background, set on invert, left click only. Then I adjust the transparency to -10 and I think I'm ignoring transparent pixels (although I have clicked and unclicked it in my various trials). I drew each circle individually. I've searched the forums through the tutorials, various keywords, and google. I am either missing it or it can't be done. So, what am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?
