Make your pho­tos look their ab­so­lute best with the help of Fill lay­ers

Fill lay­ers make it ex­tremely sim­ple to im­prove an im­age in no time at all. Whether that’s a boost in over­all con­trast, or to sim­ply ap­ply a grad­ual fade across a sky, these types of ef­fects are just a few clicks away. We’ll show you where and how you can find these types of lay­ers, as well as how to blend and ad­just them to achieve the right level of con­trast and colour. There’s even a fill layer for adding pat­terns and tex­tures into your im­age, which is great if you’re planning on mak­ing a scrap­book. All of this can be done with ease us­ing fill lay­ers, and the best thing is that you don’t need to be an ex­pert or have years of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der your belt. Just follow along with these steps to find out how to con­vert a cityscape im­age to mono­chrome, and then add a heavy dose of con­trast to the sky to re­ally make the clouds stand out. Be­fore you know it, you’ll in­stinc­tively use fill lay­ers in your work. We’ve sup­plied the start im­age on File­silo, so grab that first. Al­ter­na­tively, why not try this tu­to­rial on your own im­ages?
