Select a layer quickly with this shortcut (Photoshop CS6/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)Image editing with multiple layers presents some navigational challenges. Sometimes you select the wrong layer, or sometimes you simply want to cycle through the layers panel selecting different layers. It’s easy to select different layers with the keyboard instead of the mouse, saving yourself some time and aggravation. First, see what layer you have selected in the Layers panel. To select the layer above, press [option][ ] ]([Alt][ ] ] in Windows). To select the layer below, press [option][ [ ]([Alt][ [ ] in Windows). For either direction, if you continue pressing the bracket key while holding the modifier, Photoshop will cycle through the layers.
