Chapter 5. Working with Layers > Converting and Duplicating Layers

Converting and Duplicating Layers

You now know that you can create a new layer using the Layer> New command; in addition, Photoshop Elements creates layers in all sorts of sneaky ways. For example, whenever you copy and paste a selection into an image, it’s automatically added to your image on a brand-new layer.

When you start editing an image, you’ll often find it convenient to create a selection and convert it to a layer to keep it isolated and editable within your photo. It’s also quite easy to duplicate a layer, which is useful when you want to copy an existing layer as is, or use it as a starting point and then make additional changes.
