    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    OK, I'm glad you understand I'm not just being pedantic! It's probably my CAD background where it's pretty much a crime to ever align things visually.

    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    Yep, I've got that OK! What I'm getting at, is whether there's a better way to position the ruler than zooming in and placing it visually? Like if I select the layer of the skewed map (by Ctrl + click on the layer's thumbnail), the marching ants know where the edges are. So the ants are...

    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    Thanks again. What I meant was to straighten the copied and still-skewed rectangle (of map), upon either pasting into a new document, or assigning to a new layer. When I said 'imprecise' re the Ruler, I meant that AFAIK there's not a way of snapping the ruler to an edge of the skewed selection...

    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    Thanks, I've got it now! I wasn't clicking on the actual thumbnail in the rectangle's layer, I should have known this. To avoid adding more and more layers, I've actually copied and pasted direct to the new (final) image. The only thing I'm a little unhappy about is the straightening process...

    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    Thanks for the swift reply. All makes sense to me, except I can't seem to use the rectangles to make the selection of the map layer. Specifically nothing seems to be happening with these two lines: Then select the map layer. Cmd/Cntrl + click the layer of the area you would like to...

    Multiple repeatable skewed rectangular copies?

    Not sure the title makes sense, so I've made an image to illustrate the problem: I'm trying to create a 'Rolling Map' for a navigation event, and want to copy sections of map something like I've shown, before pasting to create a long thin series of images, combined into a long thin canvas...

    Radial Clone?

    The sky's missing, as the camera on my Mavic Air will only shoot about 15 degrees above the horizon. I think this is a problem with many drones for panos. I had hoped there was a way to simply clone/blend the sky in PS.... Attached is the same pano before I manipulated to make the 'hole' the...

    Radial Clone?

    I use PTGui to create spherical panoramas. Recently bought a drone, which does an excellent job, except the sky's missing. (Using a tripod and fish-eye lens the problem always used to be with the nadir shot, due to the tripod!). I can manipulate the image in PTGui to give a zenith view, as...

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    OK, thanks, point taken. Actually I'm running up against another problem now! But I guess the Generator is new to us all, so I actually don't feel quite so dumb about this one :cry:. The generated files (jpg) get cropped to a bounding box, so if the viewport/mask originally contained some...

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    The only thing that's disappointing, is that it appears that for every copy I make, the filesize increases correspondingly, i.e. two layers are roughly twice the filesize of one. Is this inevitable, or am I doing something wrong? I had hoped for only a very small increase for each reference to...

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    Thanks SCTRWD, that's exactly what I wanted! :cheesygrin:

    Sorry, quoted the wrong post, meant to be #7 not #5

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    OK here are some screenshots: The original 'whole' image (layer masks disabled): Mask applied to area AA: And BB: (Of course I could also apply the masks to AA and BB simultaneously). This works, but I've had to create two instances of the underlying image. What I'm trying to do is have...

    Thanks, already watched that one!

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    SCTRWD - so if I do this, does that mean the image only exists once? I.e. as a Smart Object, the copy is somehow linked-to/updated-by the original? I'm trying to avoid having more than one main/original image. The main image will be updated in future, and when it is, I want to...

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    Thanks. My fault - I did wonder if I'd explained properly! It's sort of the other way round. I have ONE image layer. I want to create one layer (mask) which is a 'window' to a certain part of the image. And a totally seperate layer (mask) which is a 'window' to another part of the image. Each...

    Multiple windows (masks) onto a single layer?

    I have a large image, and want to use the new generator feature to automatically extract two specific areas of this image (which is on a single layer) to two separate files. Simple enough to do the first, using a layer mask, and works beautifully. But I can't work out how to do another, without...
