The Compositing of Digital Painting: Using Layers

  • Wallace Jackson


Now that we have covered selection sets, alpha channels, object masking, and similar operations that involve the use of layers and channels, it is time to look at more advanced layer functions in Painter, as well as layer functions in Inkscape, which are very similar to layer operations in digital image compositing software packages, such as Photoshop CS or GIMP. We have already covered creating new layers, naming layers, converting selected objects to layers, selecting layers, hiding and showing layers, and so on.
