Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using layer groups for organization, part of Photoshop: Creating Composites (2012).
As you start getting more and more sophisticated with composite imaging, …you'll likely find that things start to get a little bit complicated. …You'll start adding multiple image layers, multiple text layers, a variety …of different elements to create a composite images. …There are a wide range of uses for such a composite, but you want to make sure that …in that process you're staying organized. In this case, I have a relatively simple …composite image. There's really not that much going on, I …have a Background Image layer, I have a Flower layer that has been blended in …with some layer effects, and a layer mask.…
I also have some text that's been added. In fact, just two text layers so really, …just four layers all together. The background of the flower and the two …text layers and yet things have gotten pretty complicated on my Layers panel. …And in part because I have some layer effects applied and that adds to the …amount of information that's being presented. …But as we scroll down, you'll see I also have some Adjustment layers. …
