The layer is one of Photoshop’s most powerful features. On the layer panel, we can add, edit and paste elements without disturbing other elements. We can also say that layers are elements on which at different levels we can put images or an object and provide transparency for better visibility of object also at the end for creating one combine image we can merge all layers and save the image.
