Copying multiple layers
Is there any way that I can copy multiple layers?

If I hit copy and then paste it as a new image I only get the layer I had selected.
If I merge all the layers down to one, it takes a long time because I have to merge them one at a time. Then I have to undo all those merges to the original so I can still work with its layers, just to make a copy of the image I am working on.

And sometimes I want to copy layers from an image and actually keep them as layers in whatever it is I'm copying them to, and in that case my best option to to select each layer one at a time, copy it and paste it as a new layer in the other image. And this method doesn't always leave the layers lined up properly.

So, Is there any way that I can copy multiple layers? A faster solution to either of these scenarios would be appreciated.
