Layer

Layers are like stacked, transparent sheets of glass on which you can create images. You can see through the transparent areas of a layer to the layers below. You can work on each layer independently.

The image on the left has three layers. The photo is on the background layer, another image in the shape of a circle is on the layer above the background layer, and the topmost layer contains the type.
