Selecting layers

If an image has multiple layers, you must choose which layer you want to work on. Any changes you make to the image affect only the active layer. You select a layer to make it active, and only one layer can be active at a time. The name of the active layer appears in the title bar of the document window, and a paintbrush icon appears next to the layer in the Layers palette.

If you don't see the desired results when using a tool or applying a command, you may not have the correct layer selected. Check the Layers palette to make sure that you're working on the desired layer.
