This blogpost will briefly dive into the world of Layers in the Urban Jungle Photo Editor. Layer Menu is a very powerful tool within the Urban Jungle Editing App that allows you to set the scene for your artwork. Let’s start by selecting a template for a new project. I like this beach landscape. Now let’s start adding objects, we can use this mangrove tree.
The tree is adding to the landscape, now let's enlarge and pan it towards the left edge of our landscape. Every object when added to the image creates a new layer for that object. Why not enhance your creative freedom by buying the Pro version, that will unlock many more objects for you to use.
You can scroll the object selection menu at the bottom to look for more objects to place. Let's also add a whale and a moon. Now that we have placed a few objects, let's go to the Layers menu by clicking on the icon on the top right.
This is the Layer settings menu. The eye icon allows us to set the visibility. This a great way to quickly hide or show objects. The lock icon allows us to lock a layer, so we don’t accidentally move that layer while working on something else.
The next icon is the Blend mode. It allows you to set how you want your object to interact with the template or background. We can see that for the moon object it is set to blend, let’s change it to normal and see how it looks.
You can experiment with other blend modes to find the perfect fit for your project. The icon with three dots allows you to delete or duplicate that layer. Finally, you can hold and drag each layer to rank their positions. To place an object in front of another, you need to position that layer above the other layers in the menu.
Congratulations! You have just mastered the Art of layers on Urban Jungle Photo Editor.
