Adding Color to Layer Tiles

Sometimes you can create so many layers that it can be difficult to find one particular one when you are quickly scrolling the tiles up and down. Although this may not be the case very often when you manipulate images, it soon becomes the norm when you design interfaces that contain, for example, buttons with text overlay and each button having a normal, over, and down state. For this kind of work, organizing the layers into groups is essential. However, you can speed up your workflow by colorizing layers and thereby making it easier to find them in the palette. To do so, Right-click (Windows), Ctrl-click (Mac OS) on the visibility icon and select a preset color from the pop-up menu (Figure 3-30).
