Using Layer Comps

Layer comps are not actual layers at all. Rather, they are saved layer configurations that preserve the current layer order between all the layers in the Layers palette—as well as any existing settings for opacity, layer styles, and blending modes. Think of them as being similar to snapshots created from the History palette in that they preserve a specific image state that can be loaded and accessed at any time.

The Layer Comps feature is especially valuable for designers who create multilayered montage files with several layers of images, text, adjustments, and shapes. Design success often comes through experimentation because the designer shifts settings and layer order to modify the composite result. Layer comps give the designer the ability to preserve different design variations and access them with a single mouse click.
