    How to flatten without losing layer effects' "looks"

    Community Member
      I am working on a client project involving photoshop files, each containing lots of layers and a fair amount of layer effects...things like drop shadow, glow, bevel, etc.

      I am not having luck flattening these images (which I need to do) without losing the look of the original.

      For example, the shadows might be there, but they aren't as dark, or the glows might not be as bright.

      I am using CS4 for Mac OS X, and this vendor used a Windows version of photoshop, but I don't know which version.

      thanks for any ideas!
