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.

These are the differences particular to moving layers, for a fuller account of Painter/Photoshop compatibility refer to the description in Chapter 1.
