Adding Color to Layer Tiles

Sometimes you can create so many layers that it can be difficult to spot the one you are after while quickly scrolling the tiles up and down. Although this might not be the case very often when you manipulate images, it soon becomes the norm when you work on documents containing 40-50 layers. When you are faced with that many layers, organizing them into groups is essential. However, you can speed up your workflow by colorizing layers and thereby making it easier to find them in the Layers palette when you scroll up and down.

To colorize a layer or group, Right-click (Windows), Ctrl-click (Mac OS) on the visibility icon and select a preset color from the pop-up menu (Figure 6-7).
