Photoshop looses effects when flatten. Please help.
on Apr 11, 2007 at 8:56:47 pm

Hi.

I just made a photoshop piece and two of the layers have effects (both bevel effect), now... I have never used the bevel and emboss effects for graphics on photoshop before so I don't know whether this was supposed to happen or not... but when I flatten the image to be saved as jpeg, the two particular layers lost the bevel effect. Could someone please help?

Thanks very much.

What type of layers are they? What is the content on them - vector or raster? Is one of the layers the Background layer? Are you flattening the image through the Layers menu or palette flyout menu or by exporting to a jpeg?

Hi. Blending mode on the layers are normal, and one layer is an image while the other is a rasterized text. I flatten it using the menu on the Layers palette. And none of them is background layer.

Have you tried "merge visible" instead of flattening the image?

Hi... I finally managed to flatten the image without loosing any effects. The photoshop I used to create the piece was photoshop 6, but when I brought it home and flatten it in photoshop CS it did it fine. So I guess it was the version that caused it? Thanks for the help :)
