Photoshop :: Not Enough RAM To Auto Blend Layers?

Nov 29, 2008

I'm running Win Vista 32bit with 3gig of RAM. When trying to use the Auto-Blend feature of CS4 I get an error message that says Could not Auto-Blend the layers because there is not enough memory (RAM)." The only way I'm able to get this feature to work is if I reduce my image size to less than 1/4 of my original file size. I started with an image that was 4221 pixels wide, and I had to reduce it down to 1000 pixels before the blending feature wold work.

Does anyone know how much RAM this feature needs to work on a full size image? Is there anyway I can set up Vista to allocate more of my RAM to CS4? When I go under preferences > performance, it tells me that I have 1641mb of RAM available. Is there a way I can set this so more of my RAM is allocated to CS4?

Photoshop :: CS5 Freezes When Using Auto-Blend Layers - Stack Images

Mar 24, 2013

I used to have CS5 on my computer, after which I used the CS6 trial, and I never had any problems when stacking images using Auto-Blend Layers -> Stack Images. However, I recently purchased a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and after uninstalling the old PS versions and installing Cloud, Photoshop freezes every time I try to stack images.
My computer has very good specs, runs Windows 7, and both the OS and PS are up to date.

Photoshop :: Control Auto-Align And Auto-Blend

Aug 3, 2007

I have just moved from 7.0 to CS3 (and PC to Mac) and am currently trying to get to grips with the new features! Once which I love is the auto-align and auto-blend feature(s). My question is, is there any way to control how these features work? I have seen on some web sites people talk about 'fuzziness' sliders where you can control that if an object (pixels) appear in X% of the photos they should/shouldn't be included in the final image but I cannot find these.

My intention is to use these features to take photos of monuments and have the people who are moving about removed from the final image (I guess it's the auto-align that would do this.) I tried a test and took a number of photos at home but I kept moving one object around (a pen.) The pen appears in all the images but in a different location so it always appears in the final image. When I tried auto-align with a stack that included one image without the pen, the pen was removed from the final image. Given the first scenario (i.e. the object is in all the images but in a different location) is there any way of automatically removing it using auto-align or would this have to be a manual process? In the real world, it would be possible to take a photo of a monument with people in different locations but it would be much harder (or take a long time) to take one where at least one person was not in all the photos (there's always someone loitering.)

Photoshop :: Can't Auto Blend Two 8-bit RGB Images

Sep 19, 2013

So I'm trying to do a face blend and I've repeated the process three times in order to make sure I'm not making any mistakes, but I still can't auto blend the two layers.

Any time I go Edit, auto-blend layers it's greyed out which is quite frustrating. I've taken a couple of screenshots to illustrate my problem. I am using CS6 on a new MacBook Pro.

Photoshop :: Auto-Blend / Focus Stack Crashing?

Nov 19, 2013

I'm having a problem with Photoshop CC's Auto blend. It was working fine for months, but a few days ago it just stopped working. It gets stuck after 1/3 of the way through the process and just sits there frozen... won't even let me cancel it!
I am bringing the photos into Ps from Lr 5 as layers, auto aligning (which works fine) then auto blending for focus stacking and that's where it gets stuck

Photoshop :: Blend Layers With Hidden Layers

Nov 27, 2007

I have 3 layers




the blending options are normal for TEXT and BG, but I have soft light for SHADOW. Now the BG layer actually contains an illustration which makes my shadow look realistic, however what Im trying to do is, save the picture with a transparent background with only TEXT and SHADOW showing, but as soon as I hide BG, the SHADOW layer will go back to the black color I drew and not look like a shadow. I tried merging text and shadow but either the TEXT gets soft light and gets ruined or SHADOW becomes normal and gets ruined. Its very late, ive been trying to figure it out for the past 4 hours so I hope I explained it clearly.

Photoshop :: Blend Layers When Stitching Panoramas

Apr 28, 2013

When I make panoramas in Photoshop CS6 (after selecting and preparing individual images in LR4), I sometimes wish to modify Photoshop's automatic blending of layers.  An example is when a moving person is in two or more adjacent frames & I wish to use a version from a different frame than PS selects.  The layer masks are all either pure white or pure black, thus selecting the portions of each frame that is used, but with no gray portions for blending.  Opacity of all layers is 100%.  So, some other invisible-to-me mechanism is being used to seamlessly blend the layers.  When I try to select portions of a different frame (in areas of overlap) by painting white on a mask and black on layer masks above it in the stack, I can partially make visible the desired area but it appears as partially transparent & thus low contrast.  How can I get full control of what is included in the final composite?

Photoshop :: Blend Modes/Merging Layers!

Aug 22, 2008

I'm having a huge issue in designing my up and coming website.

I've numerous layers within my soon to be designed page - however, a few of these layers are set to different blend modes (Overlay, Screen and Lighten).

I need to ensure that these layers remain looking the way they do on my page when they're part of my flattened site, but it's just not working for me. When I flatten all layers, it looks as I want it - however I can't do that, as I will ultimately be using a tiled background layer, and the background layer I'm using now is only as a guide.

how I can merge down a ('Screen', for example) layer, without it losing its screen look?

Illustrator :: How To Keep Layers From Auto-expanding In Layers Palette

Jun 21, 2013

I'm working on a rather complex piece of artwork in Illustrator CC with the latest Mac OS, with several objects on each layer.
Whenever I click an object, its layer in the Layers palette auto-expands, pushing all of the main layers off of the edge of the palette. I then have to click the little arrow to collapse the layer so I can see all of the other layers and (quickly?) get to the one I need.
I am using a Magic Trackpad (don't ask) so this task is particularly arduous, as the cursor is often somewhat difficult to maneuver when attempting to target small UI elements. My display height is only 1050 px, so naturally I would rather not make the layer thumbnails any smaller (25 px.)
Is it possible to disable or defeat the auto-expanding behavior? Placed in bold

Photoshop :: Adjustment Layers - Default Blend Mode

Oct 9, 2012

I'm using CS6 and wondered of there was a way to change the default blend mode of an adjustment layer?

For example, if you use the Curves adjustment, as well as increasing contrast it also increase saturation. I like to use the "Luminosity" blend mode so that I get the contrast without the saturation. By default, I'd like to be able to specify that any Curves layer I use should use Luminosity blend mode.

Photoshop :: How To Blend Layers To Simulate Real Light

Jun 14, 2013

I have two layers. One is completely red (r255,g0,b0). The other layer is completely green (r0,g255,b0).

How can I make it so that if I lower the opacity of the green layer (which is above the red layer), to 50% that the result is completely yellow (r255,g255,b0)?

I've tried all the blending options, none of them achieve this basic effect. The closest I got was something that looked like a darker orange.

Photoshop :: How Can I Blend Similar Blue Colors Across Aligned Layers?

Oct 11, 2007

I've just used the align layers feature to stitch together 4 pics into a panorama view. It looks great except the sky is different shades of blue for each of the stiched elements.

Is there an easy way of somehow merging the different blues so you end up with a consistent blue across the panoramic view?

Photoshop :: Auto-Changes Layers

Mar 28, 2012

So when I'm working in Photoshop and I have several layers open and I want to work on a certain layer, I click on the layer that I need in the layer menu and begin work, but this is when my problem occurs. Whenever I have the layer I want selected, and then I accidentally click on another part of the document that doesn't contain pixels from that layer, it automatically switches to that layer and it is very frustrating to work with and I have to be very exact when I try to click and drag a part of the photo without having it automatically switch to the layer behind it.

After Effects :: Merge / Blend 2 Layers To Move And Track Together?

Nov 8, 2013

I have an old man whose eyes are slitty and so I have created a white with a layer and feathered it round his wrinkles and it looks ok.  I can add mask track to this in ae and also track it in mocha. I have an iris import clip that I then need to add to the white.  It is in .png.

I cannot make a mask path appear on the layer information to the left of the screen so the iris dances about and can't be tracked.
How do I blend the white mask layer and the iris layer so they move as one?   Do I put them together then track them togethr in mocha?
I have spent a day on this trying to figure it.  On top of that I would also like to clone an eyelid half open so that I can put this on top of white layer, iris layer and then eyelid and track all together. But if possible the white and iris moving together would be enough.
In the instructions on youtube I have also found that when I hit 3d little cube icon I get a black background on the iris and not the old mans face how do I get rid of that?
This is for a man who gets wolf eyes in the film.  Would it be easier to get some wolf eyes in photoshop and stick those on? the clip is just 4 secs long.

I have downloaded a 30 day trial of Photoshop CS3 Extended. I use Windows XP. In the demo on the site, there appears to be a feature where you can align 2 images such as a group shot, where you want to take a face from one image and put it in the other image. Can you please tell me how this is done?

Photoshop :: Auto-Select Is Selecting Hidden Layers In CC

Jun 18, 2013

I use auto-select primarily when designing. I will often clicking and dragging a marquee box to select multiple objects. I immediately noticed that it is now selecting hidden layers as well, where it didn't before.
Is there a setting or way to change this? I am assuming as of now that this is a new change. They will still select even if the layers are locked so locking groups is not a solution for this.

Photoshop :: How Can I Use Auto Color On 2 Layers W/out Flattening The Image?

Apr 14, 2007

I've been taking photos with a homemade lightbox which includes a white background and I typically have to go into photoshop to make some adjustments to get the background pure white. When I'm snapping a photo of an all white object against an all white background, it looks rather nasty if you use the auto color tool.

So from my understanding auto color uses the lightest white and the darkest black and the reason the white/white scenerio doesn't work it because of a lack of black. So to combat this I've been creating a new layer and adding a little black with the rectangular tool and filling it with black. Now, I'd like to be able to delete this second layer once I've used the auto color feature but can't figure out how.

Photoshop :: Auto-select In CC Selects Layers Within Locked Or Hidden Groups?

Jun 24, 2013

i can't be the only one who thinks it's nuts that when 'auto-select > layers' is selected and i drag to select a bunch of layers, i also select layers that are turned off and/or locked, can i?i just confirmed that this IS not the case with CS6 -- locked or hidden layers are not selected upon dragging to select exposed layers.
is this a bug, or a bit of new functionality that i am failing to grasp? i did notice that in CC, on right-click there is the new option to "isolate layers", but this seems to just isolate & unclutter layers within the layers panel.

I have "group1" and inside that group, only one layer: "layer1". The blending mode for "group1" is vivid light and for "layer1" it's "normal".

Now, if I change "group1" to "pass through" and "layer1" to "vivid light" ... the result is completely different, while it should be the same, shouldn't it?
