Designing layers in easy but selecting a certain object from hordes of layers is difficult. If you want to select the layer of specific object, use the move tool by pressing 'V' and hold down the 'Ctrl' Key. Now click on your desired element and the layer will be selected.

Color Sampling

Colors in Photoshop can be chosen via two ways. You can use eye dropper tool and drag the icon to select the color anywhere from the screen or get the colors from any inspiring site to the Photoshop color palette for using.

Multiple Undo
