how do you send multiple photos from lightroom to photoshop as layers
Lightroom CC does not have that option (yet). You can send multiple photos to Photoshop, but you will have to stack them as layers manually.
I figured that out but how do you unstack them in photoshop. Thanks
What do you mean by unstack? Photoshop places each image as a layer in a new Photoshop document.
To move multiple photos in lightroom you have to stack them or you can only send one picture at time to photoshop. I need to know how to unstack them in photoshop
There is nothing to 'unstack' in Photoshop. Photoshop doesn't even know what a Lightroom stack is. You have to send the images to Photoshop individually. Then in Photoshop you have to drag the different images on top of each other to create one document with the images as layers. Hold the shift key while you are dragging and dropping to align them.
You could select all the images in Lightroom and save full size jpegs to the desktop or a named folder.
Launch Photoshop and from the menu choose:
File >> Scripts >> Load Files into Stack
Then browse to your saved images.
PS will automatically create a single document with separate layers.
Can you share screen captures of your issue? I don't think any of us are correctly understanding your question.
You can do this from Lightroom Classic but not Lightroom.
You need LRC (lightroom classic) not Lr (lightroom). Check out your adobe cloud and type it in.
