Getting Started

First, create a blank document. The name is unimportant. Give it a pastel background color for contrast with the images while writing the code. You can change the background color and add a background image later, if you wish. Select "grid > show", and "grid > snap to" on the view menu. Select "grid > settings", also on the view menu, and set your preferences like this:

Select "Draw Layer" on the objects palette.

Click and drag in the editor window to make the new layer. Make sure that it is smaller than the image which is to reside inside it (MrGourdHeadBody.gif, in this case).

(Please note that these images are shown here at 50% size. Any of them can be viewed at 100% by clicking on them. Full-sized images will open in a new window.)
