Subject: Cropping Center of Layer
Hey all, hope your weekend is off to a good start.
I was wondering if someone could tell me how I might crop out the center of a layer?
I am trying to make a border for a picture Im working on and want to create a layer give it a color and then crop out the center.
Can someone provide me with tut so that I can do that?
if you want to make a border out of a picture (or a specific layer) you can do any of the suggestions above (i usually just make the shape white) and place it under the layer i want to show as the border. Move to the layer palette and hold down the ALT key with the cursor "between" the two layers and you should see an icon that looks like a half filled circle. the one layer should indent in the layers palette and theone layer should transform into the shape you made for the border.
