Deleting a Layer in a Digital Photo in Adobe Photoshop Elements

To adjust how your digital photo looks, you can delete a layer (or layers) from that photo. Deleting a layer removes that layer’s contents from the image file. Use Adobe Photoshop Elements to delete a layer from a picture:


Open a layered image in Elements.

Choose an image from which you want to remove a layer.


If it’s not already visible, open the Layers palette.

To make the Layers palette visible, click the arrow to the left of Palette Bin in the lower-right corner of the Elements window and then click the Layers tab.


Select the layer that you want to delete.

Click a layer in the Layers palette to select that layer.


Drag the layer to the trash can icon.

You’ll find the trashcan icon near the top of the Layers palette.
