"COULDN'T MAKE A NEW LAYER FROM THE SELECTION BECAUSE THE SELECTED AREA IS EMPTY"

Okay, I've had WAY too many people complaining saying that at around 3:40-ish when they try to duplicate the other layers they get an error saying "couldn't make a new layer from the selection because the selected area is empty." That's because you've selected a blank area, which is because you have the wrong layer active. For every letter you duplicate, you HAVE to have the "check it" (or whatever word you're using) layer selected, like shown at 3:19.

So, just make sure your original layer of text is selected (in my case, "check it"), make a selection around the next letter, and press Ctrl+Shift+J (PC) or Cmd+Shift+J (Mac), and repeat.

GRAY FIRE FIX

1) At 14:10, I show you how to set the Green Channel contents as a selection. You may have accidentally selected/singled out the Green Channel (Meaning "Green" is the only channel that is highlighted in blue). To fix this, select the RGB Channel, then proceed with the tutorial by holding the Ctrl (PC) or Opt (Mac) Key and clicking the THUMBNAIL of the Green Channel. That will make the contents of the channel into a selection. Then go back to your layers, and continue.

2) You may have swapped your color mode to Grayscale. An easy fix is by going to Image - Mode - RGB Color
