Hi,

I have an image that i'm working on but when I take a layer and add an effect to it it doens't show (drop shadow etc).

I can take a new image and it works fine on that but not on this one .psd.

I have spent hours on the main image is there anyway of sorting this - a setting I have engaged?

Please help.

Charlie

What happens if you duplicate the image via the Image>Duplicate menu? Can you use effects then? Effects use transparency to determine where to put the effect so if the image fills the canvas, has a white background, is on a flattened layer, etc etc you wont see the effect.

Thanks - The duplicate thing worked!

Why the F would that be?

Dunno why it does that. Maybe just some flunky in the file format...dunno.
