    Overlay layers as fine as long as they don't have colors ;) Overlay patterns and etc are fine :)

    Happy birthday Lauw! :D I think everyone's happy they can use brushes again :lol: :p

    How did I know you were going to say that?? :lol: :p ;)

    Good luck all! :D

    Layers no, but selective coloring such as adjusting the levels and curves are just fine. You just can't add them onto the icon as new layers like adding a color burn layer ;)

    Re: LIMS Round 3: The Ultimate Test of Creativity

    OK, I'm now finding myself little confused? :confused: I think the origin of the confusion is the use of the term 'layer'... when technically all the changes you make to the image will be on different layers.

    My understanding of what quoth is saying is that we can't add a raster layer, fill it with a colour and then change the blend mode (for example, usual light blue colour burn and dark blue exclusion layers commonly used - or any raster layer that you then fill with a colour).

    All other layers (adjustment layers like levels, curves etc) are fine. As is adding coloured textures etc to your image...

    I hope this is correct, or I need to go and have a rethink about my icon? :)

    I tried to make one last night, damn it was hard! I had no clue how much I depend on color layers when I make an icon.
    :D
