Why Are Layers So Important In Photoshop?
Definition of Layers
one portion of a complex image that can be manipulated independent of all other portions of the file
Advantages to Using Photoshop Layers
-Separating parts of the image and editing them without affecting other parts of the image
-Using layers as guides or reference without including them in the final image
-Importing new images to add to the composition
-Moving the new image around, resizing it, and doing whatever you like without damaging the original image
-Creating multiple versions of a layer and experimenting with different effects
-Applying filters and effects to layer independently
In Photoshop, layers are used to work on individual parts of an image while not affecting other parts. They allow you to modify your image, add text, change colors, put two pictures on the same page, and more without modifying your original photo.
