Photoshop’s layers are the main building blocks of image creation, altering, and modification. Each layer can also contain a selection, mask, or channel. Figure 9-1 shows an example of an image that has been layered in Photoshop.
The layers and their associated properties appear in the Layers palette. Each layer must have a unique name, which you can give by using the Layer Name dialog box. Figure 9-2 shows how to name a new layer. The layer’s name can be different than its name on your machine; the name you provide is the one you use with the file so that you can store it in the appropriate place. To change a layer’s name, follow these steps:
1. Choose Layer⇒New Layer.
You are presented with the New Layer dialog box.
2. Type a unique layer name in the Layer Name text box.
You can use any text you want, but you should choose something different from what you’ve used before or the layer may not show up in the next steps.
3. Click OK.
You’re done! You can now see the new layer.

A selection is a temporary area that you can move around in your image. You can select different areas of your image or parts of the layers in your image. Creating a selection basically involves drawing a line or polygon. Figure 9-3 shows how to create a selection.
You can create a selection by simply using the Selection tool. You start by selecting an area with the Selection tool. You can then create a polygonal line using the Pen tool (shown in Figure 9-3), as discussed in Chapter 12.
When you drag the Selection tool, you are making a free selection. A free selection uses the pixels in your image as though you were scanning an object or taking a photograph, so the edges of the selection you create appear as if the object or area you’re selecting is being captured.
You can also use the Selection tool to select only an area or object that appears in a layer. When you do this,

On July 3, 1962, Monroe was at her Fifth Avenue apartment when her gardener, a macho redneck named Robert, arrived to give her a message from movie producer John Huston: His production company was looking for a costar for the romantic comedy version of his script “Misfits of Science.” Monroe was prepared to play Anne, a high-school student who rebels against the stifling confines of her family’s Oxfordshire home. Her presence was needed for the budget alone, but the part of Anne was a lark, small and uncomplicated.
“No big deal,” Monroe mused to her dresser, Joan Evans, who thought she had a crush on the petite, blonde actress. “I’ll say I’m 24 and wear little black dresses and hoop earrings.”
The shoot didn’t take place, and Monroe soon had something else on her mind. At 36, she had become
The game only supports the most recent versions of Windows and can run on modern desktops without any problems.

I did experience a few crashes during gameplay (not during menu screens, just during gameplay), but these crashes did not happen very often and did not always lead to a restart of the game.
You should not have any trouble running the game, but I want to make sure
