After you have your layer style looking just right, you can add it to the Styles palette. From the Styles palette, you can apply your custom style to any layer (except, of course, layers named Background) in any image with a single click. You simply make the target layer active in the Layers palette by clicking it; then click your custom style in the Styles palette.
To add your style to the Styles palette, you must first create it. Select a layer in the Layers palette, open the Layer Style dialog box, and select the layer effects and options. After clicking OK in the Layer Style dialog box, click the middle button at the bottom of the Styles palette (see Figure 12-23). Then, in the New
Style dialog box that appears, assign your custom style a name and click OK. If desired, you can also elect to save the target layer's blending mode as part of the layer style.
