Easily assign layer color labels in Photoshop Apps
I've started coloring my layers in Photoshop much more since I discovered this shortcut. Right-click on the visibility icon (eye) in the layers palette to get a menu that will let you assign label colors to the layer. It's quick and easy! "Show/Hide all other layers" is also in that contextual menu, and can also be invoked by option-clicking the eye icon.

[Editor's note: Unfortunately, I can't test this one as I have only the "Elements" version of Photoshop, and there are no color layer labels available.]

In Photoshop 6 though, you control/right click the thumbnail to get layer properties.

I have a slight correction to Soosy's post. Option-clicking on the Eye icon in Photoshop 7 toggles the show/hide all layers. Control-clicking on the Eye icon will bring up the Layer Properties menu, from which you can toggle the layer (or layer set) color.
