Chapter 6. Working with Layers in Photos... > Understanding Layer Blending Options...

Understanding Layer Blending Options, Opacity, and Transparency

Transparency means allowing light to pass through. When you think of transparency, think of windows or cellophane; your eye can see through an object to whatever is behind it. In Photoshop, you can set a transparency level of a layer by adjusting the Opacity slider in the Layers palette. By default, a layer's opacity is 100% (See Figure 6.12). You can change a layer's opacity so that objects in layers underneath become visible. Click the Opacity slider pop-up and move the slider or enter a percentage in the text field for the opacity (see Figure 6.13).

Figure 6.12. Setting the Opacity slider to 100% makes the selected layer fully opaque.
