Creating a layer group

You’ll use the simple arrangement of stone objects from the previous task as a pattern that you’ll repeat across the image. This will make it easier to fill in the rest of the pattern.

1.
In the image window, drag the Move tool () across the six stone objects to select them.

Note

Be sure to use the Move tool, not one of the selection marquee tools.

Bounding boxes and corner anchor points appear around each of the objects, and the six layers are highlighted in the Layers palette, indicating that they are selected.

2.
Choose Layer > Group Layers so that a large bounding box encloses the selected objects, replacing the six individual bounding boxes.

Notice that the six Stone layers are now nested in the Layers palette under a layer group named Group 1.

3.
In the Layers palette, click the arrow to collapse the Group 1 layer group.

4.
Choose File > Save.
