Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Group layers, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- There is another interesting way in which you can use…the color that already is in a specific layer…as a selection, so to say,…and that is grouping.…I will now create a new layer…and I will apply a little bit of paint…with a paint brush,…maybe I'll make it a little bit smaller.…And I'm painting over the outline of the hill here…by intention because that will…give us the opportunity to see…the layer grouping in action very clearly.…
So I have now created…these rocky hilltops…and they are sitting on their own layer.…And now I want to use grouping to make sure…that they are masked off with the contour…of the hills here.…And in order to do that,…first I have to move this layer right above the…layer that I want to use as a mask.…And that's this layer here,…the hills on the background.…
Now the layer with the gray color application…is directly on top of this layer and now…if I hold the alt key and move my cursor…just between those two layers,…my cursor changes…and when I now click,…the layer with the gray color application…
