For some weeks I have been working with high resolution files with lots of layers and time to time I need to reuse and move groups of layers from different PSD files.
I used to do it by dragging the layers from one archive to another one, the issue is you need to disengage the window, select the layers and drag them. Then you need to move the layers to the right position.
But there is an easier way to move lots of layers to a different file, if the files have the same dimensions they go exactly to the same position, this is great when you work with lots of layers in high resolution.
To combine 2 PSD files y Photoshop:
- Open both files
- Select the layers or groups you want to move to another file
- Go to Layer> Duplicate Layers
- Choose the document of destiny… and done!
I’m a Photoshop user since its 6th version and I just discovered this command… what a tool!
