Moving along the tutorial on how to learn Photoshop CC for you Digital scrapbook layouts or digital art creations.

Today we’re talking about adjustment layers, as I said in the video this is not going to be the first tutorial I will do because we have to talk about all 4 sections. But it’s a good overview to get us started.

In this tutorial you’ll learn:

  • Overall what are adjustment layers

What are the advantages of adjustment layers:

It’s non-destructive, every time you add a adjust layer because adjustment layers have attached to them a layer mask.

To Remember: if you don’t clip the adjustment layer to the layer you want to change it will affect the whole layout.

I created a workbook to help you not just to know what is adjustment layer that the video will help you, but I created some questions for you to think about and learn what kind of different things you can create with it.

This was my final layout from the tutorial

I can’t wait to see what you come up with a share in the comments if you create something. Think about all the different ways you can use the adjustment layers that I created there.

Adjustment layers can really make a huge difference in our digital artsy scrapbooking creations or any type of digital art and composite you want to do.
