PSP 6. Deformation question!

Is it possible to deform multiple selections on different layers at the same time?

Imagine a tree on layer 3, and a goat on layer 4, I'd like to select both of them and deform them, but I can't get it to work!

Unfortunately PSP only can have one active selection which applies to which ever layer is active.

That seems a good enough answer.
As I'm giving you the points, do you know of any 'work around' technique that would take some of the guess work out of deforming multiple layers?

It all depends on what you want to do.
Since PSP always remembers the last values you used for a deformation you can just make the first selection and apply the deformation, make the second selection and apply the deformation, etc.
I have worked a lot in PSP and I always find that if you need to apply and effect to multiple areas, you can do it as above without any problems.

If there is a reason why you can't do this please explain in more detail.

The only other thing I can think of is to select both things you want to deform, promote them both to layers and then merge those layers. Thus the goat and the tree become one layer that is above the original layers they came from.
This works in some cases, but is generally unsatisfactory.

Thanks for that, coolmac. I think that you'r suggestions will be enough to do what I want.
