Chapter 5. Working with Layers > Changing the Layer Order

Changing the Layer Order

The layer stacking order determines which layers are on top of the others and so plays a big role in determining how your image looks. As you build a composition, you may find that you want to change the layer order to work more easily on a particular layer and to get the final result you want. The actual, visible overlapping of elements is determined by the layer order, so you made find that you need to reorder layers frequently when you work on more complex images.

There are two main ways to change the stacking order of your layers. The most common and versatile approach is to drag the layer wherever you want in the layer stack. The second way is to select the Layer > Arrange menu and then choose commands such as Bring to Front and Send to Back—a method similar to what you use to arrange objects in a drawing program.
