Chapter 15. Collage > Changing the Stacking Order

Changing the Stacking Order

Changing the stacking order of the layers may accidentally deactivate the Clipping Mask on some layers, so you'll want to be careful. If you have a bunch of layers with a Clipping Mask applied, and you move one of them above a layer that doesn't have a Clipping Mask applied, then you'll be deactivating the Clipping Mask on that layer. Or if you move a layer with no Clipping Mask between two layers that do have Clipping Masks, then it will suddenly have the same Clipping Mask applied to it. If you move the Clipping Mask layer (the one that's not indented and has all those arrows pointing to it) above or below a layer that isn't part of that Clipping Mask, then all the layers that are affected by the Clipping Mask will move with it.

Now that you know how to use Clipping Masks, let's take a look at what they can help you with.
