Layers introduce a considerable degree of flexibility into the way in which you can work with images. Layers let you keep various image elements separate so that you can make changes without deleting or changing the underlying pixels.

Each additional layer you create increases the file size of the image. You can selectively merge layers into each other to help manage and consolidate layers as you work. When you have finished editing your image, you can flatten the image to merge all layers into a single Background layer. You will need to do this to use your image in QuarkXPress or Adobe InDesign. You should note that you can only save images with layers in Photoshop and TIFF file formats.
