Transform more than one layer at a time

Added on Thursday 15th of January 2009 01:45 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


Sometimes I need to resize graphics that reside on separate layers. Is there a way to scale or rotate more than one layer at the same time?


When you need to make the same transformations to content on multiple layers in Photoshop, don’t waste time editing each layer separately. We’ll show you how to transform multiple layers simultaneously in the different Photoshop versions.


To transform multiple layers in CS2/CS3:

1.       Shift-click the multiple contiguous layers you want to transform to select them. [command]-click ([Ctrl]-click in Windows) to select multiple non-contiguous layers.

2.      Click the Link Layers button located at the base of the Layers palette to link the layers, as shown in Figure A.
