On the Pixelmator forums I see many people having difficultes understanding how layers work in Pixelmator. Especially when it comes to cropping layers. In this tutorial I will explain how layers work in Pixelmator when it comes to their size and how to work with them. I will also show you what cropping in Pixelmator actually does.
In my last tutorial about the paint selection tool I did a quick color replacement using an extra layer with a hue-blending mode. This method drew the attention of several of our viewers and today I will explain why I like this method over the other methods available for replacing color.
