For this activity I wanted to create an educational graphic using layers that did something like Rick did with the mouse over feature. I really like that feature and I think it can be used for many applications within a lesson. After spending a lot of time trying to do this and failing, I’ve thrown in the towel. So, I’m not creating a graphing that has any educational value, but does show me using layers.

The process included using one of my own images. Then I found a picture of flames online and customized it as another layer using Adobe Photoshop. The reason I went this way was I couldn’t figure out how to make the white part of my image turn transparent in Gimp (Does anyone know how to do that???), but my wife knew how to do it in Photoshop so I used it. Then I added a layer of text. Here are the individual layers and what they look like put together.
