Layer selection! Select different layers of project
I sometimes create projects that have more than one layer in it. I certainly hate the fact that Spark doesn't allow me to conveniently select between those layers and make adjustments as Adobe Photoshop does. For now, I have to literally move certain layers out of the way and then do what I need to do with the others. Please add a layer selection feature making it much more convenient to select only certain layers to adjust.
I agree. It make editing much easier to be able to select different layers. It's really difficult when you have a image/icon that's buried and you need to move other layers to find the one image. I then have to figure out where exactly I had everything else afterwards. I would be greatly appreciative if this feature was added. Thanks!
This is very disappointing not having this feature. I have been selecting templates I like and want to manipulate the layers to make them my own, but I have to slide all the images to the side which puts the composition out of whack. Please add this feature :(
I feel like we need the option to view all layers. Sometimes if an object is placed behind another object the only way to move it is by moving the object in front of it. It would be useful if we could view all objects and select them.

Over allow users to easily select layers and mask as needed using your finger or stylus. It lets you zoom in really closely while using the masking tool without moving the layer. Honestly, half the time I start in Spark and end up moving to Over because layers are a total mess in Spark, you can't easily select the layer you want to manipulate, especially if it's below another object, so I have to move objects that are where I want them to fix the opacity, size, etc. And if it's not right I'm constantly moving pieces back and forth.

I love how easy it is to design stuff on this app to post it to social media in the exact size it is required. But it's difficult to save the same file for multiple platforms.
Eg. I created a project to share on Facebook. I spent hours on perfecting it. I share it, it's a success. Now, I want to share it as a Instagram Story. If I take the same file n just go to resize it, the file will resize but all my objects and materials will go out of frame. And it is impossible to find these objects since I can't zoom out.
This could be solved if we had a LAYERS TAB. Where all the objects could be rearranged and rezised easily.

I've been using spark to make encouragement cards and have 20+ comments/encouragements to add to the card. Spark is very slow to respond when there are so many objects, and it tests my patience to have to wait a couple seconds for every change to register.
Maybe Spark can be optimized better for having many different objects?
I love my results thought!
Agree with the comments below. I appreciate the features presently in Spark but the layering would be helpful. Especially if I add a photo, I DON'T WANT to have it as the entire background and I am unable to resize it.
Need to be able to add multiple layers of any file type please.
Actually if you click on the image, you can adjust the layer of it by using the slider next to 'Order'. This will change which layer the image resides on.
It’s ridiculous that Spark doesn’t have this feature. I’ve just about given it up because I can’t layer images.
By far the most overlooked feature. This will single handedly drive me to another program.
