Custom layers in CPB are like sheets of tracing paper. You can see through transparent areas of a layer to the layers below. You can move a layer to position the content on the layer, like sliding a sheet of tracing paper in a stack. You can also change the opacity of a layer to make content partially transparent.
You use Custom layers to perform tasks such as compositing multiple images, adding text to an image, or adding patterns.
A new image has a single layer. It is created automatically when adding a base image and is not edited as a layer. However, you can always change the base picture to another.
