I have spent the last three hours researching the function of Layers in Photoshop. Having avoided this in the past, I can now see why, as it has been an uphill struggle all the way. Although I have managed to get this function to work, I am very confused and not sure how I got the results!
Anyway, next exercise to come and my bibliography for this research is below…
