Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting applied effects, part of Learning Photoshop CS6.
Once you've applied effects there are a few things that you can do to play with …them after the fact. I'm going to select my Right Spikes …group, turn it on so I can see all my little spikes here. …And I am going to Right-click on it once it's visible, once all these little …spikes are visible, and I'm going to choose Convert To Smart Object. …And then I'm going to go to the Filter menu. I'm going to choose Distort. …And I'm going to choose Zigzag. And I'm going to leave it set at its default.…
Which is going to create these little cool wavy lines here. …And I'm going to click Okay. That's kind of fun. …And I am going to next go to the Filter menu. …And choose Blur > Gaussian Blur. And take the blur down a little bit, …maybe to about, maybe not, maybe 20. 20 or so looks good. …I'm going to go ahead and click Okay. Now, I know that I can take off the …visibility of these effects by clicking the eye icon.…
But if we go to the right of the name of this effect, we see this little icon. …That allows us to control a little bit more of what this effect is doing. …
