Please post a screenshot with the Layers Panel visible.
Layer > New > Layer Via Copy (cmd-J)
should duplicate the Layer, then you can click the Background Layer in the Layers Panel and use
Edit > Fill
to make it black.
ok i did so and got a black background layer
than i moved on in the next step of the tutorial
unlike the tutorial shows the brush only paints the onion layer black the picture itself does not change however
what transparency i moved too.
not as shown in the video the picture too
therefore my question still remains what do i wrong
all the Best wishes
