Lesson 5. Layer Basics > Duplicating and editing layer comps

Duplicating and editing layer comps

Like other items that appear on various palette lists in Photoshop, you can drag layer comps to icons at the bottom of the palette and use the Layer Comps palette menu to edit them. You do not need to set the Apply Layer Comp icon for a layer comp in order to duplicate, delete, or edit its options.

1.
In the Layer Comps palette, click the box for the English layer comp to apply it to the image.

2.
Drag the English layer comp to the Create New Layer Comp icon in the bottom of the Layer Comps palette.

3.
Double-click the name of the new layer comp (“English copy”) to make it active and type English No Door.

4.
In the Layers palette, click the eye icon () to make the Door layer invisible.

In the Layers Comp palette, the Apply Layer Comp icon () now appears next to the Last Document State layer comp, but the English No Door layer comp is still selected.

5.
Click the Update Layer Comp button () to update the English No Door layer comp. The Apply Layer Comp icon is back next to the English No Door layer comp and the Door layer is still hidden.

6.
One by one, click the boxes in the Layer Comps palette to place the Apply Layer Comp icon beside each of the three defined layer comps. As you switch from one layer comp to the next, examine the results in the image window.
