    Hi, I watched tutorial on youtube (
    ) and I can't figure how he
    manage that he first makes B&W adjustment layer, after that he makes new
    layer with "Blur" effect. When I try to make new layer, I only get
    transparent layer, or copy of previous B&W adjustment layer.

    Can anyone explain how to do this? (Sorry about my bad english)

    This is a tutorial that shows what Mark Galer's "High Impact" Action
    does. The Action itself can be downloaded at for a fee of $2.00.

    You aren't going to be able to tell what he did on the Blur layer from
    following the tutorial...just what the effect is. Galer is selling
    his Actions, so he's not going to reveal what he does on each step.

    While I can't tell you what Galer specifically did, what he's doing in
    general is duplicating the Background layer (Control J) and then
    applying a blur to that layer using the drop-down Filter>Blur and then
    choosing a setting from the choices now available.

    The mistake you're making is creating a new layer instead of
    duplicating the Background layer and applying the blur to that layer.
