Hello, everyone!

I have this problem - when selecting a section on the multi-layer picture, I would like to copy not only what is found in the actual layer, but the layers over and under it as well - that is, i.e., if you have some mechanical part, built up from multiple layers, to be able to copy them _all_ in another image. Is there any way to do that? Thank you all in advance - 100 easy points!

If you need to keep all the layers separate instead of merging them, create a layer group, put the layers you want to move into the group, and drag the group to the canvas of the image you want to move them to.

If you have a lot of layers the the easiest way to put them in a layer set (as weed mentioned) is to link the layers you want to put in the layer set then go to menu bar Layer>New>Layer Set From Linked...

But if you want to copy them all, so that they are on one layer, like J3one stated above, but you want to keep the original layers seperate, meaning that the layers will be merged onto a new layer.

1. Create a new layer
2. Link the new layer to the layers you want to merge
3. Make sure the new layer is selected.  Hold the Alt key and go to menu bar Layer>Merge Linked  you have to hold Alt key the whole time, and when you click "Layer" on the menu bar, you have to hold the left mouse button, move the mouse down to "Merge Linked" and let go of the left mouse button. Now a copy of all the layers is on the new layer.

Good Luck.

Thank you all so far, guys. I'd have to try all those at home (I am not on my home PC right now), but as soon as any of them works, you'd be given the points!

This is gonna be quite hard for me. I give weed 3/4 of the points since his/her suggestion was really what I needed, but I also give japly53 25 points since he/she gave me the hint how to make the layer set by linking the layers before that. j3one, sorry, this is not exactly what I looked for, thank you anyway!
