Photoshop CC tutorial 17: How do adjustment layers work.

Adjustment layers

The Adjustment Panel allows you to make changes to the layer (such as Hue and Saturation, Colour Balance, Levels etc.) that can later be edited or removed.

  1. File > Open > Photoshop Exercise Files > Layer Adjustments > Layer Adjustments 1.jpg.
  2. Window > Adjustments.

  3. You can click on any of the icons in the Adjustment Panel to create an Adjustment Layer (I’ve started with Color Balance).

  4. The Adjustment Panel will change to settings specific to that adjustment. You can play with the settings to get the best result. Clicking the Eye icon at the bottom of the panel will turn the preview of that adjustment on or off.

  5. You will see the adjustment appear as a new layer in your Layers Panel. Each new adjustment that you perform will appear as another new layer.

    Note: You can go back at any time and edit the adjustment by right clicking on the layer in the Layers Panel and choosing Edit Adjustment.
