Layer Effects – transfer from one layer to the next.

Good to know tip.
Some people may know this – but it is very useful for those who don’t.

Using Photoshop cs2
Q: How do I copy blending option effects (layer style) from one layer to the next?
A: Simply place your cursor over the effect layer – Hold down on alt and than drag the effects to the layer where you want the effects to be added. If you do not hold down on both alt and shift than your effect will simply be replaced and not multiplied.


  1. Ah, so that’s the trick. I did this once by accident and then couldn’t figure it out again, it would just move the effects. Thanks!
