If you have a solution for the below it will be much appreciated.
The question regards moving a small selection on several layers.
This is the example image:
These are the layers of the image:
This is the method I’ve been using:
- View > Show > Layer Edges
- Select the move tool
- In the Options dialog activate “Auto Select Layer”
- Select the green square by pulling the move tools marquee over it. Both layers are activated
What I would like to happen:
To select both the green and black squares and move them in synchronisation. The red and yellow squares stay stationary.
What actually happens:
Photoshop automatically selects the red and yellow squares as well. The red and yellow squares move with the green and black squares.
I don’t want the red and yellow squares selected.
A solution would be to put each square on a separate layer. This would be time consuming as I'm working on a large file with 7 layers. Each layer has 99 squares. And each square has to be repositioned individually.
