While many of the images you create or edit in Photoshop CS6 will be unique.

there are times when you’ll have two different versions of the same image or two images that share a common element.

If that element is included as its own layer in a Photoshop image and has been fine-tuned extensively, the prospect of having to fine-tune that layer again on another image could be a source of concern.

If you’ve ever tried to learn how to copy a layer from one image to another in Photoshop CS6, you know how difficult it can be.

Fortunately, Adobe has included a method for performing this action, which eliminates the need to recreate a document.

Copying a Layer Between Images in Photoshop CS6

The beauty of this technique is that it will completely copy the layer, including all styles.

It will not rasterize everything into a single image, allowing you to make any minor changes to the second image as needed.

1. opening the Photoshop

Begin by opening the Photoshop file that contains the layer that you want to copy.

Step 2.

To paste the copied layer into a second Photoshop image, open it. Both images should now be open in Photoshop in separate tabs, as shown below.



 Click the drop-down menu to the right of Document, then choose the image to which you want to paste the copied layer.


Step 4 :


Type a name for the duplicate layer in the Duplicate Layer dialog box, choose a destination document for the layer, and then click OK: 

To duplicate the layer in an existing image, choose a filename from the Document pop‑up menu.

To create a new document for the layer, choose New from the Document menu, and enter a name for the new file. An image created by duplicating a layer has no background.
