Layer Groups in Photoshop®

We have at least three different reasons to use layer groups I have a bunch of these little shells I'm gonna select him command g that puts them all in a group okay but I want to do more than that I want to add an adjustment layer all right so I want to colorize him so I'm gonna add my adjustment layer let's say hugh saturation colorize what happens everything well it's in the group everything below that gets affected so we drag it to the top everything's still affected but then we create our clipping mask so there's two reasons to use it okay another reason use it I want to drop shadow on all of them don't put your drops out on your individual layer adger drop shadow to the group and everything within that group will get that drop shadow if you take something out of the group it automatically releases the drop shadow you want to make a change to the drop shot of you only have one drop shadow to make a change to so there's organism and finally you decide that you want a mask everything...

in that group so we add a layer miss we grab I don't know our marquee tool we just select an area we fill that area with black okay to hide that and then we decide we want a non destructive feather so we go over here to the feather slider on properties we bring that up and you can see how the edges there are getting a little bit softer. So be sure to check out layer groups organizing masking clipping groups. You click a photo to him like we showed earlier and also the ability then to what was the last thing to add.
