Course Overview

About This Tutorial

The true power in Photoshop lies in being able to edit with layers and masks. In simplest terms, layers allow you to edit your images non-destructively so that any changes you make can be reversed or modified at any point in the future. Masks allow you to apply image adjustments like curves or saturation selectively to different parts of your images as you see fit. Understanding layers and masks in Photoshop also allows you to combine multiple photos into one image for improved dynamic range.
