11.1 The Layers Dialog

Figure 11-1 shows an example of a Layers dialog for the painting created in Chapter 3. This dialog is probably the most important of all the GIMP dialogs, including the Toolbox, since the latter can be replaced with the Image: Tools menu (or keyboard shortcuts). The Layers dialog is a component of the multi-dialog window by default, and you will most likely want to keep it open. If you do close it, you can open it again by going to Image: Windows > Dockable Dialogs > Layers or pressing to bring it back. The keyboard shortcut brings up the dialog in the foreground, even if it was hidden by a command.
