Can you work with layers in LR?

I am not at all familar with LIghtroom, and only work in Photoshop and some similar programs. 

 

In PS I can load multiple layers or images and save them in one Photoshop .PSD file. For example, I could load a photo of a subject and another of texture and then creativity 'mix' the two, masks and different blending modes and opacities - and I can save all of these while keeping the underlying images intact. 

 

Can you work with multiple laters or images in LR in the same way.

Photoshop can save your new images (Collage from originals?) as PSD or TIF file types while keeping any layers intact and re-editable.

Lightroom can index these layered files in the catalog, but Lightroom is only aware of the image as one (flattened?) layer and applies any further Lr editing as if it were a single layered file.

The PSD or TIF file can always be re-opened in Photoshop with the layers intact..

 

(Slightly different answers might be needed depending on which App-  Lightroom or LIghtroom-Classic.)

 

 

Regards. My System: Lightroom-Classic 13.2 Photoshop 25.5, ACR 16.2, Lightroom 7.2, Lr-iOS 9.0.1, Bridge 14.0.2, Windows-11.
