Originally posted by AlessandroAnyone know of a real quick rundown of how to use layers ... specifically, I'd like to be able to translate this tutorial from Photoshop language to PSP, but I'm having difficulties.
AFAIK, there should a Layer option in the top menu bar and also a floating Layers mini-window in PSP, just like Photoshop. Unless you're using a very old version of PSP that doesn't use layers at all. Also, I think that the person giving meant "overlay" instead of "overlap." I also noticed "burn" and "dodge" which are also blend modes in PSP.
Unfortunately I don't have PSP anymore but couldn't this be done by creating a new layer over the layer of the eye, drawing (with the brush tool) or filling (with the help of the selection and bucket tools) the area with a solid color then selecting the appropriate blend mode for that layer?
Also there are many tutorials out there that explain the usage of layers and blend modes of PSP. Here's an example and another.
