Photoshop :: Selecting A Layer (Marching Ants) Via The Layer Palette

Apr 24, 2006

I used to be able to select a layer (getting the Marching ants of a layer on a image) via the Layers palette (I think I used to press ctrl + mouse-click) but now, in Photoshop CS2, I can't get it to work.


Photoshop :: Marching Ants Not Marching

Feb 26, 2009

Photoshop CS4 Extended, Win XP SP3 - all updates / 4 gig ram / Core2 duo quad 2.4 / Invidia 8800 GTS with latest driver and no brush problems / GL drawing enabled.

For some reason, my marching ants are not marching when I made a selection. the selction is good and can be filled, masked or invereted, but the ants aren't marching. Anyone have a clue as to why?

Photoshop :: CS6 - Selection Tools - Getting Rectangles Of Marching Ants?

Nov 30, 2013

I am having trouble in CS6 with selecting a portion of my photo, with any of the tools- quick-selection, lasso or magnetic lasso.  

What happens is that once I have completed my selection, I get strange rectangles of 'marching ants' throughout my selection.  These show up as different colours on the layer mask as well.  When I first used quick selection it worked properly.

Photoshop :: Difference Between Selecting Your Layer And Clicking Add Layer Mask

Apr 6, 2008

Is there a difference between selecting your layer and clicking Add Layer Mask Icon versus having that layer selected, hold down ctrl and select Add Layer Mask Icon?

Also regarding working in Lightroom, if I modify a jpeg, select another image from filmstrip to work on and then go back to the first image for more work, are those actions degrading image even though I never physically save and close.

Photoshop :: How To Select Shape On Layer In Layer Palette?

How can I select a shape on a layer in PSD in the layers palette?

In my past version of PSD, I was able to simply click on the Layer and hold either select or control to have marching ants go around my image - but with CS2 I am not able to do that.

Photoshop :: Selecting Highlighted (not Top) Layer

Sep 21, 2012

Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere.  If I have a psd file with 10 layers, sometimes I want to quickly move an element around but, regardless of what layer I'm working on, or which layer is selected, my "selection tool" will grab whatever layer is the top one, or the whole "group" is the layer is in one, instead.  So, usually, I have to reorder my layers to make the adjustment and then reorder them again.

Photoshop :: Selecting Layer Visibility

Sep 11, 2013

In <CS6, you could click down on the eye-icon in front of a layer, move out of the layer tab group, move up a couple of layers, and then go back in, to deselect that layer too.
In CC, when you do this, it'll deselect all the layers in between as well. I'm sure this is working as intended, but it was a ridiculously useful "bug" (feature!) when it wasn't working this way.
Use-case: to instantly switch between one set of layers and the other. I know there are other options to do this with, but there's just no real reason to "remove this feature" (correct this bug?) because you already *had* the option of deselecting everything you move over in the first place.

Photoshop :: Selecting Stuff On A Layer On A Mac

Feb 16, 2009

I'm used to photoshop on a PC, and on them ( at least the versions older than CS3 ) if you want to make a selection of something on a layer you just go cntrl click.

But on a mac I'm told you need to select that layer then go select all then use the magic wand tool, which probably won't be 100% accurate.

Photoshop :: Selecting Layer Outlines

Oct 10, 2007

In photoshop seven when you clicked on a layer and pressed i think it was control.. it automatically selects the layer outline. For example if you rasterised some text, and then clicked in this way it will select the outline making it easy for you to put a stroke on it, or to put a gradient or whatever u wished but applying only to the relevant area on that layer not the full canvas space.

This was a simple yet so useful thing and for some reason it does not work in cs3 (also could not find it in cs2). Im sure this function must be there with a different method?

I know you can use those magic lasso things but its much less efficient, takes longer and less accurate than this way...

Photoshop :: Layer Thumbnails In Palette

May 14, 2003

I run two different PC's w/ PS 7.

On one, in the Layers palette, next to the "eye" that turns layers on and off, a thumbnail image shows for each layer making it very easy to identify the layer you are working on.

On my other PC, the thumbnail is not there.

What setting must I change? How do I turn that thumbnail on?
