    Let's say you have an image that's been edited to look like this:

    [​IMG]

    (the image duplicated, rotated 90° and then set both images' opacity to 50%)

    Is there any way to get the original image out of that, without damaging it too much?

    (I reversed the process to show what I'm trying to explain)

    hmmm you can try different transfer modes.. something like darken might work.. or you can simply trace the contour with the pen tool..

    The image I need it done with is actually a photo, so that might not work.

    As long as the layers arn't visible then there isnt any easy way.

    Separate the bits that are 50% and 100% onto different layers then duplicate the 50% layer and merge the two 50s to create a 100% layer. Now you have two 100% layers that create the whole image. Rotate one of the layers now you can just merge the 2 layers.

    EDIT: Scratch that. It only works if the layers were transparent to begin with.
