Step 3: A quick overview of Pixlr's layout

Picture of A quick overview of Pixlr's layout
You should see something that looks like this, with your own photo visible. Let's quickly look at what we've got.

On the right, you'll see a box labelled Navigator. This lets you zoom in and out of the photo and move around when you're zoomed in.

Below that is Layers. This is one of Pixlr's cleverest features. Pixlr lets you stack multiple images on top of each other, then edit them all individually, a bit like making a collage. In this collage, however, you can choose to make the different layers change size, become transparent, or even act as complex filters for the layers below them. Don't worry, we'll come back to that.

Under that is History, which just shows a list of all the recent actions you've performed in Pixlr. If you've made a mistake, you can skip back in your History to before you made it. Think of it as having multiple Undo buttons.

OK, you're now a Pixlr pro! We're all set to get editing!
