adjustment layer
on Oct 3, 2009 at 12:34:32 pm

I am making an A4 poster from 10 individual JPEG images.
Each photo is contained in a separate layer, so I have 11 layers in total; 10 photos and a coloured background layer.

I created a curves adjustment layer to alter one of the photos, but it alters all the layers below it.

Can I create an adjustment layer that only alters one specific layer?

Yes you can. While holding the Alt (option for Mac) key down, position the pointer over the line that separates the adjustment layer and the layer directly below it (the one you want it to effect). You'll see something that looks like two dark circles (one overlapping the other). Click there, and you'll see your adjustment layer move a little to the right and it will add a down-pointing arrow. This is a "clipping mask" and it will restrict your adjustment layer to just the layer below it.

Hope this is helpful.
