Renaming a layer

If you create several layers in a document it is often helpful to rename them to aid in identification.

To rename an existing layer, open the Palette menu and click on Layer Attributes and type the name there. You can also double click on the layer to bring up this dialog box.

When moving image files from Photoshop to Painter and vice versa, most of the elements stay intact including the layers, layer masks and selections. However, there are some special elements that do not work in the same way, so it is well to be aware of these differences. These are the differences particular to moving layers, for a fuller account of Painter/Photoshop compatibility refer to the description in Chapter 1.
