Thanks again, ladies.  Linda, if I do edits like a lot of blemish removal, etc. on someone's face, and I do it the destructive way......will that harm the resolution of the picture when I print it?  Will you be able to tell that I have done it the "bad" way when I print it?  Like not being as smart, etc.


I guess I'm wondering if I should just start all over again with this picture.  It is a very good pic of Mom and Dad and I want to enlarge it.

Thanks, Linda.  I figured I was not doing my edits the best way.  I will check out your suggestions.

OK, this brings up another question I have been wondering about.


When I say I am editing on different layers, this is what I do:  I click on the background photo and hit control J which copies the background layer.  Then I make my edits on Moms face and while I am still on that layer, I hit control J again and then I make my edits on Dads face.  It works doing it that way except that you can't go back and change any of those edits.  Is this the correct way of doing this? 


I have just been kind of winging it and I think I am doing things the hard way.


Thanks for your help.

Thanks, girls!  It worked!!  


I merged my top 2 layers together (Pearly Whites and Moms Teeth) and then I added another layer at the top.  It then let me do more editing on their faces.  


I have been struggling with this same issue for a very long time.  I'm glad I finally took the time to ask you ladies.  Thank you SO much!!


FYI - - This site is wonderful.  I posted this same question on another scrapbooking forum about a day before I posted it here.  On the other forum, not one person has tried to help.  On this site, I had five people who responded.  Thanks again!!  It is much appreciated!!
