Specifying Palette Thumbnails, Icons, and Masks

You now have the choice of viewing dynamically changing thumbnails or old-style thumbnails for layers, composite thumbnails for layer groups, and generic icons for adjustment layers. To specify your preference, open the Layers Palette Options dialog box from the Layers palette menu and then make your choice (Figure 3-31). Here's what happens when you select an option:

■ If you select Layer Bounds under Thumbnail Contents, the thumbnail will grow dynamically as you move content out of the document bounds.

■ If you select Entire Document, the thumbnail will show the content within the document bounds.

■ If you select Show Group Thumbnails, a thumbnail made from a composite of the layers in a group will be displayed; otherwise, a generic group icon will be used to identify the group.

By default, a reveal-all mask is added each time you create an adjustment layer, ready for you to work on should you need it. If you prefer not to have the mask added automatically, you can deselect Use Default Masks on Adjustments in the Layers Palette Options dialog box.
