• Place layer that will create the knockout above the layers that will be punched through, and make the layer you want to reveal the Background. (Choose Layer > New > Background from Layer to convert a regular layer to the Background.)
• Place the layers you want to use in a layer set. The top layer in the set will punch through to the bottom layer in the set or the Background. If you want to reveal the Background, make sure the blending mode of the layer set is set to Pass Through (the default).
