What's Image Layer

E-mail Print PDF

Image Layers are used in digital image editing to separate different elements of an image. A layer can be compared to a transparency on which imaging effects or images are applied and placed over or under an image.

The standard kind of layer is called simply "Layer" in most programs. It contains just a picture which can be superimposed on another one. The picture can cover the same area as the resulting picture, just a part of it, or, in some cases, a bigger part than the final picture.


 
 The top layer (the bird) is moved to the left. The top layer is moved to the right.

 A Layer can have a certain transparency/opacity and a number of other properties. A basic layer may have more than a hundred different possible settings. Even though some of them overlap and give the same result, they give a skilled user a lot of flexibility.

Two Layers can blend using one of several modes which result in different light and color combinations.

 

 The top layer (the bird) is partially transparent,
so the background clearly can be seen through
its wing.

 In this picture the top layer has a drop shadow,
a red color overlay of 40%, a gradient overlay
from red to yellow of 20% opacity, and a slight
bevel effect.
