When flatten image yellowish blotch appears

Hello,

...so I was working on the sRGB 8bit file where model has textured suite top(blueish) Once I flatten image or merge in anyway one particular place always gets yellowish blotch that appears of the size of palm. It never happened before so I am a bit confused what is going on here. I have tried many different ways including save for web my PSD file. Blotch still persist.

And this is why you never ever ever merge. Why would you merge all your hard work? Just use "Save as" and save it for whatever flat format you need to.

Tell me then how do you save as Jpeg for web use? The fact is you can't upload PSD, TIFF +layers on website can you? I never had a problem in my life ( apart until I nailed my saves for Jpeg)

Use Save as?

Go through your layer stack and it'll appear, it's either a Color or a Normal blended layer.

If you hit flatten, that shouldn't happen. You have an error in the way they're merged. Without seeing the psd I can't tell you where it's located, but you should be able to just hit flatten. If it's merge visible, or you are merging one by one, you can end up with errors.

I tried it many times. And every possible other way. Doing stamp on top or duplicating psd file all end up same at the end. Do you want to see my layers lay out? Should be that enough for you?

You seem to have it figured out now, but just knowing the composition wouldn't help. These things typically surface due to the order things are merged conflicting with some amount of opacity difference in an alpha channel somewhere. I still don't entirely understand from your followup where you found the problem. In my own experience it's better to structure these things in a way that mitigates the possibility of problems.

That's what I thought. Also, be aware that if you don't flatten at once ,but in steps, these kind of problems can emerge if you affect the layer stack while flattening. This is why I said that if it looks good, just keep it as it is, and simply flatten by saving.
