Q: Is there a way to rasterize layer style in CS5 (or earlier versions)
A: Yes! Sorry, I didn’t know that option was a new addition to CS6. So here’s the workaround; make a new layer below the one you want to rasterize. Select both of those layers, and press Ctrl+E / Cmd+E to merge them together. Tada!! (The “new layer” doesn’t have to be directly below the layer you want to flatten, it’s just nice because when you merge the layers it keeps the name of your original layer)

Q: Why can’t I use certain filters??
A: Odds are that you didn’t create the document in 8-bit (certain filters aren’t available in 16-bit and 32-bit). To change the bit depth of a document, go to Image – Mode – 8 Bits/Channel
