A simple PS tip for hands-on control of your layer styles. Am I the only one that didn’t know this?
Special thanks to my buddy Jim Geduldick for IM’ing me last night with info on Screenr.

As a longtime Photoshop user, I never knew about that feature- always used the Layer Style palette. Thanks for sharing, love the quick tips!
I discovered this by error a few months ago. It works great for positioning the radial gradient overlay.
it’s all the stupid little things in software that are the most useful but least known.
Hey thanks man. I didn’t know that one either.
What I really want to know is when you’re going to start making some harmonica tuts…
Tthanks alot, Aharon.. Yeah, we are waiting for your harmonica tutorials
Yup! It’s a great feature. I came in terms with it the first time by just reading what it says on the bar at the top. Look, it reads “Click and drag to reposition the effect.”!
Correct, it’s hardly noticeable, but it’s there to inform us…
thnx. great tip. didnt know that
never thought of that ,, its great.. just checking if its only in cs4!
nice tut man…….thnx a lot
Also, jst a suggestion nothin much dt if u could jst number ur tutz like video copilot………no comparisons, u both r equally gud in ur places n rock………bt it makes ur followers to easily track tutz jst in case if sm1 missed in between………
thnx for all u hv been doin 4 d community…….c u around
cool tip – thanks Aharon.
Thanks for the great tip
Used PS for a while and never knew that.
Thanks Will. Who’s Ira?
you said you couldn’t use that later on with AE but you CAN:
(sorry if this is too obvious)
after youv’e created a drop shadow (for example)
PS adds two lines below the layer (“effects” and below that “Drop Shadow”) , right click on either of them and choose “Create Layer” (3rd from the bottom) – it is now a standalone layer u can use in AE, or if you want you can merge the layer with the text itself.
again hope i’m not stating the obvious
Some HTML is OK
