Whenever I am trying to move a specific layer with the move tool, I end up moving the object that the cursor is touching! This is irritating me a lot. What should I do?
I guess you would have checked on "Auto-Select" option in the options bar of the Move Tool. Check that off and you would be fine. I recommend holding Ctrl or Command key to toggle it on or off. This way whenever you need auto select then you have it just holding Ctrl or Command key!
