Chapter 3. Layers Primer > Selecting Multiple Layers

Selecting Multiple Layers

With CS2, Adobe gave us the ability to make more than one layer active at a time. Clicking on individual layers with no keys held will cause individual layers to be active (Figure 3.23). Command-clicking (Mac) or Ctrl-clicking (Windows) on a layer will add that layer to the other layers that are selected (Figure 3.24). Shift-clicking will select the range of layers that appears between the layer you Shift-clicked on and the one you clicked on previously (Figure 3.25). You can also Shift-Command-click (Mac) or Shift-Ctrl-click (Windows) within an image while the Move tool is active to add the layer that appears under your mouse to the layers that are currently selected. There is no limit to the number of layers that can be selected at one time.
