The Merge Down option lets you merge one selected layer into the layer directly below it in the layer stacking order. Merged layers take on the characteristics of the layer into which they are being merged. For example, if you merge one layer into another that uses the Darken blending mode, the two merged layers will both use Darken. Or, if you merge a layer into the Background layer, the merged layer becomes a part of the Background. The Merge Visible option enables you to merge all of the layers that have the Show option enabled with just one click.

Merge Down

1. Select the Layers panel.

2. Select the layers you want to merge.

3. Click the Layers Options button, and then click Merge Down (for single selection) or Merge Layers (for multiple selection).

The selected layers merge into the next layer down. When you use the Merge Down command, the top layer will take on the name and characteristics of the bottom layer.

Merge Visible
