I need some advice regarding aligning layers, for example suppose I have a circle that’s off-center somewhere and I want to add an element to be on that circle, and it’s dragged as close as possible by eye. When I try to align the new element on the circle, I get inconsistent results. Sometimes the circle will shift to match the new image, sometimes the new image shifts over the circle as intended, and sometimes both shift to meet somewhere in the middle. I’ve tried locking the circle but it still will move. I’ve tried changing relative position (circle over/under the new image), but no luck.
What is the best way to do this? The only way I can think of to guarantee this is to center the stack of images in the center of the face (255,255) align the images with the “center” tool, and then move the stack back to it’s desired location. This seems somewhat inefficient.
What am I doing wrong?
