View Full Version : selecting pieces of multiple layers at the same time

01 January 2004, 07:58 PM
does anyone know how to do that?
i mean..
i have several layers.
i want tomove just one portion of ALL layers at the same time.
but , each time i try , i either move only the layer on which i am , or the whole of the layer, and not the selected portion
what i want , is to be able to creat a selection, and move that portion around , IN ALL THE LINKED LAYERS AT THE SAME TIME.
is that possible?

save the selection and use transform...then reload the selection on a different layer and use crtl shift t to transform again.

pain in the arse aint it....feel free to nag adobe in their photoshop request forum

well its not quite that bad...but yes, there are some fundamentals which adobe seems to skirt around each upgrade...
