Grouping and ungrouping layers

One of the nice things about the Layers panel in Photoshop is that you can create Layer Groups. You can use groups to organize your layers just to group things that are associated together or create a before and after folder or whatever you want to use the grouping metaphor for. I'm going to go ahead and select these four layers by just clicking on the first one and then Shift-clicking on the last one here. These were all my image layers and I want to put them in their own group. So Command+G on the Mac or Ctrl+G on Windows will group those selected layers and put them in a generic name and called group one. Of course you can always name that and I'm call it the Sisters, so by double clicking on the name and then hitting Return. The layers look like they are disappeared. They have just been put in this folder. You can turn down the disclosure triangle and see the individual layers listed there.

Now, you can actually create subgroups as well. A lot of people don't realize that...
