Let's say I have a bunch of layers with various graphical elements.
The one at the bottom is a photo that needs to be scaled up and
rotated, so that it fits in better with the layers above it. The
moment I attempt that, I am no longer able to see my layers because
the photo layer is now displaying above everything. What now? It
becomes hit-and-miss guesswork, which is counter intuitive.
That's why there is an opacity control in the layer transform tools
(rotate/scale/shear/perpective) and why it applies only during the
Btw if you are trying to move two layers to makje them match, there is
an "exact-aligner' plugin which does everything in one transform (avoids
blurriness). You pick two points on one layer, two points on the other,
and it figures out the scale/rotation/offset to apply to the second to
make the pair of points match:
