How to open multiple images as layers in Photoshop

Photoshop CC splashDid you know there is a way to open several images in the same document as layers in Photoshop?

It’s a real timesaver if you have several renders that all need to be composited onto the same background for postwork.

It’s really easy to do:

  • open Photoshop (duh!)
  • head over to Scripts – Add Files to Stack
  • browse for several images, or choose a whole folder, or choose any open images you have
  • hit OK and let Photoshop go to work

When it’s done you’ll have all images open in the same document, stacked on top of each other in a new layer. Thanks to Julianne Kost for this valuable tip!
