Out of This World Photoshop Tip!
Here is a cool little tip that I got from Scott Kelby a couple weeks ago. I feel I have to share this because it’s one of those tips that is so very simple and so very intuitive that you will kick yourself for not knowing this one already. Some of you may and that’s cool. Anyway, to unlock the Background layer in Photoshop you would have had to go into the Layers panel and choose New Layer from Background or just double-click it and rename it if desired. Well did you know that you can simply grab the padlock icon on the layer and simply drag it to the trash. Voila!!! Layer is now unlocked!! Is that not cool?
Great tip! Thanks!
. . . or Holding the Alt/Option key and double clicking just changes it to “Layer 0 “
Amazing! Brilliant! Thank you!
Like Corey didn’t know that one already? He’s a genius just playing kowtow to the higher authority. I can see it now,
Hey Corey I got a li’l trick for you.
Really? What’s that?
I know how to unlock a background by dragging the padlock icon to the trash. WOW! Holy! Is that not cool? (Thinking to himself – Duh you really think I didn’t know this already Scott?) Thanks Scott gotta share this with the folks! 😉
Corey… Sorry this is off topic, but I just had to post a comment about your 3-D butterfly tutorial over on the NAPP site. It is killer! Those who do not belong to NAPP are definitely missing some good tips.
I never knew! Thanks!
wow!!! great tip! did you help invent the photoshop? putang ina grabe ang lupet!! parang 1+1 lang…did you know that ctrl+ alt + del can close it..Amazing!
That’s one of the most simple and useful PS tips I’ve ever heard of! Thanks
awesome!!! jejejeje, tks!
damn!!! how the hell did we not know this!!?!?? :O :O :O freakin man! thanks for sharing!
i want a adobe photoshop software
Great tip! Thanks for passing it on.
alt+doubleclick gives the same result
Yeah, but double click/return is easier than drag/drop. At least just as easy.
Nope. I’m right. Double click return is faster. At least with a laptop (I can’t believe I’m even posting anything here much less twice. Sorry. Nice tip.)
Such a simple tip, but saves just that extra couple of seconds! Thanks.
