avim1968 Posted June 23, 2012 Share Posted June 23, 2012 (edited) Hi All here is a problem i have, (also the workarounds.) and i want to know is there is a better way to do it? Working with many layers, I sometime want to isolate a layer or a number of layers to see what they have on them or how their effect/image look like APART/OUTSIDE of the current image. mainly when a layer has very small details or/and many light effects which are too bright/small that can't be seen in the small layer preview window inside the "layers box". my current solutions/workarounds are: 1. copy the layer/layers to a new image, (which is good for small number of layers.) with black/white background layer to see, what was on those layers from the original PDN. 2. place a black/white layer in the middle of the PDN itself and move it up/down to block the layers below, however this does not block the layers above so its not very useful for most things. solve this i would save the PDN and then unchecked all the layers above/below. again working with many layers it takes time. the simple way for solution 2 to work best , would be, an option added to paint.net layers box, like an "Uncheck all" button (with a question "are you sure", to stop us doing so without saving 1st) then we can select the layers we want to view/check. after that we just restore the saved PDN. do you have any other way to it or comments ? thank you Avi p.s. also when having only those layers selected and adding my other topic about making a new image from selected layers http://forums.getpai...visible-layers/ would allow even more options to do) "DDAP=Don't Drink And Post! :-)" Edited June 23, 2012 by avim1968 Quote "DDAP=Don't Drink And Post!" :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
