... but in general, you don't do the "merge down" step and keep the separate layer because you may change your mind. In my book the only good case for merging down layers is when you want to apply a color transform to the merged result.

I followed ... this is good, ! cheeeeeers

RE: layers
Instead of making a new thread I have a question about layers.

Every time I edit a new layer,
and then if try and move the selected (edited) layer,
the background image keeps automatically selecting and moving the background.

How do I make that stop happening?

Damn, you know what? Idk why this always happens, but no sooner did I make this thread than I realized, when you have the edited layer selected you have to actually click on a piece of the edited image you want to move-- not somewhere "in" the image, but the actual part of an image itself.

Sorry about the confusion, and thanks.
