Learn how to use layers to create designs, fix photos, or build collages.
  1. In Adobe Photoshop, select individual layers in the Layers panel.
  2. Keep layers separate whenever possible to retain maximum editing control.
  3. Turn the visibility of layers on and off by clicking the eye icon next to each layer.
  4. Create a new layer by clicking the New Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel. Delete a layer by clicking the trash can icon.
