    Whenever I create a layer in PS CS2, it comes out transparent. I want the layer with the white background. How can I make it the white background and not transparent? I deleted the background layer, fyi.

    Layer properties has very few options, none of which help.

    THANKS!

    thats what I do if it isn't already white.

    If its new just set the background (box just below dimensions)to white before clicking ok

    Im pretty sure what you want is impossible.

    Why would you want a new layer to be filled with a color anyway? It would cover up everything below that layer...

    You can create an action that makes a new layer and then fills it with white, then set it to a shortcut key. I think youre probably not understanding something correctly though since making each new layer white doesnt make sense.

    I think the op wants a new background layer with white.

    I forgot to say say that you may need to move the layer to the bottom of the layers list so its underneath everything if you make the layer in an already open file if the above is correct.

    LeviG got it.... if i delete the locked background layer....

    1. create a new layer
    2. place that layer at the bottom of all your current layers
    3. fill the layer with white
    4. name and lock the layer
