markWhat are layers?
mark

color Layers act like a number of transparent sheets , laying the sheets on top of each other and then copying those sheets to produce a final image. Where no image data has been placed onto a layer, you can see through to any other visible layers. Layers enable you to edit specific areas of your image without affecting data on other layers.
