hello..

is it possible to make an adjustment layer only effect the layer below, or have the choice of layers it effects?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

No.

To do that, you need to precompose the adjustment layer with the layers that you want it to affect, or precompose the layers and then apply the effects to the precomposition layer directly.

The way that an adjustment layer works is that it applies effects to the composite of all layers beneath it. It's not like the adjustment layer is being applied to each layer individually so you could choose some for it to apply to and some for it not to apply to.
