FINESSING LAYERS

Working with layers is more than just stacking them up in the order you want to see the image information. You can arrange, group, clip, and work with advanced blending options to create surprising effects quickly and efficiently.

Clipping Masks and Groups

Using a clipping mask is a fast and easy method for controlling how layers interact. A clipping group always starts with a base layer that has pixels on transparency. After adding an adjustment, fill, neutral, or image layer on top of the base layer, select Layer > Create Clipping Mask or (Cmd + G) [Ctrl + G] to group the upper layer with the lower.
