Instead of the usual make selection > ⌘C(copy) > ⌘V(paste), hold down shift during the “copy’ and this little bad boy will copy all visible layers within a selection. Awesome right‽ Whatever is showing will be copied to the clipboard whether it’s on a background or transparent.

This is really handy for exporting different states of a webpage or simply for creating a flat version of something which can be handy for printing when you have a massive PSD.

Again, Awesome right‽
