    In anticipation of your response...

     

    A Hard Round brush on a separate layer, followed by Layer - Layer Style, and inner and outer glows.

    ddr3500-

    try having the opacity and hardness of the brush set at the highest settings. it looks like you possibly had the settings in a low opacity and hardness.

    and look at noel's advice above.

    Layer Style > Stroke with Fill Type > Gradient and Style > Shape Burst is another option.

    I suggest you don't use the eraser for that - use a Layer Mask, and check the Layer Mask Hides Effects option in the Blending Options.  Paint black on the Layer Mask to hide pixels, white to reveal them, gray to partially reveal them.

    If you'd really rather "bake" the effects into the pixels and use the Eraser Tool, you can do that by choosing Rasterize - Layer Style:

    Make a new blank layer below palo 2, click back on palo 2 and choose Layer>Merge Down or Ctrl+E

    Or if you want to maintain the layer name, make a blank layer below palo 2, click back on palo 2 and beside the blank layer, click in the box just to the right of the eye icon on

    the blank layer to link the layers. Then go to Layer>Merge Linked or Ctrl+E

    Because it's not a shape or type layer in photoshop 7, it's a pixel layer.

    Later versions of photoshop sometimes have different options.

     

    In fact if one were to look at the flatten layer effects script in cs6, it basically does what i posted in post #8.

    Using a layer mask as Noel suggested is the best way to edit the layer (hide parts of the layer), but if you still want to flatten the effects into your pixel layer

    you could record an action to speed things up.

    You can download the above action here:

    After unzipping the file, load the action into the actions palette.

    Then target the layer with the layer styes and run the action.
