25 Mar How to merge two PSD files in Photoshop
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 drag the layers manually from one archive to another one which is a pain if you want to place the elements exactly in the same position.
But there is an easier way to move lots of layers from file A to file B, if the canvas have the same dimensions they snap exactly to the same position, this is great when you work with lots of high resolution layers.
To combine 2 PSD files y Photoshop:
- Open file A and file B
- In canvas A select the layers (or groups) that you want to move to file B
- 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!
