Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying multiple layers at a time, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
There's a category of changes that Adobe calls JDI. That is Just Do It, a bunch…of features that users have been asking for for years now.…And in this movie, I'm going to you all kinds of things that you can now do to…multiple layers at a time.…For example, you can now change the blend mode of multiple layers at once.…So let's say I want to take all the layers that are set to the Overlay mode and…change them to let's say Soft Light just to see how they look.…So I'll go ahead and change this Kind option to mode and then I'll set the mode…to Overlay and here are all my Overlay layers.…
Now I'll go up to the Select menu and choose All layers. Notice it has a…keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+Alt+A or Command+Option+A on the Mac. And now I'll…drop down to the second Blend mode option, the one that allows me to change the…blend mode of the selected layers.…I'll switch it from Overlay to Soft Light.…Now you might have seen a slight change to the image on screen;…this is before, and this is after.…Now, we lose all our layers because none of the layers are any longer set to Overlay.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
