Flatten

Many image-processing programs, like Photoshop, allow you to build images in layers. These layers are created one at a time and placed on top of each other to assemble the whole image. While the file is a pile of little layered images, you can manipulate each layer individually and look at how each change will alter the completed picture. In order to move the file to another program or save it as a GIF or JPEG, however, you must flatten all these layers into one file.
