Layer from Style

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

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

  1. In the Layers palette, select a layer with the "fx" mark.
  2. In the Effects palette, double-click the "Effect Layer" thumbnail. Now the layer style appears in the palette as a separate "Effect Layer".

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.
