Managing Layers

Understanding layers in Photoshop is an essential editing skill that is often overlooked in editing tutorials. We've had so many requests for this topic that I've created a special 5-part Editing Toolbox series focusing on everything you need to know as a pet photographer, about Photoshop layers.

This second episode is all about managing layers - changing visibility, moving them around, naming them and using groups to organise them.

Feel free to skip through the video using the chapter links below, or watch from start to finish for a complete overview.
