There are a number of ways to duplicate a layer in Photoshop, so let’s try to cover as many as we can.
To start with, you can drag a layer onto a Create New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. But there are many more ways of doing it.
If you like using menu, then:
- Layer > Duplicate Layer… or
- Layer > New > Layer via Copy
Or you could use the Layers panel menu and choose Duplicate… as shown below:
If you like using keyboard shortcuts (like I do), you can press Ctrl+J on Windows or Cmd+J on Mac.
And, you can also right-click on the layer and choose Duplicate Layer…
I hope it helps. If you have thoughts on that, let me know by posting a comment.
Have a great day and see you tomorrow!
