Tip # 50. Photoshop comes with a very nice set of styles built in. Not all of the styles are loaded by default. Instead of spending your hard earned money for a style someone else created, try loading and playing with the styles that you already have. The list starts with ‘Abstract Styles’ and ends with ‘Web Styles.’ Click on the teensy arrow to the right of the tabs at the top of the Styles panel and then select something from the list. I like ‘Glass Buttons’ and use it a lot. A pop up will appear asking if you’d like to Replace your current styles with the ones from the set you just chose. I strongly recommend clicking on the Append button. This will add your newly loaded styles to the end of the set you already have. Otherwise, you will lose any styles you created and haven’t saved yet. Or, you won’t have access to that style you just used unless you load it again.
