    Default How to resplit layers?

    Ok got a newbie question to ask...my problem is that after adding text ti my borders and flattening the layers...now I want to go and change the layers...is there any way to resplit the image into their respective layers so I can edit the text in my border?

    If you have exited photoshop already... and saved the picture as jpeg, I'm afraid there's nothing you can do to get back your layers. Only when you save in a file format that supports layers like Photoshop Document, or TIFF (I think), can you save the layers along with it

    if u still at the window then juz undo or ctrl Z.
    but if u save le, i think cannot resplit one.
    so best if u "save as" another file everytime u wan to work on an image.

    alternatively, recropped the pic out w/o the border and signature (supposing the signature is on the border) then redo the border and the signature.

    provided you save before you flattened the layers.
