Layers

The best way to understand layers is to think of each layer as a sheet of acetate like those used on overhead projectors. Layers are independent images that contain bitmap or vector graphics. The final image will be made up of a stack of all the layers within the image, depending on the order in which the layers are and the transparency levels that are set for each layer. You can work on each layer as if it were an independent image, without interference from any graphical elements that are on other layers.

It is best to place every new element, or addition to an element, on its own layer. You can always merge (combine) layers, and it is much safer and faster to build each element a layer at a time. After you are satisfied with the look, you can then combine the elements that make up that object.
