No - a Floating Selection is internally attached to the layer it was pasted into. I suggest you try one of the following workarounds: 1) Promote the Floating Selection to a New Layer (just press the new layer button); Position this layer; Duplicate it as many times as you want; For each duplicate, manipulate the layer stack to place it above one of your ...

(in Photoshop) The easiest way would be to adjust this in the 'effects' of the layers palette. To do so, just go to the bottom of the layers palette, click on the 'fx' button and select 'gradient overlay', adjust the gradient as needed. Note: this is providing you have each piece on it's own layer so the effect can be applied individually. (in Illustrator) ...

Photoshop CC just added the Generate feature which would allow you to dynamically export layers. that combined with Layrs is pretty awesome. but this won't help you in CS6, sorry. the easiest workaround would be batch rename in bridge, that will allow you the control over the renaming you are looking for.

You're right, they are adding the second modifier because there are groups; have you tried working in slices and saving that way instead? You'd get just the single name. Well you'd get a lot more flexibility all the way around, anyway. You could look up how to batch rename via command prompt, if it's not too scary. ^_^

In addition to e100 great answer, using shadows with blur on text may be a good trick.

If both the color and the topography are on a single layer in Photoshop, or a single rasterized object in Illustrator, there is no automatic way to separate them. Hopefully your client can find a file of just the topography, or you could try to find a third-party map vendor to purchase a topographical map of the area - it shouldn't be too hard to scale and ...

If I understand the question right, you mainly want to get pieces separated and organized. If objects are in separate Sub-Layers, you can select each one you want in the pallet and choose Collect to New Layer and then drag that new Layer out on it's own, however, this does not help with objects within Groups. For Grouped objects, I would just select each ...

Yes, having all illustrator objects/paths in the same layer (and not just grouped) can be necessary when you need to export an SVG-file for the web. Example I did this for a map with regions, where I needed all the small islands to be included in the exact same layer (and name). Otherwise the islands in that region would be read as it's own individual ...

The only work around is creating the effects yourself. It may seem daunting at first. But in reality most effects are just.. Duplicating the current layer. Setting a clipping mask of the original to the duplicate. Setting a blur, color, stroke effect on the duplicate. Different combinations of the last step will achieve different layer effects.

Duplicate the layer and create a new empty layer. Hold both layers and merge them (duplicated one and empty one) then hit ctrl+t. You will see the dimensions in the info panel (window -> info)

You will have to make the effects their own layer, or convert the object to a smart object. Smart Object(recommended non-destructive) Right click on the layer and convert it to a smart object. It should account for the effects in your bounding box and dimensions. OR Effect Layers Select the object and Go to Layer -> Layer Style -> Create Layer This ...

New layer (Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+N) Merge Visible (Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+E) Command/Ctrl click the tumbnail Delete the new layer if necessary You could also use the Create Layer option by Control/Right-clicking the fx icon next to the layer name in the Layer Panel.

The easiest method is to place all the individual images into a folder on your desktop then use File > Automate > Contact Sheet II... within Photoshop to select the folder of images and have them arranged into a grid for a single document. I believe the Contact Sheet script may be part of Adobe Bridge for CS6. If you already have everything loaded ...

When you put the pavement image in a new layer above the red background, I would try to do some smoothing first to make the colors more consistent. Additionally, your image is of very bad quality and you should try to use a better image of a similar pavement. When you think the quality of your image is OK, convert it into gray or black/white by thresholding ...

Put the Brick layer above the Red layer and choose and set the layer to Multiply

Place the paving stones layer above the red layer and apply a layer blending mode to the stones. Experiment until you get the effect you're after. When you select a layer, the blend mode is available in a drop down menu toward the top of the layers panel.

No, you haven't missed anything. What you're doing is correct, but you may have to wait for a moment before you start to drag, depending on how much memory your machine has. (Photoshop swaps bits of itself in and out based on how much memory is available and how much it needs. This can occasionally cause some user interactions to fail briefly, then work ...

CTRL/CMD-G and group the two layers together. then just select the group. Also keep in mind, you don't always see the marching ants of a whole selection. Gradients/blurs/shadows can sometimes have ants or not, depending on zoom level.

The problem you're running into with a Ctl-click to select the shadow layer is that the selection is proportional to the opacity of the object on the layer. A 50% opaque section will be 50% selected, the part that is 25% opaque will be 25% selected, and so on. That means that when you paste, you get a much less opaque copy! (It's just the way selection ...

There is nothing built into Photoshop itself that affords that level of fine control. The workaround is to use the Batch Rename feature in Adobe Bridge or Image Processor Pro (which comes as part of Dr Brown's Services), or to use an external batch renaming utility.

That is not a feature of Illustrator. You are perhaps confusing this with Photoshop's Generator feature, which will save layers automatically as images, if they are named in a certain way. Keeping an image centered in the browser window is done with a CSS style or javascript.

File > Scripts > Load Files Into Stack A dialog window pops up, click the Browse button and navigate to your files, select them and click Open. Then click the Okay button and each image file should be loaded as a layer into a Photoshop document.

In the Layer panel open the panel options: Check the option Paste remembers layer: This also works across different Illustrator files.

pasting an object will almost always paste to the layer that you have selected in the layers panel. so just double check what layer is selected when you're doing your copy/paste.

This is a version-dependent answer, because you'll need to be on CS6 or later. Select a layer Layer > Copy CSS Paste to your text editor of choice Repeat this process for each layer. If you've enough layers, or this is something you're likely to want to do regularly, you can automate this with an action. This second Method requires Ps CC: In Ps CC, ...

I only have the cs4 photoshop scripting reference on hand (freely available from adobe). The object name for a layer is ArtLayer and there is a property called Bounds which is: Read-only. An array of coordinates that describes the bounding rectangle of the ArtLayer. This might allow you to query the layers and extract the data you need. The trick ...
