Hiding Your other layers in Photoshop

Look­ing to hide all but one layer in Pho­to­shop?     I was about to start hid­ing numer­ous lay­ers by sin­gle click­ing them when I the thought occurred to me that there might be a key­board short­cut available.

The method is sim­ple:   Use the  > alt <  but­ton while click­ing the  eye icon of the layer you want to be visible.

The result:   All other lay­ers will dis-appear.

To Undo this (Command/CNTRL  Z wont work)  DO the same thing – >  alt click the eye icon of the  same layer.   All your lay­ers should re-appear.

I hope this Pho­to­shop tip helps you in any of your graphic design endeavors.

 Hiding Your other layers in Photoshop I’ve started design­ing web­sites while at Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton dur­ing my first Pho­to­shop 3.1 expe­ri­ence in 1996 on a Mac­in­tosh com­puter. I built my own com­put­ers (Win­dows PCs) with the help of a friend and have been dig­i­tally involved ever since. I am both Win­dows and PC lit­er­ate but grav­i­tate toward OSX. I’ve grad­u­ally got­ten back to my roots as a tac­tile artist / designer by work­ing more with tra­di­tional medi­ums like draw­ing, paint­ing, and mixed media.
