    How do I get rid of spotlights without losing their effect? Even flattening the image doesn't do it.

      Mac OSX 10.8.5

      Photoshop CC 2014.0.0

       

      Using Filter–Render–Lighting Effects, I added 7 spotlights to a photo to create a special effect. Now I want to add another lighting effect to the overall image without having it interact with the spotlights that are already in place and I can't make it happen. I have even gone so far as to make a copy of the file, flatten it and save it as a jpg. Still, when I open the jpg and go to Lighting Effects, all seven spotlights are there. I can't even wrap my mind around how that could possibly happen.

       

      Can anyone help me deal with these zombie spot lights??

       

      TIA,
