Quick Tips

Invert to Alpha

When working with vector – created art and the source art is unavailable, modifying the art to create a logo can be a pain, to say the leastâ”particularly when it's flattened and the background needs to be knocked out.  A careful combination of Invert (Command – I [PC: Ctrl – I]), Color Balance (Command – B [PC: Ctrl – B]), and layer Blending Options (Control-click [PC: Right-click] the layer name) can yield simple background knockouts of one- or two-color logos without making a mess.
