The basics of modern photographic editing is the layer, whether you're using an adjustment layer, an adjustment brush or a gradient. Of course, when we hear the term 'layer' we often associate it with Photoshop, but both Lightroom and Capture One use the same concept of layers, even if presented in a slightly different way (e.g. the new Lightroom talks about masks - but each mask sits on a layer of its own).

The beauty of layers is that there is no limit - well, usually. Let's say there is no practical limit to how many layers you can add and each layer allows you to improve your photograph, step by step.

Getting your head around layers can be a little tricky. If this is you, then check out the second in our two part series that explains layers step by step. And if you subscribe to Better Photography for this issue, remember you'll also be able to read the first one as well beause you get access to the full archive.
