Chapter 3. Layers Primer > Grouping Layers

Grouping Layers

Have you ever had one of those mega-complicated images with dozens of layers? If so, you are probably familiar with the agony of having to fumble through an endless sea of layers, hoping you won't drown before you find the right one. If this describes you, you'll be ecstatic to know you can group a bunch of layers together. A group of layers looks like a folder in the Layers palette. You can view all the layers in the group or just the group name.

The folders that are known as groups in Photoshop CS2 were called Layer Sets back in CS. They visually look the same, and most of the functionality is identical. The only real difference is that you can select multiple layers and Shift-click the folder icon to place those layers into a folder. In CS, you'd have to link the layers together and then choose New Set From Linked from the side menu of the Layers palette.
