The Mask: selection techniques > Selecting Everything On a Layer at Once!

Selecting Everything On a Layer at Once!

Once you have one or more objects on a layer, putting a selection around everything on that layer is a one-click affair. What’s especially great about this ability is that not only does it select the hard-edged areas in a layer but it also selects the soft-edged areas, such as drop shadows. It’ll make sense in a moment.

Step One

Open a layered image in which one layer contains elements you want to select and alter.
