Photoshop Tutorials - Linking the Layers
Linking the Layers
Layers can be physically linked and in this case they are moved, transformed, distorted together. In order to link the layers with the active layer you need to click the icon to the left from the desired layer (click the same place where the active layer has the brush symbol). The layers will get linked. You can unlink them by clicking the link symbol.
Linked layers can be blocked by selecting Lock All Linked Layers in the Layer menu. This command will bring up the window with the selection of the locking parameters.
