Repositioning Layer Stacking Order in Photoshop « Julieanne Kost's Blog

Repositioning Layer Stacking Order in Photoshop « Julieanne Kost's Blog | Photo Editing Software and Applications | Scoop.it

Dragging in the Layers panel to reposition a layer below a Layer Group can give different results than expected. In the example below, dragging and dropping the texture layer below the Cactus Layer Group, results in the texture layer being added to the Layer Group (inside of it, instead of below it).
