Layers

Since so many operations rely on layers, checking the Layers palette should be first on your checklist. You need to ask yourself:

  • Am I on the correct layer?

  • Is the target layer hidden?

  • Is the layer active?

  • Is the layer locked?

  • Should the layer be locked?

  • Is the layer part of a clipping mask?

  • Is the correct thumbnail active (layer versus mask)?

  • Is more than one layer selected by mistake?

  • Should I have multiple layers selected?

  • Are layers linked that shouldn't be?

  • Am I clicking on a Group rather than a layer?

  • Are the layers stacked in the correct order?

  • Am I attempting to work on a Smart Object rather than an image layer?

  • Are the Opacity and Fill percentages appropriate?

  • Is the layer blend mode set correctly?

  • If I'm adding a new layer, have I clicked in the appropriate part of the layer stack?
