Hello! I am a student trying go a bit above the requirements for my assignment creating a low poly illustration in Photoshop. I did one version they way that was shown in class where you do the shapes straight onto the layer. If there is a way to do my triangles on a differernt layer while still being able to get the averages please let me know! Thank you so much!Screen Shot 2020-10-08 at 7.46.26 PM.png

I forget all the step to do a low poly, but I think there is a step to make the triangular selection then use the average filter. So you would just press ctrl/cmd-J to move those pixels, while still selected to a new layer. I guess you could either blur them on the original layer or do it after you copy them to a new layer. However, if you copy them first, you would want to lock the transparency of the layer.
