Using Layers
raphics professionals use the most powerful features of Adobe Photoshop to create amazing images, and Adobe Photoshop Elements puts many of the same tools in the hands of the average digital photographer. Among the most powerful and useful features shared by Photoshop and Photoshop Elements is the Layers feature, which allows you to select individual parts of an image to work on without fear of damaging the master image. The Layers feature also eliminates the tedium of detailed painting or processing in small areas. If you master only one advanced image-editing feature, the Layers feature should be the one.
Layers provide you with the ability to merge multiple images, moving a sky or figure from one image to another, for example, or changing the scene of a photograph. You can bring Aunt Beth along on your vacation trip (at least in the photo records), even if she decided to stay at home. And think of all the places you can add a pink plastic flamingo!

Chapter 11: Using Layers
Select an Area to Move to a Layer
1. Select an area of your image (with the intent of moving it to another layer) in Adobe Photoshop Elements. Photoshop Elements displays the area surrounded by a dashed selection line. Choose from these three tools:
Brush: "Painting" over an area of the photograph with the Brush tool merely selects that area. It doesn't change the color, add color, or anything you normally associate with painting. To use the Brush tool, select it in the toolbox (as shown in Figure 11-1) and then move your cursor over the area that you want to select. You don't have to hold the mouse button continuously. You can continue to add area to your selection using this tool by moving the brush to another area, depressing the mouse button, and adding selected areas.
Magic Wand: This tool works best when selecting large and uniform areas of color, such as the sky. Areas with texture, such as waves, are broken into many subareas that are difficult to use. Select the Magic Wand tool (as shown in Figure 11-2) and click in the middle of the area you want to select.
If you use the Magic Wand tool and find that the selected areas consist of a large number of small selection areas, deselect the areas (as in Step 3) and try using the Brush tool instead.
Rectangular Marquee: This tool is the easiest way to select rectangular areas for cropping or cutting. To use the Rectangular Marquee tool, select it in the toolbox

(as shown in Figure 11-3) and place the cursor in the upper or lower corner of the area. Click and drag the cursor diagonally away from the selected corner.
You can add to an area selected with the Rectangular Marquee tool by selecting the Brush tool and painting more selection area.
If your selection is unsatisfactory, choose SelectO Deselect to deselect the object. Repeat Step 1, substituting another of the tools as necessary.
