I was working on a digital painting, and when I tried to merge 2 layers, these weird boxes kept showing up. No matter what I did, any merge would bring up these boxes that seems to be filled with parts of the painting.
So I saved and restarted Photoshop. When I loaded the painting back up again, there were the boxes but instead of being filled with color, they deleted chunks of each of my layers. Irreparable damage and since I saved it before I quit, there is no other version. I put so much time into this I really hope it isnt ruined.
I've never seen anything like this. Has anyone seen this happen before?
