Hi all,

 

I've taken a PSD file (exported from CS6) and imported it into Affinity Photo. Although the import worked fine and all layers/groups are as expected, I've found all layers that had the drop shadow layer effect applied from Photoshop have had the effect merged into the layer in Affinity Photo. So I can't remove or edit the layer effect.

 

This is the only layer effect that the PSD uses so I can't tell if it would do this for all layer effects or if it's specific to drop shadow.

 

Is this meant to happen or is there a way I can prevent it from flattening the layer in future imports?

 

Thanks.

Hi Dxruss,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

Layer Effects applied to most objects should import fine when brought into Affinity Photo. Please could you attach the .PSD file that you are experiencing this issue with so I may investigate this further?

Hi Dxruss, 

 

The Photoshop drop shadow layer effect can be separated out to become an independent layer in Photoshop CS6, maybe that might help? 

 

Paul.
