Applying preset styles

The Styles palette, Layer Styles dialog box (Photoshop), and Layer Styles pop-up palette in the options bar for the pen and shape tool let you view and select preset layer styles. By default, applying a preset style replaces the current layer style. However, you can add the attributes of a second style to those of the current style using a keyboard modifier.

The layer styles that come with Photoshop and ImageReady are grouped into libraries by function. For example, one library contains styles for creating Web buttons; another library contains styles adding effects to text.
