move it upwards (see final result)
(translator’s hint : to move a layer upward very precisely
you must activate the Move tool, then hold down the shift key and press the up arrow of your keyboard
each time you hit this key, the layer goes upward
to make it move slower, hold down the Ctrl key instead of the shift key)
