(Migrated from 6 years old blog) 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 below has three layers. The photo is on the background layer, a semi-transparent rectangle is on the layer above the background layer, and the topmost layer contains text. Notice highlighted areas in each image shown below their relation.
