- One tool that I have completely neglected…so far is the eraser.…We find it in the tool palette over here.…Now, the reason why I haven't talked about the eraser…so far is that if you're working on a single canvas…or maybe a background layer that is filled with color,…there is really no need for the eraser.…Because if you paint something,…in order to get rid of it, you can just…pick the surrounding color and paint over it.…
There's no reason to use the eraser for that.…However, if you're working on a layer…and paint something,…here's where the eraser comes in.…Because the eraser erases pixels.…And that way we can restore the transparency…on our layer by using the eraser.…Another possibility to get rid of…content in a layer is to use the selection tool,…any selection tool, and just hit delete.…
This will delete the content in this layer forever.…
