    Directly Selecting Layers without having "Auto-select" ticked.

    • Cmd + Click = What I call "partial Auto Select". If there are no groups, it selects the object under your cursor, however as mentioned above if there are groups, it selects the group that object is associated with.

    But...

    • Ctrl + Opt + Cmd + Click = "Full Auto Select" which actually works like ticking the "auto select" tickbox. This means that you can select the individual object even if it's within a group. Obviously, the cursor needs a clear shot at the layer...

    Also..

    Adding "Shift" into the mix allows you to add and remove multiple layers into your selection. Awesome for cleaning up those layers!

    This is one of my all-time favourites that I stumbled upon.

      This is one I posted on the Photoshop Secrets tumblr mentioned in an earlier post. Thought it was worth sharing... It's a huge time-saver and file-cleaner.

      I just figured out that you can change the behaviour of what you call partial Auto Select - whether it selects the group or object - by changing it in the drop down (http://cl.ly/Mtsj). It also works if you don't have the Auto-Select-Box ticked.
