View Full Version : layers doing the same thing

03 March 2008, 02:35 AM
i'm alright with photoshop; i don't know loads about it, but i can get around it just fine if you explain it to me. in 3d animation, i've got a bump map and a color map. if i put them on separate layers, can i make everything i do to one layer happen to the other? (including transforming and clone brush tool) anyone have any ideas? maybe it's a simple answer, and i just missed it...

Two solutions I can think of.

First, is to simply group the layers. That way you transform the group, apply layer effects to the group, and so on.

Otherwise select the layers you wish to link then right click them in the Layers Palette and select "Link Layers". I know this will work for transforming, I don't know about layer effects such as transparency and that sort of thing..
