2.3.2 Raising Layers

The order of layers in the Layers Palette controls how the layers are perceived in the image. The Raise Layer  entry, shown in Figure  2.5(c), shifts the active layer up by one, if possible, in the layer stack. The function Layer to Top  puts the active layer at the top of the stack.

Raise Layer and Layer to Top are also available from the button bar. The upward-pointing arrow icon provides these functions. Clicking on this button raises the active layer, and Shift-clicking raises the layer to the top of the stack. Note that if the lowest layer of the stack does not have an alpha channel, it cannot be raised.
