Using layers to adjust images in Photoshop
I am often asked what is the best way to adjust images in Photoshop? So I thought it deserved a post on the blog to help you get the best images when editing.
Question: How do you do color and density corrections in Photoshop?
Answer: I use adjustment layers whenever possible. Why? If you use adjustment layers then save the file as a PSD you can go back and see what you have done. You can make small adjustments from the last place that you adjusted without starting over. And finally if you get one image looking great and you have a number of others that need the same adjusting then you can drag the adjustment layer to other images.
So how do I do this?
1 – Open your image
2 – Select Adjustment layer (see picture below)
3 – Make your adjustment
4 – Select okay
5 – When done save as a PSD file so that next time you open it the layers will still be accessible and adjustable.
It is as easy as that!
