I have two objects, both on seperate layers. I want to apply a shadow behind both, when I apply a style to a group or selected layers it applies it to both.

I don't want to have to merge the layers as this would be too time consuming over 100s of files and the recorded action doesn't seem to working either.

    Adding a drop shadow to a group containing both layers should work exactly as you want it to – Cai Sep 14 '17 at 17:58

    I'm really unclear: "apply a shadow behind both, when I apply a style to a group or selected layers it applies it to both" -- okay so what's the problem?? Is it that the action can't group layers? – Scott Sep 14 '17 at 18:28
  • Why cant you just put both into the same folder and apply the blending styles to that folder in the layers panel ? – Patrick Sep 15 '17 at 7:09
  • applying the shadow to the group applies it to all the items in the group ... rather than the group as a whole. – Aasim Azam Sep 15 '17 at 9:29
  • @AasimAzam you're getting shadows from one part of the group on top of another element in the group? If so, you shouldn't be so edit to include a screenshot of the layers panel and result. – Ryan Sep 27 '17 at 7:11

There is something wrong with your Ps.

I made a picture to show how the drop shadow effect affects the Group Layer:
