I know that I can Scripts > Load files into stack. This will create a NEW document where each external image is it's own layer. I'm wondering if there's a way to do that but load that stack into an existing document that is already opened.

  • Can you include the existing document into the group stacked by the script? – 13ruce Jul 31 '19 at 17:28
  • I'm not writing a script, the option is actually called Load Files into Stack under a label Scripts. – brooklynsweb Aug 1 '19 at 20:01
  • I'm suggesting that you close the PSD and add it to the files that you load into the stack. – 13ruce Aug 1 '19 at 20:06
  • Not sure if that would work, but worth a try. – 13ruce Aug 1 '19 at 20:06
  • So it does work to a degree; it loads the top layer of the PSD, but not anything else. So if your PSD file has 5 layers and you stak 2 images plus that PSD, you'll get a total of only three layers. The other issue with this solution is that I have think way in advance if I'll ever work with this PSD and other files in one stack. I work with a ton of file so to think that far ahead is fruitless for me. I'm looking for a way to import stacked images into an open PSD. Thank you for the suggestion though. – brooklynsweb Aug 2 '19 at 21:11
