Partial "restore" Instant Alpha or magic wand
  • Hello,
    Would someone please explain how to bring back a selected (part of an) image from an Instant Alpha or Magic Wand?
    Am working on a pic with a large areas to practice. After continuing forward, I noticed that I took off a piece of eyeglasses. It's noticeable and to far behind in undo.
    I'm new to Acorn and am chewing through the tutorials~meanwhile, I'd like to know if there is anything I can do with this pic or just start a new one.

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hello,

    The instant alpha and magic wand tools are "destructive" when applied directly to a layer which means you have to undo your work to restore the original. One way to accomplish things nondestructively is to use a layer mask.  

    Hope that helps.

Howdy, Stranger!
