View Full Version : My photoshop layers aren't working properly - or they look wierd

03 March 2008, 01:46 AM
I've been working on this new file in Photoshop and I've been having some problems with the layers....I've never had that before. Its like the channels or something and I don't know how to make it work. Its not that I can't work on the file, but its almost like the layers have their own channels or something.

I've attatched some images to explain what I mean cus I can't explain it. The images are all rendered from Maya....I rendered them with black backgrounds and saved them as photoshop files.

Its just that I have to keep going into channels and selecting RGB to be able to edit anything properly and the little lock on the layer has a different colour.

Any help would be great.

Why do you have quick mask on? It looks like you may have the whole canvas selected. Turn it off, other wise every time you switch layers it will get wierd. HIt "Q" and see what happens.

Hey, thanks so much, that worked really well. I just pressed Q and after pressing Q, all the layers were like they were supposed to be.
