Chapter 12. Working with Layer Styles > Moving Existing Layer Styles

Moving Existing Layer Styles

Once a layer style is applied to a layer, it can be moved to other layers, or into another document. This kind of flexibility and control lets you create specific layer styles and then apply them effortlessly to other layers or move them into other documents. In most cases it would make sense to save the style in the Styles palette. However, there are those times when you will only use the style once or twice. In that instance, a quick drag and drop is the most efficient way.

Move Existing Layer Styles

Select the Layers palette.

Click a layer that contains a layer style.

Click the triangle button to expand the grouped layer styles.

Drag the grouped layer over another layer. In turn, Photoshop makes a copy of all the styles and applies them to the new layer.
