Masking Multiple Layers using Layer Groups

Adobe Photoshop

Not only are Layer Groups great for organizing your layers, they can also be used to mask the contents of multiple layers at one time. With the Layer Group targeted in the Layers panel, click the Add Layer Mask icon from the bottom of the Layers panel. Paint in the mask to control the visibility of all layers within the Layer Group.

This shortcut also works with vector masks (and a combination of both vector and raster) as shown below.
