Adjustment layer effects all......

Hi there,

When I add an adjustment to a specific layer, like colour balance, etc, it effects everything below that layer too, as oppose to just the layer beneath the adjustment layer.

Is there a tick box somewhere that I'm missing?!

many thanks!

Hi Jack,

Okay, hold down the Alt (option on a Mac) key and place your cursor (pointer) on the line between the adjustment layer and the layer below it. You should see the pointer change to two overlapping circles. Just click there and you will create a clipping mask that will limit your adjustment layer to just that layer directly below it. There's also an icon at the bottom of the adjustment layer palette that will do the same thing (it also has those two overlapping circles).

Hope this helps.
