Applying a Layer Style to a Layer Group
You can apply a layer style to a layer group. Simply convert the layer group to a Smart Object by clicking on the group, then choosing Convert to Smart Object from the Layers panel's flyout menu, and all of the layer styles will be available to you.
swweeett, let me try that….ahhhh, works but it merges all the layers in that group
A batter way is to select the blending mode for the group. It is set to ‘pass through’ by default which will pass through layer effects to layers below.
this too easy all you have to do is go to the layer you want to copy it’s style and right click on this layer and chose copy style and then select the all group of layer you want to apply the style to and go to the menus open the the menu call layer and then layer style and then click on paste layer stayle and you are done
