basic problem on the basics tutorial about floating logos
hello,

I am stuck on the basics tutorial about floating logos and after looking around without any success for the same tutorial that could give me the solution (or the precision I am needing) I am asking you guys.
It must be really simple but I am stuck and I tried it dozens of times but I cannot get it like they do on the tutorial.
Basically I got everything alright til the "Using the layer mask" part.
There I am doing how it is said:
I select and copy the layer with the JTL on it, then I select the plasma layer and paste and anchor the floating layer as explained in the tutorial.
Then I have 2 differences with what the tutorial is displaying:
  1. the black and white JTL layer gets over and hides the plasma one
  2. in the layer dialog menu I don't have the plasma and JTL layer on the same layer side by side

Then obviously the rest of the tutorial is completely different from what I have, the new blue layer being hidden by the black and white JTL one that was anchored on the plasma layer.
So after hours of searching, restarting step by step from the beginning and a serious dose of head scratching, I would like to know if you guys could tell me what I got wrong or what I forgot to do (or was supposed to).
Thank you very much in advance!

Without seeing the tutorial:

Quote:in the layer dialog menu I don't have the plasma and JTL layer on the same layer side by side

This means that the JTL layer should be the "layer mask" of the plasma one. Possibly when you pasted it you didn't paste it to the layer mask of the plasma but to a new layer.
