Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Matching effects between layers, part of Photoshop: Creating Composites (2012).
If you add a Layer effect to a composite image, there's a good chance that you'll …work on a single layer while you're establishing those effects. …Here for example, I have a Shells layer and I've added some effects, a Bevel & …Emboss and a Drop Shadow to this particular layer. …But once I decide that I'm happy with the result, I might want to add those …effects to another layer. And of course, ideally, I want the …results to be exactly the same. I want to use the exact same effect for …both of these layers. To accomplish that, I can simply copy and …paste effects between layers. I'll go ahead and right-click on the …Effects option below the Shells layers. And then, I'll choose Copy Layer Style …from the pop-up menu. I can then right-click on the other …Shells layer in this case. In other words, the layer that I want to …add the exact same effect to, and then right-click on the layer and choose Paste …Layer Style and that will paste the exact same effect to that layer.…
In other words, I'm copying the effects from one layer and adding it to another layer. …
