Hi all,

Does anyone know of a way to merge multiple layers in photoshop?

Yep. On the Layers palette, just click the second column on each layer (next to the "eye" that turns visibility on and off) for each layer you want to merge together. You should see a little chain link appear. Once you choose all the layers you want to merge, then go up to the top menu of Photoshop and choose Layer > Merge Linked.

Or if you just have say 2 layers together (one above the other) on the Layers palette you want to merge, click the top one and choose Layers > Merge Down.

You could also use the key combination: CTRL + e ( after you've selected the layers you want to merge ofcourse )
