Using CS4, I want to keep a logo (rasterized) with its caption (text) on the SAME LAYER.... I know I can LINK the 2 layers, so if one moves the other moves too, but how do I combine them without rasterizing the text?
I'm creating my own website (showing my artwork) using PS, creating layered files that will be later used by my HTML guy. I want to keep the text as text, so each artwork keeps its own "caption"... But thanks for the info, at least I know the limits here.
Yes, but the File Info applies to the whole page, not specific layer (artwork). Also, from what I learn, Google now doesn't like keywords "hidden" as Meta, they expect those words to appear as part of the visible text.... No more cheating, I guess....
Is there a reason that grouping them doesn't do what you want? A layer group is much more powerful than linked layers, since you can treat both layers as one (such as moving, applying opacity, blend modes, a mask, and more to the whole group at once).
Grouping you mean shift-select both? Of course, but my idea is to send the layered file to my HTML guy, so that each layer that has artwork will have its own caption, left as text. Linking the 2 layers is the closest to what I want, but it's still not one single layer...
No, not just shift-selecting. You may want to learn about layer groups. Select two or more layers and choose Layer > Group Layers, and they will appear in the Layers panel inside a folder, just like organizing files within a folder on your computer desktop. When you do that, you can treat the folder (group) as a single entity. And yet, just like files inside folders on the desktop, the contents inside the layer group are still separate layers.
Linking layers is the way it used to be done years ago, but since Photoshop added layer groups those are much more useful now, and it sounds like it's what you might want.
I think your post was read, but the value of grouping wasn't recognized at that time. That's why I jumped in and asked why your grouping suggestion wasn't the answer, and it was only because Amikoe wasn't aware of how useful grouping is. I do notice that a lot of people who are used to older versions of Photoshop gravitate to linking and don't know about grouping. That was the case here.
