About This Site

This web site is owned and maintained by Richard Lynch. The purpose is several fold: to support readers of The Adobe Photoshop Layers Book, to introduce the book to those who have not read it, and to offer resources to all other visitors interested in improving their skills with Photoshop and Photoshop Elements through the use of layers.


What About Onions...

In the animated movie Shrek, Shrek (the main character) likens ogres (which he is) to onions (which he is not) with very little explanation while talking to a talking donkey, who doesn't understand. Shrek obviously means to express that he feels ogres are misunderstood (that there is more below the outer layer).

Shrek: Ogres are like onions.
Donkey: They stink?
Shrek: Yes. Nooo.
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry.
Shrek: No.
Donkey: Oh, you leave em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs.
Shrek: No. Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers.
Donkey: Oh, you both have layers. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions.

People may know that Photoshop has Layers, but not everyone likes to use theem or knows what to do with them, and the hope of this site and the author is to change that.
