Create Layer from Style

As you know, layer styles are very handy - at any time you can re-open style settings and update them.

In the meantime, you can't edit styles in the "regular" way. For example, how about erasing an unnecessary fragment of a shadow?

  1. In the Layers palette, select a layer with the "effect" symbol.
  2. Open the "Layers" dialog and double-click the "Create Layer from Style".

    Now the layer style appears in the palette as a separate layer named like "Style of <source layer's name>" (screenshot).

Keep in mind though that the style settings are not editable any more. Also, you can't convert the "Effect Layer" back to a layer style.
