Chapter 5. Working with Layers > Defining Layer Designations and Attributes

Defining Layer Designations and Attributes

Not only does Photoshop give you the ability to generate layers, it gives you the ability to generate layers with different designations.

The ability to control the designation of a layer helps to organize the different elements that typically make up a Photoshop image.
