You’ve got multiple images you want to combine into 1 Photoshop file and you want each image to be on its own layer, at the START of your sesh. Adobe Photoshop ships with a program to manage your photo’s and doc’s called Adobe Bridge that can help out in these situations!
I was ALL geared up to do a post on some technique for Compositing photo’s but stopped at chapter 1. This tip was TOO COOL for me to pass up. Plus “Load Files into Photoshop Layers…” is a feature that, before I knew it existed, I would complain to myself “Why doesn’t Adobe get it together and allow you to do this?” The problem was, I didn’t know the program like I thought I did =D “Never Stop Learning”
Instead of opening up all of your files then bringing them into a document, 1 at a time, I can use Adobe Bridge to do it all at once for me. Above you can see how to access “Load Files into Photoshop Layers…”. Just make sure you select all of the images you plan to use. I used 3 JPEGs that I shot on different cameras, a PSD with his info from a previous project, and a JPEG I found on Google =D
This is what it looks like straight from Bridge without any additional clicks and I’m ready to get to work. AWESOME!!! Oh and check out the PSD of the text layer. It came it as it’s own layer and I was still able to edit it.
