I found a tutorial on how to save layer styles. Now I need to figure out how to use the saved layer style.
Once you are happy with the effect you've created you will want to save it for use later. To do this open the Blending Options Window again. Along
the right hand side you will see a 'New Style' Button:
Did you notice the nice little thumbnail example of our Layer Style? I love that!
Anyway, click the New Style button. In the pop up you may name your style, as well as choose to Include Layer Effects and Layer Blending Options. I
usually leave these selected to prevent the loss of a step or effect.
Remember a few paragraphs ago when I had you delete the Styles in the default styles palette? View the Layer Styles palette again and you should see
your style there, ready to be re-applied to a fresh batch of text, a button, or anything your heart desires. After you have made a few of these, click
the arrow in the upper right to open the Layer Styles menu and save your batch of styles. Now you can load and use these anytime or send them to your
buddies. Not only is this very cool, but cuts the time trying to capture that effect again.
