OK, i am making a cover, the back ground is black, i have one other layer which covers front back and spine, i have set the overall brightness and contrast of the layer i want, now i want to reduce the opacity of just the back of the cover, now to me it makes sense to selct the back cover which i do with the marquee tool, i thought it would then just be a matter of reducing the opacity and it would do so only within the selection, not so, it reduces the opacity accross the whole layer, i have had a minor play with masking but maybe i am doing something wrong there....can any one tell me the correct procedure to aquire what i need ??

thanks

After you select the back with the marquee tool then cut it out, and past it back. It will make it a new layer which then you can change it's opacity alone. Atleast that's how I do it.

thanks for the quick reply, its prolly not the professional way to do it, but hey, if it works then its good enough for me, i suppose i could then merge the 2 layers back together.

thanks.

No need to even merge them back, you can just keep them as seperate layers, then when you go and save to jpeg it will all just be merged together. I'm sure one of the PROS will chime in with a more professnal way for you, if they know one.
