Deleting Layers From an Image

You might want to delete an unused or unnecessary layer. You can use four methods to delete a layer:

■ Click the name on the Layers palette, click the Layers palette list arrow, then click Delete Layer as shown in Figure 7.

■ Click the name on the Layers palette, click the Delete layer button on the Layers palette, then click Yes in the warning box.

■ Click the name on the Layers palette, press and hold [Alt] (Win) or [option] (Mac), then click the Delete layer button on the Layers palette.

■ Drag the layer name on the Layers palette to the Delete layer button on the Layers palette.

You should be certain that you no longer need a layer before you delete it. If you delete a layer by accident, you can restore it during the current editing session by deleting the Delete Layer state on the History palette.

QUICKTIP

Photoshop always numbers layers sequentially, no matter how many layers you add or delete.
