I feel like I must be missing something really obvious here. I have an image layer which is essentially a teardrop shape but I would like to cut a hole in it that is the same shape, just smaller. I have duplicated the original layer, made it smaller and placed it on top so now I would just like to cut that area out from the bigger one to leave a transparent 'hole' in it. Does anyone know how I can do this?
Thank you so much!
Merge the two layers and use a selection tool (magnetic lasso, quick selection tool, etc.) to select the smaller shape and delete the selected area.
