    Step 3.
    Note: Multiple layers for your design must be merged into a single layer at the end.
    On your design layer you want to "Ctrl+Click" on the box of the layer to get the dots going around your design.

    Step 4.
    Now with the dots still going around your design click channels tab "beside your layer tab you will see a tab called channels". You want to create a new layer and should look like this.

    Before you do the alpha channels, Rasterize the layer effects.
