Now, while you may initially revel in the fact that Photoshop allows you to select …multiple shapes across multiple layers. You're going to find it very frustrating …as well, especially when working inside complex documents because there are no …limitations anymore when working with the arrow tools, which is why Photoshop also …includes a Layer Isolation Mode. So that you can constrain your modifications. …I'm going to go ahead and zoom in on this detail right here, this hand. …What I want to do here. Notice that the bottom of his two hands …doesn't match its shadow. It needs to come down a little bit.…
So I'll go ahead and switch from the black arrow tool to the white arrow tool, …which Photoshop calls the Direct Selection Tool. …And then I'll marquee this bottom hand like so and that ends up selecting all …kinds of path outlines across the various layers. …Obviously this is not what I want. I'm going to go ahead and switch back to …the path selection tool, click off the path to deselect them. …
Note: Adobe Creative Cloud is updated on a regular basis. We will add more tutorials as features are added or changed, so check back often.
