Loading, saving, and merging styles

I'm still working inside Box of bugs.psd, and in the previous exercise I showed you how to access the Styles panel here, how to apply a style and how to save a group of effects as your own style as well. The question now becomes, how do we get back the layer effects we have in the first place, because this new style obviously has nothing to do with our current composition, and also how do we load up a file of styles, and how do we save off such a file as well, and then finally how do we mix and match styles inside of Photoshop? Well, go to the Styles panel if you're working along with me.

Click of the flyout menu icon and choose this command right there, Load Styles. Then navigate your way to the 21_layer_FX folder and there among other files you'll find one called Strings textures.asl. The reason it's called that is because three out of four of the styles that are found inside this file are based on a predefined pattern that ships along with Photoshop called Strings. Anyway...
