Understanding layers is critical when it comes to photo editing and compositing.  In this lesson, students will learn how to use the layers panel in Pixlr.

  2. LastnameFirstnameLayer2 (whatever you want to do)
  3. LastnameFirstnameLayer3 (whatever you want to do)

You will upload all three of those files to Google Classroom.
