View Full Version : Applying shape layer styles to text?

03-25-2003, 07:02 AM
Is it possible to apply the layer styles I can use for the rectangle tool (polygon tool, line tool etc) to a layer of type. For example, use a ‘red spatters’ or ‘colour target’ layer style on my text. So far all I can do is apply one of the patterns to it.

- Thanks

You should be able to by just having the text layer selected and clicking on the layer style button. If not than rasterize the layer first. Have the text layer selected and go up to layer -> rasterize -> type.

I worked it out five minutes after I first posted...

Layer > layer properties > blending options > styles

All too easy.

Thanks anyway

A layer style is a layer style. It can be applied to any layer, regardless of content, type, or other.
