Let’s say that you’ve created an awesome layer style—maybe it’s a leopard-skin texture with a double pink and white stroke, baked into a golden bevel. Okay, maybe something not quite so loud, but you’re working on a series of images, such as posters or flyers, and you want to use the same layer style on another image. You don’t have to reproduce it; you can easily copy it between open documents in Photoshop. In the Layers Panel, Right-click on the layer with the layer style, and choose Copy Layer Style from the menu that appears. Go to your other document in Photoshop, Right-click on your destination layer, and choose Paste Layer Style. Amazingly, Photoshop lets you copy these layer styles across different documents.
