Remove base layer

Hello,

I am trying to create psd file with .Net, its working fine, but i can see one layer on bottom named Background in all files alongwith the layers which i added. I want to overwrite the base layer with my first image, how to do that?

image.png (26.1 KB)
In the above image, top three layer images I have added and saved.

The actual i need is like below
image.png (4.9 KB)

Here is the code for saving psd file
/////////////////////////////////////////////////
Aspose.PSD.License license = new Aspose.PSD.License();
license.SetLicense(“Aspose.PSD.NET.lic”);

// Initialize PsdImage class object
PsdImage image = new PsdImage(width, height);
Layer layer = null;
for (int i = 0; i < count * 2; i = i + 2)
{
string fname = args[i + 3];
string lname = args[i + 4];

    Stream stream = new FileStream(fname, FileMode.Open);

    layer = new Layer(stream);
    layer.DisplayName = lname;
           
     // Add input image as layer to PSD image
     image.AddLayer(layer);
                          
     stream.Close();

}
string outputpath = args[len - 1];
image.Save(outputpath);
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Please suggest.

Also, is there any size limit for the files to add in layer ? because, sometimes if i save with bigger size image, then psd file is saving with 0 kb.

Currently, the API does not have a method to remove layers from PsdImage.
To remove layers from PsdImage, the customer can use the following code sample:

        string sourceFile = "psdImage.psd";
        using (var image = (PsdImage)Image.Load(sourceFile))
        {
            var layersList = new List<Layer>(image.Layers); // gets all PsdImage layers as layer List

            layersList.RemoveAt(0); // remove layer from list

            image.Layers = layersList.ToArray(); // sets updated layer list back to PsdImage
        } 

Secondly, for the scenario shared by you, please share the working sample code along with source file and generated output with us.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply and a solution.

This method works fine for me. Will go with this.
