There is a powerful new “mode” in Photoshop CC that can help quickly isolate layers that you currently want to select and work with on the Layers panel. To toggle the isolation mode, simply select the desired layers in the Layers panel, and choose Select > Isolate Layers or toggle the Filter switch at the top right of the Layers panel. Only the layers that are selected will be displayed in the Layers panel.
Note: Don’t forget, you can add a custom keyboard shortcut to Select > Isolate Layers to make this even easier!
