This was supposed to be a comment, but to demonstrate these things, I needed more space: Clipping mask is the only mask type that you can move like that. Of course clipping mask is not ideal in every situation. Here's an example with: Group that contains everyting 3 Ellipse Clipping masks. I put the first Ellipse layer in a Smart object and duplicated ...

No. It's not possible to move more than one mask at a time. You could script the movement or perhaps record an action of the mask movement, then apply that action to each mask. But you can't drag more than one mask at a time. But, as you've pointed out, if the masks are all identical... Create a new group and move all the other groups inside it. Then ...

Honestly, the easiest and most effective way is as follows: Duplicate the layer into a new file. Set the Mode to Grayscale. Duplicate the layer right back into the originating file. Close and don't save the extra file, or save it if you need the grayscale version for something else. Remember to re-save your originating file. Done. Quick and effective.

You can try adding a thin stroke to a text in bold typeface (or a thick one to a thin typeface) could do the trick...Note that you should choose the color of the stroke wisely to suit the overall design. using stroke-only for bold or even regular typefaces (with the inside of the typeface transparent to reveal the background image) cutting the text ...

you could try adding a shape behind the text but in front of the image and adjust the opacity level on the shape until you are happy with the image visibility and the text legibility. hope this helps

By default there is no option but I know an unused combination is Shift+Ctrl+M. You can set it by going to Keyboard Shortcuts Then it'll also show up on your menu

In light of the new layer filtering features in Photoshop CS6, Adobe removed the Select→Similar Layers command. Hooray! It’s a rare thing when a menu gets shortened. Source So it's gone...Now you use filtering at top right of the layer menu:

There is no native feature for renaming multiple layers, at least yet. You can however start renaming a layer and use TAB to move to rename the next layer or Shift+TAB to rename the previous layer. This can be handy for smaller amount of layer renaming. Pro tip regarding, I would guess all of these exentions and scripts: In the bottom of Group Layer ...

This is not possible to do accurately with GIMP because GIMP does not support HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. You see, when you load a image in GIMP it is reduced to 8 bit per color channel, but Blender works with 32 bit per color channel. GIMP can't process colors that are darker than black or whiter than white, but Blender can. You'll need a application ...

Nope There is no way to do so. As you can see in image, there are 3 layers. Second layer is hidden, I used shortcut ctrl+A to select all elements in art board but only hidden elements were left unselected.

The hide functionality, like the lock functionality, is designed so that the targeted object cannot be selected, therefore copied. Maybe tell us about what you're trying to achieve and we can throw other ideas at you.

In windows you just have to hold down alt key wile you move it, anchor point will move but it will reset each time you select transform again.

Well I have posted a script that could be easily repurposed for this function: #target illustrator // Cycle between layervisibility A - B - None - around // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 layers = app.activeDocument.layers layer_a = layers.getByName("A") // insert layer names here layer_b = layers.getByName("B") if (! layer_a.visible && ! ...

Try this: Import each photo in a layer, create a layer mask, and draw your frame as a white rectangle on the mask. To position the photo, select the layer (not the mask), pick the Move tool, select all (ctrl + A) and float the selection (ctrl + shift + l). This way the mask will stay in place as you reposition the layer contents. (Anchor the floating ...

Short answer: you'll have to do this mostly by hand. The reason Auto-Align won't work for you is based on how it works. The algorithm looks for things that match, image to image, such as the background elements in a series of group photographs or the overlapping sections of a panorama. It has no way for you to tell it "this is my point of interest". Your ...

The following script will help to copy text directly from layer. https://gist.github.com/praveenvijayan/b4c367f4b903a3f9f250 note: Work only above PS cs6 Copy Script into Photoshop script folder and assign a shortcut and enjoy. Saves a lot of time.

Note: There's going to have to be some manual labor here not matter how you look at it.

Image > Canvas Size... Simply enter the size you want, set the way you want the canvas to expand, and click OK. Note: Canvas Size is not the same as Image Size. Canvas size changes your canvas without altering the size of anything else.

I'm not sure how to reduce the image size without resizing the layers, but just in case someone else isn't able to provide you with a more direct solution: Couldn't you make a new document at the appropriate size, put all your layers + groups into one parent group in OldDocument, and then just transfer the parent-group over to NewDocument? Drag-and-drop the ...

Yes with adjustment layers the two features only work when used together. Here it is: turn on ALL the links and you'll be transforming linked masks. So think of a mask as a child of its layer. The only way for two masks to transform together is if they are both linked to their parents, and then the parents are linked together.


2

Linking layers, via the 'chain link' icon at the bottom of the layers palette, means that when you move or transform one layer the other layer will also move or transform with it. With layer masks (including adjustment layers) by default they are linked, meaning the same - moving or transforming is applied to both the layer and the layer mask. Once you ...

If you absolutely MUST only use a single layer, AND your shapes are spaced out, you could use a gradient fill on the shape layer. With a bit of tinkering you should be able to achieve 1 layer and multiple colours. However Photoshop is not designed to work this way. If you don't know how to separate shapes into new layers it's easy: just select your shape ...

If by "shapes" you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no. It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked - but it always takes additional ...
