If you want to change the footer section from four columns to three columns, use three sidebars from "Footer | #1" to "Footer | #4"; similarly if you want two columns, use two sidebars from "Footer | #1" to "Footer | #4" and if you want 1 column, use one sidebar from "Footer | #1" to "Footer | #4".
So, each sidebar from "Footer | #1" to "Footer | #4" represents a column.
