As part of my regular work flow, I will recolor differnt photos of the same product (ex: stacks of folded blankets). To save time I will put all the layer adjustments into a layer group and use the layer menu>Duplicate Group to send the adjustments to the other photos (where I just then have to create new masks). But this can be up to 5 to 20 images. Using the drop down menu for each duplictaion can get tedious. There has to be a better way.

This is certainly possible using the scripting API in Photoshop. Perhaps someone in the community has already created such a script?

In the layers pallet menu is a function; duplicate layer or duplicate group. What would be helpful is if this dialog box could send the layer being duplicated to all open images instaed of having to manualy select each one through the drop down menu.Screen Shot 2022-02-10 at 6.20.34 PM.jpg
