Active Layer

The layer you're currently working on will be highlighted in the Layers palette. To change the active layer, just click the name of another layer. Or, if you'd rather not use the Layers palette, Command-click (Mac) or Ctrl-click (Windows) on your image while the Move tool is active. That will cause the topmost layer that contains information under your cursor to become active. As you Command/Ctrl-click on different parts of your image (circle, square, triangle in this example), watch the Layers palette to see which layer becomes active. Unlike previous versions, Photoshop CS2 allows you to have more than one layer active at a time, but for now we'll stick to working with one layer to keep things simple.
