Duplicating layers

Jump to Mobile

If you've created a layer that you want to use again, use Duplicate to create a copy of the layer. If you need many multiples of a layer, you might use it in combination with merging layers‍.

Duplicating only specific content: If you are looking to duplicate only part of the content in a layer, to do this, use the Quick Selection tools,  Copy, and Paste.‍ A new layer is created for the selected, copied, and pasted content. At any point, if you want the content on the same layer as the original, you can merge the layers.
