Dropping a layer or group merges its contents with the canvas. Once you drop a layer, you can no longer access the layer's content separately from the canvas. You can drop specific layers or you can drop all layers at once.
When you drop a layer, you can choose to create a selection based on the layer contents. If the layer has a layer mask, the mask is used to make the selection. For more information about layer masks, refer to "Working with Layer Masks" in the Help. For more information about selections, refer to "Selections" in the Help.
