Illustrator :: No Blending Options In Layers

Jan 3, 2014

I recently upped my opinion of Illustrator and was really impressed with how I could change the appearance in the layers panel.
Now unable to find it. Using a mac and CS5.5 when selecting drop down button it is not there any more. Layer options only gives silly basic options like the name of the layer etc. I just don't know what's happened.
Created a brushed metal effect and unable to save as graphic style. This layers blending options was excellent and I can't really use much of the program without it.

Photoshop :: Layer Style / Blending Options Applying To All Layers - Drop Shadow Angles

Apr 15, 2013

I am having a problem in CS6 Photoshop where I never experienced this in CS3-5.
I am designing a website and when I apply a drop shadow or inner shadow to a layer through layer style/blending options in the layers tab. It applys the same angle etc.. to all the other layers I have done styles too...
I will have 5 + layers done with styles and I will make a new layer and give it a shape, open up blending options and when I do a drop shadow and change the angle I literally can see everything on my layout change angles also when I move it around for just ONE layers style... What on earth is going on? This makes it impossible to make unique designs unless I keep flattening my PSD and transfering stuff over which destroys workflow.

Photoshop :: Blending Options!

Mar 21, 2007

how to apply the effects of blending options to a selection rather than an entire layer? My problem is that I have the template for the object I'm designing set up, and I'm trying to set up different textures and effects to different faces. Now, I try to duplicate the different faces on different layers and apply the blending options individually, and that's fine, but the effects are destroyed when I try to merge or flatten the image.

Photoshop :: Why Cannot Record Certain Blending Options Using Actions

Sep 21, 2013

I'm trying to make some recordings/actions, which I've done alot before, but I can't get all of my blending options to record.  Specifically the curves to my bevel & emboss and my contour....after playing the action, it will apply the DEFAULT bevel and won't remember any of my gloss contour settings. 

I'm trying to make these actions universal, however when I select a layer to modify, it records the name of the layer I click if i use the recording later on a different file and it doesn't have that same layer name, then the action won't work...

I have been doing some graphic design in Photoshop CS6 Extended and since Friday it won't let me use the Adjustments that contain all the blending options.  Keeps coming up with the message Program Error.  I have updated EVERYTHING and run through my Mac with Apple support so it has to be something to do with Photoshop.

Photoshop :: Set Multiple Inner Shadows In Blending Options?

Apr 20, 2012

In CSS 3, I'm accustomed to being able to set multiple inset box-shadow values so that I can set four (or even more) inner shadows to a rectangular shape.  In Photoshop, I can only set one inner shadow.  I'm already using stroke for the border, and inner glow doesn't provide me the granular control I want for setting a different inner shadow color on each of the four sides of a rectangle. 

In other words, imagine a rectanglular shape with a 1px border and four 1px inner borders, each of different colors.

Photoshop :: Blending Options, Fx, Effects, Copy, CS4

Jun 16, 2009

In PS CS4In my layers palette, I used to be able to have an effect (ex. drop shadow) on a layer & drag that effect onto another layer so the layers would have the exact same effect.In CS4 when I drag an effect, I lose that effect from that layer & it is put on the layer I dragged it to only. It will not let me copy it anymore.Is there some key I should be holding down now?I am wondering what else I will be running into with CS4. Maybe that wizard will pop out & yell at me.

Photoshop :: Created Blending Options To Layer?

Mar 23, 2008

I go in blending options and do as he said in "Step 1: Build a Base" but I can't apply my newly created blended options to my layer.

Quote" Once you apply the changes to your rounded rectangle, you will have something that looks like Fig 1-4. "

Can't do that above? My button stays with the original color it was created.

Photoshop :: Apply Adjustment Layers To Multiple Layers That Have Different Blending Modes?

Sep 6, 2013

How to Apply adjustment layers to multiple layers that have different blending modes  and keep the colors the same as the adjustment done?
I work in Animation painting Backgrounds.  My files are sometimes upwards to 200+ layers.I will use adjustment layers to quickly balance colours and constrast on top of those many many layers.
The only way that I know of how to apply adjustment layers it to every single layer  ( by applying I mean I need to get rid of the adjustment layers because we cant use them in production but i need the new colours be applied to all layers underneath ) in a psd is to manually do it By duplicating the adjusment layer 200+ times and  then merging each layer to one of those adjustment layers so that that layer can take the adjustment layers effect permanently.
The issue is that Within Those 200 layers I have some layers set to Multiply or OVERLAY.    IT obviously wont apply the adjustment layer properly to those layers because those layer blend mode affect the layers under them. The colour wont be the same anymore in the spots that had the multiply blended mode.


I have 2 adjustment layers up top.  I need to get rid of them by applying them to each layer! I cannot merge any of the layers. We need all those layers for production.I can apply the adjustment layers manually and this works GREAT for all Layers set to normal.  THey take on the colour change just FINE.
However, The issue is that layer 6 and layer 4 are both set to mutiply and this screws up the colour once i apply the adjustment layers to each layer manually...
How can i apply my adjustment layers to a file like this with some layers being set to multiply while keeping the layers exactly the same configuration  and The new colour taking effect exactly how i looks before i apply the adjustment layers? Now the simple solution is to merge the multiply layers to the layer that it affects HOWEVER I NEED those multiply layers to be separate!

Photoshop :: Specific Colour Post Blending Options

Jul 12, 2013

I am working on a project in which I am trying to a achieve a superhero movie post type effect for tha background. I have a picture of building and a 100% opacity layer entirely painted the colour c5322c. The trouble is when I apply blending options, the red colour on the picture is no longer c5332c. It is absolutely necessary that I have the colour c5322c. Is there any way I can end up with the colour c5322c after using the blending options multiply, linear burn, overlay and vivid light? In other words, what colour do I have to start with on my other layer to achieve a product that has the colour c5322c? If the final result doesn't depend on the background picture (aka the building pictures), is there some sort of formula I can use or play around with the colours and blending options?

Photoshop :: Change/Save Default Blending Options

Aug 26, 2007

I rarely (never) use the default color or stroke size of my blending options so I always have to go through the process of changing those with every layer. There's got to be a better way. I would like to have my blending options default to what I use most so I could simply click stroke and move on.

How do you change/save the default blending options?

Photoshop :: Create A Line Shape And Edit In Blending Options

Jun 12, 2012

I can't seem to master this, it's simple in Indesign, but in Photoshop when I draw a line shape, and then go to stroke / drop shadow it in the layers blending options, it strokes a long rectangle, not a line. I'm doing this to mark off a road path on a map.

Photoshop :: Layer Style Blending Options No Longer Previewing

Feb 8, 2007

For some reason, even though the preview button is checked my blending options for one file aren't showing the changes to my image as I make them. In addition, when I exit the blending options screen, the options I've chosen are automatically greyed out--not visible.

It's only doing this on 1 file.

Photoshop :: Blending Layers In CS5

May 7, 2012

I recently downloaded the trial version of Photoshop Cs5. I haven't had many problems and I like it a lot except for ONE thing! I cannot figure out how to blend layers! When I upload my first layer (my image) it shows in the layers palette.  But when I upload my second layer (texture) it not only jumps on top of my first layer in the layers palette, but it ALSO jumps on top of my first layer (the image) in the work area.  I have watched a lot of the Photoshop tutorials and I've noticed that when they upload their second layer it shows SEPARATELY from the first image in the work area. 

They then click on the second layer and drag it over onto the first layer and then they are ready to start working on blending. For the fact that my second layer jumps on top of my first layer in the work area like it does, I am not able to follow along with the tutorials!  I have also tried and tried to figure out how to manage to blend by trying lots of techniques and options in the program but nothing will work. 

I use textures and depend on blending A LOT with my editing so this has been very discouraging!  I have used other editing programs and usually with them, after you duplicate your first layer and then upload another you are able to blend with no problem.  So I do not understand this at all!  You can even blend with no problem by duplicating your first layer in Photoshop Elements 10.

Photoshop :: Blending Layers

Jan 22, 2007

I've got two background color swatches that I've inserted into PS file (in different layers). I'm simulating a night sky at dusk. One color is black with stars, the other is pinkish. I'd like to do a gradient where the sky goes from black at the top to pinkish at the bottom.

Is the best way to tackle this by blending a layer or adding a fill and adjustment layer? I've been experimenting with the gradient tool, but don't have the control I want as far as where the color transitions from black to pink.
