Repositioning a Layer

When you moved text and shapes in previous tasks, you might not have realized you were actually repositioning an entire layer, including not only the selection but also the transparent pixels surrounding it. In this image, the text and the baseball stadium are on separate layers, and the task moves the entire layer lower in the image.

Click the name of the layer in the Layers palette.

Switch to the Move tool.

Click and drag the layer to reposition it in relation to the image area (or nudge it with the arrow keys, or Shift-click to constrain it as you drag).
