Let's say I have to images open in Photoshop CS4 / Mac (IMG-A and IMG-B. I am making some adjustment layer in IMG-A and I want to be able to copy it to IMG-B. How do I do that?
If you go to Window menu/Arrange/"Float all in Windows":
the images will no longer in Tabs, you will be able to drag-copy the layers between the different images.

All you need to do is drag the actual adjustment layer from one image to the other. Simple as that.

Well, that's what I used to do in Windows. However, in Mac OS X this
is not working.

I have Photoshop CS4 and Mac OS X 10.5.6

11 Years later.

I found that you can't move adjustment layers if one is in CMYK and one is in RGB.

Considering that RGB adjustments don't apply in CMYK and vice versa - just think about it once more and I'm sure you understand why.

I mean I have all images each in it's own tab. I am dragging the adjustment layer to the tab of the target image but nothing happens.

What do I do wrong?
