Working With Bitmap Layers

Import The Sky

Save the sky.jpg file in the same folder as the other files for this project. Stay organized!

  1. Click File > Import and locate the sky file
  2. Create a nice big placeholder for the sky image... don't be shy
  3. Swap the sky and hills layers so the sky is behind the hills
