Chapter 7. Layers > Layers basics

Layers basics

If you choose Contents: White or Background Color for a new image (File > New), the bottommost area of the image will be the Background, which is not a layer. If you choose Contents: Transparent, the bottommost component of the image will be a layer. Layers can be added to an image at any time.

Layers are listed on the Layers palette from topmost to bottommost, with the Background, of course, at the bottom of the list. The layer that is currently highlighted (active) on the palette is the only layer that can be edited. Click a layer name to activate that layer. The name of the currently active layer (or the Background) is listed on the title bar of the image window.
