How to measure and fill with the same transparency?

Jul 25, 2012 2:48 PM

for example creating a fill using Edit > Fill with a random Color and Opacity in the Fill dialog, then later without the original information about the Color and Opacity but just the file, how can I make exact same fill and opacity again?

    If you have a partially transparent layer then use "Layer > Layer Mask > From Transparency" to convert the layer to full opacity plus a mask.


    That'll give you the colour of every pixel and a grayscale representation of the opacity of every pixel.

    White represents 100% opacity, so, yes, 100 minus the black (K) percentage of gray in the mask is the equivalent of opacity. The Info panel can tell you colour and opacity of the displayed composite of visible layers under the pointer/cursor at any time.
