Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with image layers, part of Photoshop: Creating Composites (2012).
One of the key concepts, that you'll want to understand as you start creating …composite images in Photoshop is the notion of layers. …In Photoshop, you can have a variety of different layers, and, in fact, layers of …different types. There are Image Layers and then there are …Adjustment Layers. Image Layers contain pixels, of course, …and we can have multiple Image Layers in a single document. …You'll notice, for example on this image, I have two layers. …We can get to the Layers panel if it's not visible, by simply choosing Window …Layers from the menu. And on the Layers panel, you can see that …I have a Sun and Sky layer, that's the layer that we're able to see right here, …and we also have a Squirrel Layer. You can sort of think of these layers as …individual images stacked one on top of the other, much like you might have …multiple prints. If you're holding a couple of …photographic prints in your hand, obviously, one could be at the top of the …stack, and one underneath, and that's exactly what's happening right here.…
