I have been using Photoshop for at least four thousand years but today I noticed something that I can’t believe I have never noticed before.
With the move tool selected, if you click the right mouse button (I neither know nor care what you do on a mac) you get a context menu allowing you to select any of the layers that has content beneath your cursor.
What’s more, if you select a layer and then hold down the shift key you can make multiple layer selections. How’s about that then.
If you needed one, this is a great reason to name your layers to something other than Layer 1 – n .
