Quickly locate a layer in Photoshop

As a web designer or freelance web developer you will often have to work with PSD files with hundreds of layers. What’s annoying is when you just want one particular layer and can’t find it because its lost somewhere in the list.

Lucky there is a quick way to locate a layer without having to trawl through all the layers. Just make sure you have the Move Tool selected (Top in the list on the left-hand side) and hold “cmd/ctrl + click” on the area where the layer is that you want to isolate.

Photoshop will now highlight this layer for you in the layers list!

This has saved me so much time in the past but its not complicated. I hope it help you guys out!
