    I have 35 numbered layers, each an individual page for a photo book. I want to export each layer as a jpg image so I can load them into the photo book module in Lr. Is it possible to batch the task? I tried Export, but that didn't seem to be the answer.

    I just wanted to share a few tips with newbies regarding working non-destructively. What is working non-destructively ? This means we try, as much as possible, not to destroy the original pixels of the image. 1. Use Layer Masks instead of the eraser tool /copy and pasting pixels selected...

Another self imposed challenge is to alter the tutorial and try to make...

    Unmerging Layers

    I had someone do a few graphics for me with PS and when they sent me the psd file, many of the layers were already merged. Is there a way to unmerge these if the file is coming from someone else, already merged? When I right click the layer, the option to unmerge isn't there. Thanks
