    Yes, I have recently purchased a copy of Corel Draw 9.0.  I have been using lately for some graphic editing which brings me to the point of this question.  Specifically, I saw an option called Layers within the Corel Draw 9.0 menu.  Since I am new to the area of graphic editing, I am wondering what layers actually are and how to create/delete them within a picture.

     Any thoughts or suggestions regarding this inquiry will greatly be appreciated.

Although this info is geared towards Photoshop, the concept of layers is clearly shown.

If you gotto tools > object manager. The layers palette will open in the right corner of your screen.

What's nice about layers, is that you can order your work into different levels a bit like different sheets of paper one on top of each other. You can control which layer holds which piece of text or picture. The layer on the top will appear above the layers beneath. By selecting the printer icon that corresponds to a layer, you can select which layers you choose to print.
Sometimes things can get too detailed and by clicking the eye icon off, you are able to see which layers are below/above etc.
By selecting the pencil icon, this makes the layer editable or uneditable, depending if it's greyed out(off) or blackened (on).
You can add or delete layers by pressing the small arrow in the RHS of the layer palette.

Hope this helps..............

    Before I begin, I want to thank everyone for their input.  All of the suggestions were certainly helpful in achieving an understanding of the concept of layers.  However, I want to award the points to yarmouth because this person's feedback provided a more condensed version of the concept of layers in addition to editing/creating/deleting/printing them.  Perhaps equally important, the comments from yarmouth is simply restricted just to what I am using, namely, Corel Draw 9.0 instead of some other program.

     Thanks again for everyone's suggestions.  I really enjoyed going over the recommendations.  They were really fruitful in accomplishing what was needed.

     Regards,
