Photoshop CS 6 – Multiple shapes, same layer, different colors

Does anyone how I can change the color of a single shape, that is in the same layer of another shape, in Photoshop CS 6? The default behavior of changing colors seems to change the color of all shapes in that layer, as opposed to the selected shape only!

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!


If by “shapes” you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no.

It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked – but it always takes additional layers.
