In Corel Painter, layers are objects that contain image data. Because each layer is a distinct object, you can move it around and edit it without interfering with the image data on the canvas or other layers. Likewise, you can work on the canvas without interfering with any of the other layers.
Layers can contain either pixel-based or vector-based images. How you work with a layer depends on the type of data it contains. When you work with layers, you use the Layers palette and the Layer Adjuster tool.
