Hi Experts,

I have used an image and a text object on top of it. I wanted to set the image to black&white style. I messed around with the options, and at the end I got what I want, but now I noticed that the image and the text object have become one single layer!

How to do I separate them? I want to edit the text!

Thanks,

To Ungroup the layers, select the group and choose Layer > Ungroup Layers.

Sincerely,

Ungroup Layers is disabled. It seems that I did something else. I am telling you, I wanted to make the image graystyle, and it prompted me with something about using that color and I pressed ok. Now it all one layer and I can't get them back.

You might accidentally hit the flattened layers. If you did not save it yet, you can still redo it using the history window.

Or press Ctrl+Alt+Z (PC) or Cmd+Option+Z (Mac) to redo.
 
Note: This will only works if you did not save and close your file.

I am afraid you can't ungroup the layer anymore.

If the the text objects are in different layer, then you just select the image -> Image -> Adjustment -> Black and White.

From the Black and White window you can adjust the graystyle you want.
