Not with the file alone, but the folder it contains:

* checkout /project, set the depth combobox to "Only this item".
* right-click on the checked-out folder, choose "repository browser".
* browse to the /project/brand2/website1/images/layout folder
* right-click on that folder, choose "update".
now the folder /layout is updated with all the intermediate folders, but
*only* that folder is actually checked out.
