I'm Parker Pierce, and today we're gonna talk about making layers with MS Paint. In the default version of MS Paint, you don't actually have a layer function. There's some workaround's for it though, that some people figured out. In this video, I'm gonna show you some comparisons between MS Paint and Photoshop. First of all, of the various tools in Paint, you have the eraser, and this selection tool to move and erase things. In the resize and skew window, you'll notice that there are no layer options there, either. Rotation does not have layers. Selecting and moving objects do not give you an option to move another layer. The view tab has many functions as well, but none of them include layers. However, if you move over to Photoshop, you'll see that they have a window dedicated to layers, and you can organize and work with it however you like. If your work needs layers, then you'll have to look beyond MS Paint for that.
