Solid Color Layers

Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial or something that explains how to use color layers? I've been searching the tags and archives, and the only link i found that i thought might be helpful went to a deleted journal:( I'm fairly competent in photoshop, but i usually use selective coloring, color balance, curves, etc. I don't really know where to begin with color layers. I have seen some beautiful tutorials that use only color layers, but they don't explain how the maker decided to use the layers she used. I guess what I'm looking for is someone to explain to me the theory behind color layers and what kinds of layers set to what what settings give what kind of outcomes.

Thank you!

How to make a gif from a video in less than 10 minutes*

*Say you have the video on your computer already, and the softwares installed, of course.

Disclaimer: This is my way of doing gif, to each its own. I started making gif on Ulead Gif Animator when I was 13 and from there tried different techniques. I can safely say this way is the fastest I've tried and suits me best, and I hope you'll find it useful as well.
I'm not kidding with the 10 minutes; sometimes it's even less after some experience.

Not exactly sure what the terminology of what I'm looking for is, so I can't find it. Shoot me if it's been posted before.

Does anyone know how to wrap text around an object, such as this? I've searched and found weird, complicated tutorials that do not even end up with the product I'm looking for.

Any help would be nice. Thank you.
