Photoshop needs the ability to add comments to the layer.

Currently, in Photoshop, there is no function to add comments directly to a layer, and note function cannot be embedded in a layer. So it is very difficult to give individual explanations for the layers. Please add comment function to the layer in Photoshop.

Photoshop: Highlight Layers in Document As Rolled Over in Layers Palette
