  1. Hello people,

    Did anybody notice that flattening an image sometimes changes the image?
    How can I avoid it?

    Flattening an image produces a result pixel-for-pixel identical to the
    original.

    What you see on your screen ight change, IF YOU ARE ZOOMED OUT, because
    Photoshop does a quick and dirty interpolation to reduce the size of the image
    when you zoom out. Zoom in to 100% and flatten the image, and you will see that
    it does not change.

    -try image > duplicate, and check merge layer options
    -might try merging down the layers, one at a time, command/control E
    -if that doesn't work, it's probably the interpretation of the style or layer
    effects that are preventing a clean conversion of the layer
