Don't have a suitable layer in your file? Use the Type tool to create some random text, and you'll have a great layer for testing this tip.
Click once on the layer to which you want to add the layer style within the Layer palette; this makes that layer active. You can add a layer style either by choosing Layer I Layer Style from the top menu or clicking the Add Layer Style button at the bottom of the Layers palette. After doing so, choose which layer style to add from the menu and customize that effect in the Layer Style dialog box, as shown in Figure 6-8.
