I have a logo consisting of a group of paths and smart objects, so I want them to stay editable.



Now all these are white in color. Behind them is transparency. I want to color all the layers at once, while keeping them editable.

  1. I tried blending modes with layers above them, but all results either did not color or left the background colored as well.
  2. I tried an adjustment layer but it just didn't do anything.

Blending mode example:

I need the logo itself to say, for this example, blue, but the background transparent.

Group all the layers containing the elements you wish to color.

Highlight the Group in the Layers Panel.

Choose Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay and pick your color.
