Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Aligning and distributing layers, part of After Effects: Kinetic Typography Techniques (2011).
In this movie we're going to have a look at the Alignment Options and Distribution …Options that are available to you in Photoshop. …Now, we have a file open here which you can open to which is called O4alignstart.psd. …And you can find that in the Project Files folder within the sub folder named …Photoshop files. And in here you'll see that I have …several layers. I can solo those layers by holding down …the Alt key and clicking on the eyeball. And you'll see that they're all different …layers with different text on them. Okay, if I want to switch them all back …on again I can just drag down the list to switch them all back on.…
Now, first thing that we want to do is, if I just make my layers panel a little …bit bigger so you can see what I'm doing. Is just make sure that I have all of …these layers selected so I can select one and then shift click down at the bottom …to select the others. Now the Alignment Options allow you to …make sure that all the layers top edges are aligned. …Or their bottom edges are aligned and you can see them shifting slightly as I do that. …
