HPPE 4 - page 63


I am working my way through the book but I got stuck on #24 and 25 on page 63.

I should duplicate the red-green layer in #25 which I have just merged in #24?

Thanks for any advice. I guess just duplicating it before merging should do the trick or?

Solved. My mistake

I realized that there is a difference between merging layers via:

Command+E versus, activating the toplayer, right-click and choose merge down.

Can someone explain what is actually happening.

Glad you solved the issue. Thanks for posting.

You should not duplicate before hand, as then you will be duplicating a layer that is the wrong color.

If you do this in the way suggested by the steps, you will end up with a layer that is correctly named. The step itself explains the appearance on screen is yellow but the appearance in the layers is green. These layers are used to filter the needed result.

If you don't have the right layer active and press Command+E (ctrl+E on PC), you could merge any two layers depending on what is active -- or none at all. You need to have the rght layer active so that Elements does what you want -- it can't otherwise know what you want to do.
