- If you use Photoshop, Ghostreader, Sketch…or some other drawing or imaging application,…you're quite familiar with the concept of layers.…Therefore it should come as no surprise…that there is a layers feature built into XD.…So let's take a look at it.…And to get yourself started…open the layers file…that's in your chapter one exercise folder.…When it opens you'll see that we've got…a number of our boards right here.…And we're going to take a look…at some of the layers features.…Now, how do you get at the layers panel?…Well it's right here, it's this little icon right here,…so you roll over and it says layers.…
