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.

Shadow added to both files

    Adding a drop shadow to a group containing both layers should work exactly as you want it to

    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?

  • Why cant you just put both into the same folder and apply the blending styles to that folder in the layers panel ?

  • applying the shadow to the group applies it to all the items in the group ... rather than the group as a whole.

  • @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.

There is something wrong with your Ps.

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