As every PS plug-in, PostworkShop can be recalled with a right-click on the layer in PS. The latest PostworkShop styles used will be applied again. There are different methods of calling back the latest filter applied. 

It is important also to understand that once you applied a style to a PS layer, recalling the same layer in PostworkShop will not make it modifiable since the PS Image is imported and not the PostworkShop layer. If you want to be able to modify the result you get when applying styles in the plug-in, apply the styles applied recently and which are saved in the History subcategory.

Method 1: recall PostworkShop from the Filter menu to another layer of the same PSD file.

For first, we will work on our previous PSD file, and apply a style to the background image by using the plug-in mode of PostworkShop. So from the Filters menu in PS, call the Xycod/PostworkShop plug-in - as shown in the previous tutorials. Automatically PostworkShop will open and the image will be transferred. Postwork your image by dropping styles to the layers. In our example ,we have chosen to use 3 Photo styles: 

When you are done press the Apply or Apply&Exit button. We clicked the "Run the final render, return to the host and exit" button. The image in rendered and progress bar appears. 

Once back to PS, select another layer you want to apply the same style to. We will select Layer 1, the flowers. From the Filters menu, select the first voice: PostworkShop. This is the last used filter. 

PostworkShop will open again and automatically apply the styles you have been creating before, to the new image. The grayish background is not the Canvas color, but it is created by one of the styles applied that included a texture and or paper color. Some styles in fact do not respect the transparency of the image because they already include a background color or a texture necessary for the correct functionning of the style. 

The image is now sent back to Photoshop. The progress bar shows the style being applied.

And the final result in this case is: You shall blend the layers to see the background lady image too. 

 

Method 2: recall PostworkShop from the Filter menu to another image.

To be able to recall the PostworkShop plug-in from the Photoshop Filter menu, you obligatory have to have worked on some other image previously. In our case, we have previously added the styles to the PSD file as shown at the beginning of this tutorial. Open the new image you want to apply the style to, and choose PostworkShop as shown below. 

PostworkShop will open again and automatically apply the styles you have been creating before, to the new image. 

The image is now sent back to Photoshop. The progress bar shows the style being applied.

AAnd the result is: 

 

Method 3: call PostworkShop to a portion of image and then recall it to the whole image by inverting the selection on the image.
