Lesson 3. Working with Layers

Lesson 3. Working with Layers

Layers are a powerful feature that helps you manage and organize objects on your page. Layers are transparent planes where you can create and store objects. With layers, you can control the stacking order of objects on your page, quickly moving objects up or down if the stacking order changes. You can also lock and hide layers to make complex objects easier to manage.

In this lesson, you will create a Web page and use layers to control the placement of objects on the page.
