Photoshop: Ability to turn off multiple layers at once

When i have a bunch of layers selected(via CMD+click) i often want to shut them off at once - i have to go an click each layers "eye" to do so.

Why can this not be done to all layers selected?
It works with Opacity and Fill - It would be a nice small change :)

Cheers.

PS:
Right now i often make a group of the selected layers and shut it off just to spare the clicks :)

Layer>Hide Layers

You can assign a keyboard shortcut to the command using Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts...

I agree with you. I have many layers. I often use Alt + Click to display a single layer and hide others, then I add a new layer, after that I can't resume the layer visibility status. I have to click the eye one by one to turn on my layers.

Try something like this:

Select the layers, then right click on the "eye" and choose Hide this layer
(should turn off the visibility of only the selected layers)



To turn the visibility on for the selected layers, right click on the "eye" and
choose Show this layer.



I'm not aware of a keyboard shortcut for this, but that would be nice to have.

Thanks also for the tip

BUT

why not implement the same functionality as in After Effects and spare the right clicking procedure and have consistent behavior throughout the suite?

(in my opinion AFX workflow has many things nailed right in its workflow/ui design)

Thank you in advance.

There is a better way to do this guys
#1 with V Tool (Move Tool) right click and select the layer you want
#2 with M Tool (Marquee Tool) select the area of that layer (it can be larger than the layer itself so don't worry about being exact)
#3 Hold the Option Key and Turn off the eye of the layer you want

This will turn off EVERY LAYER but the one you need

GOOD LUCK!!! Let me know how it works out for you guys

Follow Julianne Kost's suggestion:

- Hit the V key to select the Move Tool
- Hit 00 (zero, zero) in rapid succession

At first link all the layer you want to hide at once, and color mark that with a similar color. So later one when you decide to hide those layer, just select one of the liked layers, then go to Layer>select linked layers, all the linked layers will be selected. now right click on the eye icon of one of the selected layer and choose the first option (hide selected layers). I hope you find this helpful.
