Hi guys! Thanks for the tutorial. I'm proud to say that I knew 99% of it, only one or two «tricks» that in Portuguese keyboards don't work due to keys positions. Well, even those I knew a few... lucky me, ahahah!

Cheers from Portugal!

Thanks for the help! That was just what I was needing. I was trying to get a photoshop image ready for a Spanish page for my website, and I had hundreds of little "dots" that I was needing to select and space-out properly, and your advice will save me lots of time from now on!

Select the layer you wish to have left on. Then, press and hold Alt (Option for Mac) and click the eye icon for that layer. All of the other layers will turn off besides your selected layer. However this will only work for Photoshop CS2 or higher. Alternately, you can select all of the layers you want turned off and then go to Layer > Hide Layers. It's also a good idea to group your layers if you have a ton of them. Just click the little folder icon in the layers palette and drag your layers into the new folder. This way you can show/hide multiple layers just by clicking their corresponding folder.

Photoshop layers are like tracing sheets. You can see through transparent areas of a layer to the layers underneath. You move a layer to position the content material at the layer, like sliding a tracing sheet in a stack. You can also change the opacity of a layer to make content material in part transparent.
