Our next meetup is an extension of Before and After focusing on the Adjustment Layers in Photoshop as a tool for nondestructive post processing. Using the curves tool to change brightness has two problems: 1] it is destructive changing the original and 2] it changes the color/saturation in addition to the brightness values. By using Adjustment Layers for Curves with a Luminosity blending mode, you can change the brightness without changing saturation or color. Because Adjustment Layers is done with a layer over the original, it is non-destructive and can be controlled to any level desired. I will post screenshots in the photos album to illustrate the process. Should you decide not to try using Adjustment Layers to add drama, use your preferred technique and be prepared to share it with everyone at the next meetup.
