Using Layer Styles

You can quickly add three-dimensional effects and realism to raster and vector image layers by applying a layer style. Choose from a large variety of layer styles in the Preset Library or create one of your own. You can even modify existing or saved layer styles to create a look that's just right for your project, and you can save the customized style as a preset in your library. You can trade and email custom layer style preset libraries to colleagues and clients. Saved Photoshop files retain the applied style effect on any layer.

Layer style effects range from simple drop shadows and embossed edges to transparent glass and textured 3D patterns. The effects remain with the layer even while you're editing—whether it's a type layer, a vector shape, or a paint layer. Not all effects can be applied to background layers, locked layers, or layer sets.
