Via Copy

The Layers menu offers you a wide variety of options for copying, merging, and manipulating layers. Let's look at one of these choices. If you select an area of your image and then choose Layer > New > Layer Via Copy, the area you've selected will be copied from the layer you were working on and moved to a brand-new layer in the same position (Figure 3.58). This is particularly handy when you want to move just a portion of a layer so that you can place it on top of another layer.

Figure 3.58. Result of using Layer > New > Layer Via Copy and moving the new layer over the swirly layer.
