You give us 5 colours, plus grey and "no colour" to label layers. This isn't good enough. I don't want to have to read the label I've named on each layer. I want to assign a colour of my choosing to fit the way I want to organise things. Why can you not allow any colour to be assigned from the palette menu? There are millions of colours there, but you only give us 5 to assign to layers. I need more!
...And by the way, instead of [cursing removed by moderator] around with 3D & web nonsense, why don't you take another look at the core aspect of the program? Why can't we warp more than one layer at a time? Why does Liquify need a separate window, instead of doing the business within the layer relative to any other layer we can see. Come on you guys, this hasn't changed for 15 years!
@davids84228917 Why can't we warp more than one layer at a time?
To clarify: although you can't use Transform > Warp on multiple layers, it should be noted that the "Warp Text" feature works on multiple Type layers and always has. You didn't specify which Warp.
Yes...I know that you can't use Transform > Warp on multiple layers. I'm not interested in text. Just images. All I'm trying to suggest is that this should be possible by now. This hasn't changed in the 18 years that this has been available. It should be an improved feature. I don't understand whay any other PS user would solicit kickback.
What sort of warp do you want to apply? If it could be done with Liquify for instance, then you can save the mesh and apply to other layers. You can still warp multiple layers by making them a Smart Object, and that seems like the safest aproach anyway as you keep the option to edit the individual layers. Otherwize why wouldn't you simply merge the layers you want to warp.
If you could be more specific about what you want to achieve, then maybe we can come up with solutions or workarounds.
Regards colour coding layers, its a great feature that most of us use all the time, but we have other ways to organise things like groups, Smart Objects, and linked layers. There have been times when I would have liked more colour options like when moving multiple objects independently in frame animations. It can be tricky linking the right layers to the right frames, but starting again with red when you get to violet. Those six levels of separation mean I only have to be in the right ball park to select the matching layers.
Another possible solution would be a bulk layer renaming extension. The Adobe one stopped working several updates back, but there is an alternative by Yu-KATO. It's something I have been intending to track down for ages, so I have taken this opertunity, and contacted Yu KATO and asked if his extension still works with current Photoshop versions.
Thanks Jane. Not very constructive though I have to say. We all know that people at Adobe read these. However, as optimistic as I was, your link just takes me to the same place I was in the first place when I posted this.
Hey... Instead of messing around with Photoshop, adding 3D that can be better done with other software, or more web based stuff, how about addressing the core program? We should be able to warp more than one layer at once with a selection and multiple layers chosen. We also don't need a separate window opened when we liquify something. It should be able to be carried out within the layer and with other layers visible while we liquify. Come on guys, we've moved on since 15 years ago!
Christ...There's a real issue here, otherwise I wouldn't be posting it. Why would you want to dismiss it with such a comment?
As well as raising feature requests at the site given above.
"We should be able to warp more than one layer at once with a selection and multiple layers chosen"
In the meantime you can use smart objects
"We also don't need a separate window opened when we liquify something. It should be able to be carried out within the layer and with other layers visible while we liquify."
To show other layers in the liquify workspace click on "Show Backdrop"
I know this already.You're missing the point though, sorry to say. A separate window shouldn't have to be opened. It should be possible ideally within the layer. Are you working for Adobe?
No we do not work for Adobe we are volunteer Photoshop users. As pointed out by Trevor, you can raise feature requests at the link below , where they will be seen by Adobe staff.
Smart Objects? Erm, no. That doesn't work I'm afraid. Before aguing it might be worth understanding what I'm trying to do with the software. Nothing less that what should be inuative.
