Chapter 8. Working with Layers

The ability to create content on layers has long set Photoshop apart from other paint programs. Creating content on separate layers enables you to retain control of the placement and effects for various individual elements in an image. (If you simply created objects on one layer in Photoshop, they would “blend” together.) By using transparency on the various layers and positioning objects carefully, you can create interesting and complex compositions while keeping open your options for making changes later. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to:

Use various methods to create a layer

Select layers

Create new patterns for use in layers

Change layer settings

Arrange layers

Merge layers to flatten the image
