Copy layer stylesIvan | Fri, 2004-10-15 16:53
Here is a handy time saving tip I found very useful within my own work flow. Many times when I am working I create elements all on separate layers. Well then I decide much later on that I want to apply a style to those layers. Normally, you may just recreate the effect over and over again on each layer individually. What if you have 20 layers with 4 or 5 layer effects?! Thats more work than what I am up for. Fortunately Photoshop has an easy way to apply a style to multiple layers all at once.
First link all the layers that you want to effect. Then select from the menu Layer/ Layer Styles/ Copy Layer Style. Then go back to the same menu and select Layer/ Layer Styles/ Paste Layer Style to Linked.
You can also access these functions by CTRL-Clicking the layer itself. Now all your layers have the same effects applied to them in a mater of seconds.
Thanks Mark Aplet for the tip.
