Combining layer effects and type

I've saved my progress as Figure 365 in Red.psd, and in this exercise we're going to take these large red numbers, and we're going to style them using a series of layer effects that I've created for you in advance. Now, we'll look at layer effects in detail in a future chapter, but for now, I'll give you a sense of how they work, and they are uniquely suited to Photoshop. You'll find layer effects such as Drop Shadows and so forth inside the other Creative Suite applications, but none of them hold a candle to the vast array of options that are provided to you inside of Photoshop.

Now, you may recall ultimately we want 365 to look like this; this is the final Pout magazine.psd file. We've got shadows and highlights and rounded contours associated with these letters, we've got outlines, we've got these kind of patterns running through the letters; all of that stuff is thanks to layer effects. All right, so I'll switch back to the image in progress...
