Copy merged function?


Recommended Posts

Quick question. Is there a sort of "copy merged" function or an easy to use alternative? Sometimes I have a multi layer image and I wish to copy what I see (all layers), and not just one single layer. So far I had to merge down the entire image, copy the selection and undo the merge, but that's a bit of a roundabout way of doing things.

Am I overlooking something or is this the only way to do it? Is a copy merged function a viable addition then?

what about Ctrl+Shift+F, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Z?

(Flatten, Copy, Undo) ?

That's what I do and eventually:

Ctrl+Shift+F, Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Shift+N, Ctrl+V

(Flatten, Select all, Copy, Undo select, Undo flatten, add a layer, paste)

This lets you have a full flattened image and you keep the detailled layers.

Before that I made a screenshot, add a layer, paste, move to adjust, and unselect...Keyboard is more 'automatic' ;)

I'd actually second Copy Merged (or Copy Visible, depending upon which program you're using).

Another thing I think would be cool is a Sample Merged option for the Eyedropper. With that enabled, the eyedropper would select from the final composed image seen on the screen, instead of the color on that layer.

I'll second that.

And, if no one's counting, I'll third that!

That would be incredibly handy!
