This is an interesting chapter. It marks the beginning of a sidebar from everything we've seen so far. See Photoshop is ultimately two programs. On one hand it's the photographer's tool. A program that lets you correct an image until it's a work of absolute perfection. On the other hand, it's the designer's friend, permitting you to take images from a dozen or more sources and composite them into a seamless mind blowing whole. W-H-O-L-E by the way as in the sum of its parts. In other words, you have the vision.
Photoshop delivers in post. In this chapter we're solidly in designer's territory. We'll see how you take a bunch of layers and make them serve your ultimate and absolute needs.

I can't even tell you how cool- let me show you.
