What is the point you ask? Well let's just say we've added several lines of text to an image. When it's all done you notice that one of the lines doesn't look right. If you haven't used layers, you have to either start over or use undo to get back to the wrong line. With layers you can move those layers of text anywhere you want on the image. I decided to move Text 1 to the middle. It was simple, I didn't have to start over. I just used the layer tool, clicked on each layer as I moved them.
Important tip here:
Once you have all the layers on your image, save the file as a psp file. It will preserve your layers. Don't merge yet! Once you have the layered image looking great, go to Layers, then Merge. Save that image with a different file name so you don't lose your layered file. Believe me, I've had clients come back to me a week later and ask me to change one little thing, and I've been very grateful for that layered copy!
