Hi there hope all is going good,I wanted to ask if there is any layers Tutorials 

There aren't any layers tutorials for Paint Studio. Layers support is Paint Studio is on the simple side.

* Click to create a layer.

* Drag to rearrange layers

* Right click to bring up menu with additional actions.

* Click the Eye icon to hide (or show) the layer.

Hope that helps.


@Evelyn I see you are working in Pro Studio. You posted this in the Tree Studio Release topic. Please review the Pro Studio User Guide for some information about working with Layers in Pro Studio.

Hope that helps,


More details about the release can be found here :


Thank you Ken I found the answer I was looking for :

The link you gave me took me right to it:

Glad to have helped!


You certainly have been busy.
Got it and everything looks good.
I promise not to fiddle too much with the brush


By the way. I notice that no-one has commented on the appearance of Tree Studio and the other 'side' programs. Is this a foretaste of a new TB? Can we expect a darker UI?
It looks so much better.


Hi Thomas,

Is it a bit trickier to update the user Interface of Pro Studio because there are many more features packed in there. It does remain a possibility that the UI could be enhanced in Pro Studio. 


Hope you do as surely a color change wouldn't effect anything. it is an option in many other programs.



Hi Gabby,

Sorry, Tree Studio is different than Pro Studio and Tree Studio doesn't have a perpetual license option.
