When working on a project, having the ability to select multiple layers is essential for making cohesive edits. This feature available in all sections of the app so open the Photo Editor, Graphic Designer, or Collage Maker to get started.
Step 1: Either click + drag with your mouse over the items you want to select or hold down the Command/Control key while you click on each layer item (text, images, & graphics). You’ll see each one become highlighted, with a blue dashed box around all of the items you’ve selected. To select all layers, use the keyboard shortcut Command/Ctrl + A. Hold Ctrl/Cmd and Click layer item(s) to add or remove the item from the current group selection.
Pro Tip: Use the lock option in the Layers and Groups tab to lock a layer in place to prevent it from moving or being edited. Additionally use the hide option to hide/toggle layers on the canvas.
Step 2: To resize these items as a group, click and drag the blue circles around your group to make them smaller or larger. You can also use the taller blue circle at the top of the group to rotate these items all at once.
Pro Tip: When rotating your group selection, hold the shift key to snap your group in 15 degree increments.
Step 3: Right-click on your group selection to bring up your alignment options. This allows you to quickly align all of your selected items to a specific area of your image.
Step 4: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
