I have created a logo with a dimmed layer on it.  When I copy and paste into another image or place in another image, the dimmed image is shown as 100%.  When I flatten the image the dimmed layer is no longer dimmed.  How do I make a dimmed layer export as dimmed?

Double clicked layer and pulled up a dialogue where I checked a box on dim layer and inputted a dimmed percentage.

That attribute is limited to that specific layer in that specific file. It can only be copied and pasted if you make this layer a sublayer of another layer and when pasting active "Paste remembers layers" in the layers panel (also: when copying the layer needs to be targeted, not just the image selected)

 

If you want to apply it to the document you can

- reduce opacity of the image using the transparency panel

- overlay a white rectangle and reduce its opacity

- embed the image and then in Edit > Edit colors > Color balance make it lighter

Instead of applying the transparency to the layer, apply it to the objects on the layer.

If the opacity is the only effect you applied to the layer, you can note the percentage, select the layer in the Appearance panel and choose Clear Appearance.

Select the Objects (don't click the circle next to the layer name) on the layer and apply the transparency.

Perfect that worked.  Clicked on the object.  Went to the menu on the top and adjusted the opacity of the object.  It exported as expected.  Thanks
