For any European keyboard users who can't use the Alt/Opt + [ / ] (or the other variations), I've made an Action Set which includes the following:

  • Select Forward Layer (Alt + ])
  • Select Backward Layer (Alt + [)
  • Add Forward Layer (Alt + Shift + ])
  • Add Backward Layer (Alt + Shift + [)
  • Move Forward Layer (Ctrl + ])
  • Move Backward Layer (Ctrl + [)

Instructions:

  1. Download Move One Layer.atn.zip
  2. Extract the zip folder's contents (Move One Layer.atn) to Photoshop's *Actions folder
  3. Load the ATN file (see image below)
  4. Set keyboard shortcuts for each Action in the set, or;
  5. For use within an Action of your own:

  • Expand the appropriate Action's contents and duplicate the step
  • Drag the duplicate step to the correct position within your own Action.

*Actions folder

  • Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop [version]\Presets\Actions
  • Macintosh: ~Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Presets/Actions

Hope this helps!
