30 Days of Photoshop – Day 16

Adjustment Layers – Levels

Over the next few days we are going to look at a number of adjustment layers.

Adjustment Layers are the preferred way to make adjustments in Photoshop because like so many of the techniques we have looked at so far, they are non-destructive.  You can go back and change them if you want to.

Levels are a very simple way to make precise adjustments to levels of light & shade.  They give you control over your deepest blacks and brightest whites.

There was a time when I made levels adjustments to every single image I edited.  It’s so easy to make images ‘pop’ with the levels tool.  I guess I was looking for a look that was easily repeatable in my photos, one that clearly identified them as being my style.  Levels helped in that.
