This tutorial is more to show what adjustment layers can do, rather than how to accheive desired results. Why use adjustment layers? Well, the changes are done in a layer, instead of the image itself. Therefore, once you save your file, you can always go back on tweak it! yay! Beware of large file sizes!! One note here, i exaggerated outcome of this result so hopefully it more a demonstrates of possibilties: Original image: Darn, colours a bit flat :scratch: :idea: I'll pump of the saturation! however, i just don't feel like the colour blue today :scratch: :idea: Ah reds and yellow are the order of the day with colour balance! the image is still a bit dark :scratch: :idea: I'll just play around with the levels!. Darn foreground is still a bit dark. :scratch: :idea: ok so its not an adjustment layer here. What I did was duplicate the main image. On the duplicated layer I right clicked and choose layer options->screen->85%. After that i erased the sky so it would not be blown out but i can now see whats going on with the foreground :cheer: When i wake the next day and think whooah, what was i thinking :shock: , with adjustment layers i can always go back and change 'em. Ya gotta love it!!
