The Links panel is displayed by clicking the Is Linked icon on any linked layer in the Layers panel.
The Links panel displays the following:
The attributes list is as follows:
|Pixel content||..the same pixels between layers that update simultaneously on editing||Making a mask share the same pixel content as another mask|
|Blending mode & ranges||..the same blend mode and tonal blending||Swapping out a multiply blend mode for a soft light blend mode en masse amongst composite images|
|Opacity & visibility||..the same opacity level and Show/Hide settings between layers||Making multiple semi-transparent text frames that update with opacity changes|
|Layer effect parameters||..the same layer effect settings (shadow, bevel, color overlays)||Multiple text captions can use a common drop shadow appearance that update if the effect is modified.|
|Adjustment parameters||..the same adjustment layer settings||Using the same white balance settings to uniformly 'warm' composited images|
|Live filter parameters||..the same live filter layer settings||Sharing uniform blurs on multiple background composited images|
|Vector shape parameters||..the shapes' appearances can be morphed||Rounded rectangles could update simultaneously if the the corner roundness is to change|
|Vector fill||..a solid or gradient fill||Consistent color-to-transparency 'tail-off' radial and linear gradients applied to composited images.|
|Vector line style||..the stroke width, color and style||Dotted lines on a travel map could change their dot pattern simultaneously.|
