Chapter 5. Working with Layers > Creating a New Layer

Creating a New Layer

Layers give you control over the design elements of your document, so Adobe's Photoshop makes sure you have plenty of them. You have the ability to create up to 8,000 layers. While that may be more layers than you would ever use in one single document, it guarantees that you have the creative options to carry your designs to any level you desire. To create a new layer, you must first have an open document. If you have more than one document open, make sure the active image is the one you want to add a layer.
