I have a white background layer, and then another layer which is a drawing of a telephone with the areas around it white. I want to add another layer behind this telephone image of a photo of telephone poles that would show through in all the areas that are white (background). However, when I clear the white selected areas and try adding the new layer of the photo behind it, the telephone image is semi-transparent despite being set at 100 opacity. When I delete the white background this still does not help.When I move the telephone drawing over the photo image and try arranging the layers this still does not help I have never encountered this problem before working with layers. Any idea why this telephone layer is transparent?
Can you post a screen shot that includes the layer panel?
