Simple Swirl help please
« on: September 26, 2017, 05:36:25 AM »
Hi everyone I was attempting the swirl tutorial today but hit a problem, I have the second shape active as instructed but when I press Control and J it duplicates the layer but doesn't move it, so I ended up with a dozen layers all in the same position. I don't know what I am doing wrong so any help would be appreciated. Thank you
Chris.

i think i might know what is happening

at step 6 you  ctrl click your shape to duplicate it
at step 7  you use the move tool to move Down shrink and rotate a small amount ..

it is important that you dont touch anything else with your mouse ..(if you do you deselect all you have done and you will duplicate the shape on top of each other) believe me i KNOW..i do it ALL the time.

so try it again
and make sure you dont click on anything after using the move tool to shrink turn and position your shape .
then hit the ctrl J

if this isnt it  just yell out ...
