The Layer Editor contains all your layers and layer tools. You can add, delete, rearrange, group, and even hide layers. There are blending modes, opacity controls, layer transparency toggles, plus typical editing tools, and a default background layer that can be hidden to create an alpha channel or used to set the over-all background color of your image. The version of Sketchbook you are using will determine the tools available. When something is not available in a version, it will be noted as such.
The Background layer is at the bottom of the Layer Editor. When hidden (tap to hide it), this creates an alpha channel. The Background layer can also be used to change the background color of your image.
