Adding New Layers in Photoshop #TopTip

Into animation? Here's a #toptip from the studio via our Art Lead Seán Forsyth - this one's for Photoshop users.

Seán Forsyth: When you click the “Create a new layer” icon in in Photoshop, by default it will add a new layer above the existing active layer (i.e whichever one you currently have selected).

However, if you hold Ctrl while you click that new layer icon, it will add the new layer below the currently active layer.
