In the image below, my drop shadow is applied to layer 7, yet it is impacting layer 8. I don't want the drop shadow to appear on the right edge of the layer. I only want the circle to have a drop shadow. I've turned off global light.

Thanks!

That was exactly the issue.  Thanks so much.  How do I accept the answer?

Hi

A question that I cant answer just by looking at your screenshot.  Are you sure the right edge pixels of layer 7 are completely transparent. Even a single line of 1% opacity will generate a shadow. To check just run the eraser tool down the edge of layer 7 and see if the shadow disappears.

Another way to check for something like this is hitting cmd-T – is the bounding box as expected or does it include space that should be empty?

I've marked c.pfaffenbichler's answer as correct for you (he answered correctly first).
