Tutorial: How Layers Work in Graphics Programs

O.k. here I have a verrry old tutorial from my website (www.graphicallusions.com) which was originally written for Paint Shop Pro users. However, if you're relatively new to creating your own graphics either in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop, or any other graphics program which supports layers, and are totally bamboozled by how they work and why you should use them, this should help (I hope). Don't be too concerned about the specific instructions beneath the introduction on how to work with the PSP layers pallette (especially if you don't even know what Paint Shop Pro is!) but rather focus on the introduction, which explains in detail just what layers are and how they work. So, I hope it helps! A Beginner's Guide to Understanding Layers
