Mini-glossary

Current layer and layer transparency

The currently highlighted layer on the Layers palette is the only layer that can be edited. An image can have just a Background (no layers) or you can add multiple layers to it . Layers can contain layer effects, they can be restacked and moved, and they are transparent where there are no pixels, so you can see through a whole stack of them. The advantage of working with multiple layers is that you can assign image components to separate layers and edit them individually without changing other layers.
