Do you think Photoshop for Dummies is too technical? I usually recommend those books to those looking to learn something. Otherwise try a nice google search for something like "photoshop layers tutorial."
What are you trying to do with layers? Perhaps I could give you a nice tutorial.
It's not that the book is bad I was just looking for something like a visual tutorial. I pick up allot fast by watching than reading. I understand how to crop a main subject out and add a pic for a background layer. But I don't understand much about improving a photo with layers. I know it's allot of trial and error but i just want to get 2 know the basics in using layers. Ive read a few things but like i said I get more out of seeing than reading.if I watch someone do something I absorb about 90% if i read it i absorb around 10%
check out Linda.com for some tutorials. I think you might have to pay or get a membership or something like that but they have some really good stuff. My friend used to edit for them and would show me some of them from time to time.
