Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video The searchable Layers panel, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
Photoshop CS6 features a new ability to filter layers.…Now when I say filter, I don't mean apply filters from the Filter menu.…I mean determine which layers you see and which you don't here inside the Layers…panel, which makes it easier to navigate through extremely complex images.…This image is a case in point.…Notice that it's one of those standard compositions that contains zillions upon…zillions of layers, making it very difficult to navigate what's what.…However, let's say what I want to be able to see is just the adjustment layers…inside of this image.…
Then I'd go up here to the top left corner of the Layers panel, I'd make sure…that Kind is selected in this popup menu, and then I'd move to the second icon…in, Filter for adjustment layers, and click on it, and now I'm just seeing the…adjustment layers inside the image.…And notice that the groups have disappeared as well.…I want to make that point perfectly clear.…I'm going to go ahead and turn off that icon by clicking on it once again.…

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.
