Introduction

Layer styles are the very definition of creativity and control when using Adobe Photoshop. Using styles, such as Bevel and Emboss or Drop Shadow, you can move from two-dimensional into the world of three-dimensional. You can effortlessly change the look of a document with Gradient Overlay, Color Overlay, and Pattern Overlay, and you can do it all without ever changing the original image. That means you can apply a style to an image, and at any time in the creative process, change your mind. This level of control gives you the power you need to take your designs to the creative edge and beyond.

When you create a customized layer style, you can move that style to another layer, save the style in the Styles palette, even move the style between two open documents. That kind of flexibility gives you the ability to add consistency to your designs with a minimum of effort, and since layer styles do not change the original image, you can modify or remove the style at any time during the creative process. Not only do layer styles let you create special effects, but they give you the control you need over the image to experiment until you see exactly what you want.
