Ad­just­ment Lay­ers

Amateur Photographer - - Technique -

You can add these by click­ing the Cre­ate Ad­just­ment Layer icon in the Lay­ers panel. Choose from op­tions like Lev­els, Hue/Sat­u­ra­tion and Photo Fil­ters. Each ad­just­ment will ap­pear as a sep­a­rate layer and af­fect all the lay­ers un­der­neath. This is use­ful in multi-layer doc­u­ments and with com­pos­ites as adding a tonal change helps the dif­fer­ent el­e­ments to gel to­gether. Mak­ing the ef­fect on a sep­a­rate layer brings sev­eral other ben­e­fits too. The ad­just­ment re­mains end­lessly ed­itable (dou­ble- click the thumb­nail to re- en­ter the set­tings) and we can ad­just the opac­ity to change its strength, choose a dif­fer­ent blend mode, or paint a layer mask to make the tonal ef­fect work se­lec­tively over spe­cific parts of the im­age.
