    3. Last year I tried to suggest using layers for a project you were working on and you arrogantly replied that you didn't need any stinkin' layers, and proclaimed your 30 years of experience. When I questioned how you could have worked in photo manipulation that long and hadn't learned about layers you replied with the message below. "Yeh , I don`t understand what a layer is !!!, If you got a problem wth that I got two words for you Which start with F and Y , Phil" This time when I made a straightforward query why you couldn't treat this new problem the same way that you knew how to do last year, you accused me of trying to rattle your cage and "jump all over you". Now, maybe it is true that you are an old man with diminishing memory skills (although how you expected us to magically figure that out, I don't know) but that is not an excuse for your behavior. So, sorry Phil, you are on your own regarding help from me. Along with the many suggested online tutorials that have been posted in the past, your local library should have some good books on using layers and other aspects of PSP. The reason we can't just "give you want you ask" is that complex photo manipulation is not easy to "cookbook" as each image is different. Getting the proper result often does not lend itself to the drips and drabs of information that can be contained in email messages, especially without having the images posted so we could see exactly what needs to be accomplished. We can't tell you to make a particular kind of layer, what to set the opacity to, how to mask it and so on. The best that can be done on a list like this is to point you in the right direction, but in the end you have to learn the tools and then play around and find the final solution. Might I humbly suggest you discipline yourself to either go through some online tutorials, check out some training books, or perhaps take a class at the local community college. Even if it is for Photoshop and not PSP, many of the tools will be similar and the general principles will still apply. Oh, and don't bother to send another angry reply, as you are now in my blocked sender's list and I won't see it.
