Layer Styles Across all Layers?
on Jul 30, 2009 at 5:52:48 am

Hi everyone.
I'm having some unknown trouble with Photoshop. When I set a layer style for instance a drop shadow on my top layer, all my other layers seem to receive a drop shadow as well even though it's not listed in their layer styales. The other thing is I have a few layers that have inner shadows. When I change the angle on one of them, all my layers with inner shadows change! Is there some way to turn off so I can change them individually???

Thanks,
James Ives

The problem you are experiencing with the angle of light changing, is that you must have the 'global light' box ticked in the layer styles dialogue box. This function is so that you can sync light direction for drop shadows etc across all effects and layers in the document. If you want each one to be different, un-tick this box.

Ok. I hope that's it because it's driving my crazy! The other strange thing is I have 4 layers that have clipping masks. When I release the mask on one of them the other 3 relase as well!
