Thanx Tim, but my thick skull, (and it is getting thicker with age... ), still doesn't see the need for layers. I don't do much pp, and using layers seems like more trouble than it's worth.
Feel free to try and convince me that I'm wrong - it shouldn't be too hard...
I just don't understand why you wouldnt use a layer if you are going to do any editing? Its little more work (Ctrl-J, thats it) and so many more options are available, its completely adjustable and erasable. You can also easily see the effects of just the one operation by toggling the eye.
You just flatten everything when your done or if not done you can save the file and come back and do more to the open layers, then flatten.
Think of it this way: If a surgeon is doing an operation like a gall bladder removal he might want to keep that file separate from the appendictimy he did on the same person, its just easier and more organized that way.
Maybe not the best of analogys.
Thanks Tim for taking the time to write this up. Happy new year all
