    Transparency / Opacity Bug - Photoshop 2018

    Gercovl

      Dear all,

       

      I've encountered a bug when loading files into the new Photoshop 2018. As you can see in the screenshot below, when I load an image, Photoshop messes with the transparency/opacity of the file. I think this only happens when I convert the layer to a smart object (see screenshot 2 and 3).  Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

          It looks like layer 0 has reduced transparency.

           

          Screenshot 1 is the smart object from both layers?

          2 is where you started before the smart object?

          3 is when you double click to edit the smart object?

           

          Just trying to get a clear picture of what is happening. I haven't run into this problem.

            Hi Melissa,

             

            I just noticed your reply and think it went like this:

            Screenshot 1 is what happend after i loaded a .jpg file and converted it to a smart object.

            Screenshot 2 is where I pasted another copy of the original image in a new layer on top of layer 0.

            Screenshot 3 is the same layer as shown in screenshot 2 but after converting it to a smart object.

              Gotcha. This is very strange behavior and I can't reproduce it. From what you have shared, it's just a jpg that you have converted to a smart object. However - it doesn't look like just a jpg. In Screenshot #2, the background copy layer is weird - it's not a nice rectangle as jpgs are supposed to be and it has transparency around the edges.

               

              My question is - is this only happening with this file or with others as well?
