Why Layers?

When Photoshop was created, it did not have layers. It was an application that worked extremely well for touching up photos, frames of film, or video stills. The introduction of layers moved Photoshop from image touch-up program to robust graphic tool. The key to being fast in Photoshop is understanding the Layers palette.

Think of layers as tracks from a video timeline. The way you build and organize the show affects your end results. With proper organization, you can come back later and quickly make changes. Clear labels make it easier to move the project into After Effects or your nonlinear edit system. Mastering layers is your first step to becoming a Photoshop power user.
