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?

  • I'm not writing a script, the option is actually called Load Files into Stack under a label Scripts. Commented Aug 1, 2019 at 20:01
  • I'm suggesting that you close the PSD and add it to the files that you load into the stack.

  • Not sure if that would work, but worth a try.

  • 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.

1 Answer 1

  1. Use the Scripts -> Load files into stack option. The files will be opened in a new document.

  2. Select all files in the new document and then select Layer -> Duplicate layer...

  3. Provide the correct destination (old document)
