How to move an item from a document to another

1 minute, 5 seconds

This guide will show how to move or duplicate an isolated item from a scene creator to a scene or new document in Photoshop, using two different methods.

Duplicate Method (recommended)

Duplicate Group Adobe Photoshop
Duplicate Group Adobe Photoshop
  1. In Photoshop, create a new document or use a blank scene (included in most Custom Scene products)
  2. Open a pack of isolated or a premade scene
  3. From the layer panel select an item, right-click > Duplicate Group…
  4. Select the document from step 1 as a destination

Note: I highly recommend to use this method because it will duplicate the item to the same location. Perfect when you want to keep the same look across all your scenes.

Drag & Drop Method

 

  1. In Photoshop, create a new document or use a blank scene (included in most of Custom Scene products)
  2. Open a pack of isolated or a premade scene
  3. Select the Move Tool (V)* and click an item from the document and Drag it to the document (step 1)
  4. Drop it on the document

*Recommended settings: Enable Auto-select / Select Group / Enable Show Transform Controls

Tip: CTRL + Click (CMD + Click) to select several items
