Layers are one of the most crucial parts of Photoshop. Unlike other editing software that applies edits directly to your image (often as an XMP file), layers give you far more control. Rather than everything becoming baked into one, you can more easily isolate, move, and alter individual layer adjustments.
The problem is that layers can be intimidating to work with at first. Luckily, this layers resource page will give you all the skills to start working with layers effectively in Photoshop.
If you are completely new to this, start by reading through the Layer Basics tutorials below!
Whether you merged or flattened your layers, the result is going to be the same. Multiple layers now have become one, and there’s no way to edit them individually. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways you can unmerge layers in Photoshop using some easy commands to get all your layers back.
The two most effective ways to keep your Layer panel organized is by using linked layers or groups. On the surface, each of these options appears to do nearly the same thing. When you look a little deeper, there are very notable differences between each.
It doesn’t take much to create a messy and disorganized layers panel. That’s why learning how to group layers in Photoshop is so crucial. Groups are a simple way to sort your layer panel and keep related layers together.
