Using Shadows and Highlights Nondestructively in Photoshop
Happy 2011! We’ll kick off the new year by talking about one of the most important things you can do, as part of your image adjustment workflow in Photoshop.
The Shadows/Highlights adjustment allows you to perfect local areas of contrast in your scene, but unfortunately there is not currently an Adjustment Layer for Shadows/Highlights. Instead we’ll create a Smart Object layer and integrate the adjustment into that layer (as a Smart Filter) so that we can revisit the settings as many times as we need to after saving the document.
We seem to be having some trouble embedding this video, but you can see the tutorial here until we get it fixed. 🙂
