Part 1 of 6: An Introduction to Layers

By Discovery Center Team

This is the first tutorial in our Working with Layers series. Layers are fundamentally important in most photo editing projects, and can be used in many different ways and for many different purposes. In this tutorial you’ll learn:

  • what are layers and why you would use them
  • how to find and use the Layers Palette in PaintShop Pro
  • what types of layers you can create

In our next tutorial we’ll go into more detail about the different types of layers you can create – Background, Raster, Vector and Art Media.
