I have tried searching to no avail. Of course, the opposite is true, too. It would be nice to have a shortcut key that expands all of the effects.

Paint.NET :: Un-erasing Part Of A Layer?

Jul 12, 2012

In Photoshop you can erase part of an image with the color white with the paint brush and bring it back with the black brush. I used the erase tool to remove part of an image but then wanted to bring the edges back, but with precision detail, however i don't see a way to un-erase the edges like you can in photoshop. Example I have one shot of a sky and one shot of the mountains. I layer the two images and I erase the sky in the mountain image so the sky image in the layer below comes through. However, the divide between the mountain photo and the sky photo has jagged edges and I want to paint part of the image back in with precision along the rough mountain edges.

Photoshop :: Erasing Black And White Layer

Nov 22, 2008

I am trying to make a black and white image but leave certain aspects of it in colour. I did this yesterday by applying a black and white layer and then using the eraser to get colour back. However, this no longer works for some reason. I have also tried to use the history brush tool but that doesn't work either. I'm kinda a newbie so I think I did something last time that I'm not doing this time.

Photoshop :: Having An Issue W/erasing A B&w Layer To Reveal Color

Nov 12, 2005

Using CS2 and images that were shot in RAW and have been converted to jpgs or psds.

When I create a duplicate b&w layer and try to erase over a color that is not bright (in the more neutral family, like blue eyes or faded blue colors), the bottom color layer is not showing true to its color and is instead showing as a yucky orange peach. This does not happen with brighter colors of any type - erasing to reveal them will reveal the true color.

This does not happen with my older documents that came out of my camera as jpgs. Also, no amount of changing modes, color spaces or anything like that seems to help.

After Effects :: CC Freezes When Using Layers Panel?

Jan 29, 2014

I'm having an issue with the Layers panel, which is docked to my Comp panel, freezing my system whenever I try to click into any other panel. I can open a project, click on a layer to do some painting and then if I try to go back to the Comp freezes. My only solution is to open the Task Manager and shut down AE. If I save everything before I try to get out of the Layers panel then I am okay but that getting old fast.
I'm working on an hp Z420 Workstation. This system is entirely new as of December 2013 and there haven't been any major  issues but this has popped up and it's getting in the way of production.

Photoshop :: How To Keep Layer Effects On One Layer From Affecting Another Layer

Jun 7, 2012

I have found that when I use the Layer Styles on one layer and then make a new layer or select a shape that creates a new layer that when I go to add Styles to the new layer/new shape the previous layer is affected by how I set the Bevel & Emboss, Direction, Altitude, Drop Shadow etc etc.
For instance, let's say I have a ...
BG > New Layer > draw an ellipse and then add a Bevel with an  > Angle of 89 and an Altitude of 30 and then I add a New Layer > open the Styles and go to change the Angle to say +89 or whatever and the Altitude to say 45 ... the first Layer/Shape Effects change.
How I can keep one Layer from being affected by an other Layers Effects'?
I have found that if I Rasterize a Layer Effect that I can add a "double" effect on the same layer but I haven't tried the to do this with separate layers. However, for most of the work I am doing I cannot use the Raster because everything needs to be true vectors.
I have a Dell Laptop/Windows 7 Home Premium that's a 64 bit

Illustrator :: Lost Ability To View Effects In Action Panel?

Aug 25, 2012

Adobe illustrator CS5 on Mac OS X 10.7.4.
I used to be able to do something like effect->3d-> revolve, then go to the actions panel and bring up the 3D revolve, click on it and edit it again. Now, when I open the actions panel the simple 3d revolve is replace with a long long list of actions of course I can't bring up the 3d revolve effect and edit it.
I have removed all of the Illustrator prefs in my library file; but, it still does it.

Illustrator :: How To Change View Qualities When Effects Panel Open

Aug 14, 2013

Open Effects>Stylise>Rounded Corners, Turn on Preview (BTW how do I make PREVIEW ON! as the default for all effects panels/windows?)Now I want to Hide the Bounding Box and the Edges... but those shortcuts are now inoperable.
Photoshop allows me to hide bounding box, and the rulers, I think, when having an effect window open, why does Illustrator not permit this?Is there an alternative other than canceling out and starting again with the view qualities changed?
Seems needlessly long winded to cut off these shortcuts just because an effects settings window/panel is open.

After Effects :: Editable Rectangles Of Still Photos In Composition Panel Suddenly Stopped Showing Up

Feb 4, 2014

I am relatively new to After Effects CC and am using it to create a stop motion film with a large amount of photos.Usually, when importing the individual images into my composition panel, a sequence of editable rectangles appears in the composition panel allowing me to edit the frame length of the still photos.
After around 950 imported images, the little rectangles suddenly stopped showing up. But when looking at a preview of the project, it's as if the photos are in there, in the sequence they should be. I'm just unable to edit them like the previous ones with rectangles showing.
The area of issue is where you see the descending sequence of boxes in the comp panel. The red tracking bar is there to show that there are still photos continuing the sequence.

Photoshop :: CS5 - Icon Not Updating In Layer Panel

Nov 5, 2012

A Levels Adj. Layer sits above a regular Layer. When I make a change with Levels, the image updates normally, but the icon of the image in the Layers Panel does not change--it always reflects its original appearance.
I believe that the icon updated in CS5. Am I dreaming? Is there a new setting?

When Photoshop opens, the layer panel starts closed so no layers can be seen, like this.

Even if the workspace is reset (e.g. 'Essentials (Default)'), it still happens after Photoshop is re-opened.
This issue only started occurring recently. MC CS6 PS, Windows 7 64-bit.

Illustrator :: How To Select Multiple Objects In Layer Panel

Sep 25, 2012

I want to select a few paths in the layerpanel by NOT clicken on every one. So for example I have the following structure:
Layer 01
And I want to activate path03 to path09 for further modifications - I would have to select every single path by clicking on it in the Target column.
Is there a faster way like selecting path03 and than holding the Shift-key and selecting path09 ? <- (This obvious solution doesn't work)

Photoshop :: Layer Panel Filter - Falls Down When Using Search By Name Feature?

Jun 25, 2013

I think the layer panel filter is a fantastic addition to Photoshop but I think it really falls down when using the search by name feature.
I wanted to find a layer called "logo" which I did easily by selecting filter by name and searching for "logo". Voila the layer I couldn't find it isolated in the layers panel.
Now what I wanted to do was move that layer to the top of the stack so I selected that layer and turned off the filter. to find that the layer was not still selected in the layers panel. So now what do I do? I don't remember where it is and the search by name is useless in accomplish what I wanted.
I propose that when I layer is selected in the filtered layers panel that it stays selected and visible in the panel when the filter is turned off.

Illustrator :: Option-drag Selection Not Working In CS6 Layer Panel

Oct 20, 2012

Thought I'd force myself to use CS6 on a new project. I want to select multiple objects using "Option-drag", in the Layer Panel, but it doesn't work as it does in CS5.
Is there a different shortcut for selecting multiple contiguous objects using the Layer Panel, in CS6? Of course, I mean "Select" not "highlight".

Photoshop Elements :: Layer(s) Not Showing Up On Top Of Background - Only In Layers Panel?

Jan 16, 2014

Started working with PSE and when I tried to "stamp" a brush shape (whether default brushes or otherwise), the program does something it had never done before....SEE ATTACHED.  I will create a new layer to use my brush, but when I try to "stamp" it onto background, the program then creates a layer mask where I can see the brush shape AND a new layer, however ALL that shows up on the background is the icon you can see in my screen grab I am attaching here.  What is this icon? (The teeny one middle right of image, black square, outlined in red, with two red circles in the middle) I called Apple, we did a few things, they said it wasn't on there end.  I reset my tools, I uninstalled, reinstalled, to no avail. Again, I've reset all tools, the "eye" icon on layers panel shows it should be visible, I've tried layers-->merge visible, I've uninstalled and reinstalled.....

Illustrator :: Select Multiple Objects Faster On Layer Panel?

Nov 1, 2012

Is it possible to select a few objects by "sliding a mouse", on layer panel? For example, you can hold down the mouse, slide to lock multiple objects. It's fast and easy!

But if I need to select, say, only red, blue, yellow stars... I need to click the ◎ icons to select each sublayer. when I have so many objects to be selected on layer panel.

I use CS6 on Mac. Is there any secret shortcut key to select objects on layer panel by "sliding a mouse"?

Illustrator SDK :: Creating Art Present On Document But Not Visible On Layer Panel

Aug 9, 2012

Is it possible to create an art which is present on the document but not on the 'Layer' panel(F7)?
My requirement is to create an art which is visible on the document, but could not be seen on the Layer panel and user is not able to select it.
Just like it happens in case of reflection, when we are creating a copy of selected art object, the reflected copy doesn't present on the 'Layer' panel but it is visible on the document and user is not able to select the reflected one, while he can only select the original art.
