When you name a layer, you can also assign it a color. By assigning similar layers or groups of layers the same color, you can color-code your Layers palette and make it even easier to manage.
After naming a layer, the new name appears in the Layers palette. Whether or not the entire name is displayed in the Layers palette at once depends on the width of the Layers palette window and the length of the layer name. If you can't see the entire name of a particular layer, you can move your cursor over the layer name and leave it there for a few seconds. If there's enough room, Photoshop tries to show you the entire layer name in a tool tip.
