How to apply adjustment layers to multiple (not one, not all) layers?

I am looking to apply an adjustment layer to just three layers like so:

-  IMAGE_1
-  IMAGE_2
-  IMAGE_3
-  BG

All I can manage is to apply ADJ_LAYER_1 to either only LAYER_1 or ALL layers below.

I have tried ALT clicking on the layer-dividers but that creates clipping masks between for example IMAGE_1 AND IMAGE_2 and screws things up.

So, is it possible to clip an adjustment layer to SOME layers?


  • Put the top three layers in a layer group
  • Add your adjustment layer above the group
  • Alt-click to set the adustment layer as a clipping mask
