Chapter 3. Layers Primer > Linking Layers

Linking Layers

When multiple layers are linked together, using the Move tool or choosing Edit > Transform will cause the currently active layer and all the layers that are linked to it to change (as if all the linked layers were selected). The advantage to linking layers is that the linking behavior will be maintained regardless of which layer is active. So, if two layers should always relate in size and position, link them together so that rerlationship will remain consistent. To link multiple layers, select the layers and then click on the Link symbol that's found at the bottom of the Layers palette (Figure 3.26). After linking the layers, moving or transforming the image while any one of the linked layers are selected will cause all the linked layers to change. To unlink layers, select the layers you want to unlink and click the link symbol again.
