    Thanks so much. I love the clipping feature and your video really explained it (other than not knowing what the option key was=alt key).

    This video never finished. It cuts off about half way through

  22. Kim (Reply) on Tuesday June 10, 2008

    Hey Chris awesome! The only problem is that when I clip them together… It doesn’t go into the gray box. It’s like a separate layer.

    This is such a great video, Chris. Thanks so much. I’m still new in photoshop. By the way, for those that have asked this question, I believe the alt key on the pc is the same as the option key on the mac
