Every digital photograph or piece of scanned art begins life as a single layer file. One and only one full color value exist for each and every pixel, and there's no such thing as transparency. Such an image is set to be flat, but as soon as you begin combining images, you add layers. Each layer serves as an independent image that you can stack, scale, or blend with other layers. An image that contains two or more layers is called a layered composition. There is no need to wait until certain point in the editing cycle to build such a composition, you can add layers whenever you like as we have several times in previous chapters.
In fact, it's difficult to avoid adding layers in Photoshop. But layers have a way becoming even more useful after some of the basic editing is out of the way which is why I wait until now to show you the many ways to create and manage layers in Photoshop. So with your permission, I'd like to introduce you to the layered composition as if you've never witnessed such a thing in your entire life.
