    ok, new problem. im slicing some boxes out of a pic, and one of those boxes has 2 boxes sliced within it. i want to save these boxes selectivly (i dont want the 2 boxes within the box) i understand the slice selection tool, and shift+click to cherry-pick slices, but when i save them, the slice lines are extended and chop-up my selections.

    i just want to save this layer with the areas i select only. it kinda like swiss chees, and i want to save the holes.

    so you have like a filled layer and want to do some transparent holes in it? and you want to save the holes?? (I'm sorry this was what i understood, if not explain better)

    when you have a layer, the transparency, is saved in a "hidden" alpha channel, so if you want to get that selection back just ctrl+click in pc, command+click in mac on the layer icon, in the layer palette... I hope this is what you seek...

    so if what you are saying is that you cant had new layers, it's because the is saved as indexed mode, which doesnt support layers, go to image>mode>rgb

    no prob. i like to help ppl (must be due some bad karma in my past lifes ), and besides problems with indexed mode are very frequent. You can't imagine how many times that kind of stuff happened to me... hehehe I just stood there looking at it and think, "wtf???"
