Layer Merge FIX!!!


Ok have you ever gone to save an image with several layers as a pspimage or psd

And you get a pop up saying the layers must be merged in order to save?

I have and it used to be a pain in the butt til I worked out why it was

doing it lol and here is the fix I came up with.


Ok when you try to save the image and you get that darn pop up click on cancel

Now look over to your Layer Palette and highlight the Top layer

You need to be looking at the following icon




Notice how it is faded? this means this layer is NOT the issue

Click on each layer working your way down the palette until you

notice that icon lights up like so

Ok now with this layer still hightlighted ... Layers> New Raster Layer

Layers> Merge> Merge down ... Notice how now the icon is no longer light up?

Thats it problem solved, now you can go ahead and save
(I suggest checking the rest of the layers first though just in case there was more than one :)

Hope you find this mini tut useful
