Chapter 6. Working with Layers in Photoshop > Aligning and Distributing Layers

Aligning and Distributing Layers

You can align or evenly distribute the content of layers using the Alignment and Distribute buttons in the Options bar (see Figure 6.5). For example, you may be creating button graphics for a website interface and you need to align them and evenly distribute them so they are equally distant from one another. First choose the Move tool in the toolbox. This ensures that the Align and Distribute commands appear in the Options bar. Then -click (Mac users) or Ctrl-click (Windows users) to select multiple layers in the Layers palette and choose one of the Align or Distribute button commands.
