Is it possible to have a the magic eraser apply to ALL layers at once?

May 7Hits:0

I have a gif of characters dancing on a white background, and I want to use the magic eraser (or an equivalent selection tool) to select and clear the white background to make it transparent.

However, the gif is ~150 frames long so doing each layer individually would be tedious, and I'd like to know how to sample all layers any way. Is there a way to do this?

Answers

There is no tool in Photoshop that will let you erase different layers at once.

What you can do instead is grouping all your layers and applying a mask to the group. I would actually recommend that whenever it's possible (and by that I mean almost always!), you use masks instead of the eraser.

It works with animated gifs too:
