Advanced Layer Tricks in Adobe Photoshop CC

Hi there. This workflow video is going to be all about going fast with layers. We've grouped all the layer of things together because for some strange reason, this is my favorite video to teach people, especially advanced people. I'm like, man, this is some cool workflow stuff. It's not super complex. Okay, it's complex enough. Okay, but let's let's imagine it's bigger but I've got a few layers here. So we're working on an image we had earlier. Obviously this can work on any image, but let's say I want to work on this paint drop in the words Super. It's actually S U P E and art on its own layer. But the layers panel here is a little confusing. So what I can do is fine now, I'm going to hold down my command key and click on this paint one here. So I got the R and that selected plus the Super. And then to say kind and click on selected case is only going to show me the selected layers I had. They're all still there. I can turn it off by going back to kind and turn it back on by going to ...

select it just kind of like tidies everything up nicely and I can work on these three layers to turn it off. Actually an easier way is just this little toggle switch here and you can turn this on and off and it jumps back into what you had selected. Go on. It gets better. So let's turn it on and let's instead of selected, let's go to kind and you've got these little icons that everyone ignores this right. You've been using Photoshop for years and you've never clicked on him. It just shows you all the layers that have text on. It just makes this soup. Maybe it's just me not just type, you can have type that also have drop shadows. It might be type and images you can have more than one on so that they're not that useful anymore. So let's just turn type off and just the ones that have pixels or just my adjustment layers. Please just show me those or just my layers are gonna turn that off. Just the ones that have smart objects on it. So I can see all those in one big go. Remember to send it off though. When you're finished. We'll look at a couple of the other ones in here. So kind we can look at names and you can do a search or if I want to find ones that are called a banana. It'll just show me those layers. I never use that one. You might be working on some epically big layers and that might be useful for you. This one's quite good. Let's say we've got some drop shadows going on. I want to find the effects that have Drop shadows on it. Just those layers so I can select them all and then go and change them or go in here and turn them off. Another one you might do is under here under color mode. You might say don't click this one here. This one over here and say I want to find all the layers that have multiply on them. Nandu Okay. But you might find that useful attributes. What colors are they? Smart objects, things that are selected. You might look at art boards. This one doesn't have any art boards so this one does okay, you can get super confusing. Right? So let's turn that off again. So normally you've got this kind of, it's never that tied either. If you're working in upwards things all over the place, you're like actually I want to be working on this file here. Just show me the skill share outboard and you can just go up to here, turn it on and it's going to only show me the skill share one. Not any of the other guys click on this one and it's going to show me just the you to me one. Super helpful. Super quick and I bet you've been ignoring it there. It's turned kind on kind of the default one and just make sure that little switches off when you're finished, let's go back up to this original file. Another trick is we've done this throughout the course already is that I've got my banana layer and I want to duplicate it. I just drag it into this new layer icon and it duplicates it. Okay, I'm gonna undo that another way is with it selected, hold down the option key on a Mac or a Pc and drag it just using the move tool that just makes a duplicate while you're dragging another couple of things as we looked at in the last video, you can change your thumbnails. But if you we know that if you right click the word, you get a bunch of options, but if you're actually right click the thumbnail, you get a different set. And what might be useful in here is you can adjust the thumbnail size. Okay, that's fine. But also can you see this this lady here is the circle that I'm using to crop this girl here. It's like a small part of a really it's showing me the entire document. You can right click and say actually just show me the layer bounds for all the different layers. So that one here is quite a big image, but the banana takes up the full image. Now the circle does. They're all just a little easier to see now rather than them being a small part like the banana and this. Watch both of them go to clip details for the in document bound. The banana is kind of showing you in relation to the larger document. Same with this and this is up to you. I have to switch back now because I want everyone to look the same like me and the tutorial. All right, next up is naming your layers. Like I if I'm honest, I never name my layers because I'm working with myself and I'm okay that I'm lazy but if I'm working with a client, definitely one of the last things I do. I don't do it while I'm working, but I've got to send them a file. Quick smart. I name all my layers. I'm trying to project a level of professionalism that does not get reflected in my layer names, but let's say I've got to go and do it. Cool. Little trick is bananas there, but let's say I'm going to be case sensitive now instead of double clicking these. Okay, going here and typing blue berries. This is a weird little shortcut. I like it. Okay and double clicking them all. What you can do I'm gonna undo is so I'm finished typing banana. Just hit tab on your keyboard, it goes down to the next one. So you never have to lift your tab again, banana. This one here, I can leave a Stuart saturation. Gonna call this one my mask. So I'm just tabbing down. It's just I find a lot easier blueberries too. It's just double clicking one of them and then tap through them all. Alright, the last one to do with layers is let's say we've got the smoothies layer, okay. And I like it it's got a drop shadow that I like but I want to apply that same. Drop shadow to the banana. So what you can do is right, click the word smoothies and you can go to, we looked at this a little bit before, but go to copy layer styles and select on my banana now. Right click it and you can paste layer styles. Do you like me and try and drag them from one to another? Doesn't like duplicate them as you drag it. Just kind of moves it so that's handy. Alright, I hope you found something useful in there. I don't know why I find it most exciting, but I hope you're sitting there at home or we're going yeah, that one little thing is going to change my life. Okay. It might not change your life, but hopefully it'll save you a little bit of time. Let's jump into the next kind of workflow video. See you there.

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
