When working with effects, there are a couple useful things to know that will let you maximize your results. For example, you can rearrange the order of effects applied, temporarily disable specific effects, or even reset all the effects applied to a particular layer.
If you apply two or more effects to a single layer, you can rearrange the order in which they are combined. For example, if you apply a Gaussian blur effect and a Kaleidoscope effect, putting the Gaussian effect on top will mean your original layer is tiled first, then the result is blurred.
To rearrange effects, click and drag the effect up or down the list of effects.
Do one of the following:
In the Layers sidebar, click to select the layer you'd like to see without any effect.
Click and hold the Show Original button at the bottom of the Tool Options pane, or press + on your keyboard.
Flattening all the effects applied to a layer can be useful when you’re happy with the way it looks and you’d like to resize the layer without the effect repeating beyond the edges of the layer (which happens with Tile effects, for example).
Do any of the following:
In the Layers sidebar, –click a layer and choose Effects > Flatten Effects.
Choose Format > Effects > Flatten Effects.
