|Photoshop layers & drop shadows|
Doing something wrong
| 4:51 pm on Feb 23, 2009 (gmt 0)|
So, I have image2 on a transparent background and give it a nice drop shadow. Then I apple+c it and drop it into a new layer on my master image1. The drop shadow is no longer there.
I've tried umpteen different ways, but haven't figured it out yet. What do I need to do to preserve the drop shadow when putting it and the image into a new layer?

How did you make the drop shadow? If you made it as a layer style, you need to copy the layer style, and then apply it to the new layer in your master image.
To do this, control-click on the name of the layer you wish to copy, choose "Copy Layer Style"
Next, control-click on the new layer in your master and choose "Paste Layer Style".

Thanks - it all makes sense now.
Sometimes it's easy to forget that there's a whole other world just a control-click/right-click away! :-)
