Photoshop: Adjustment Layers

Our first assignment was to bring in a photo and add some adjustment layers to it.  This is me. In the original photo, I was a little red in the face.  I took out the redness and lightened up the photo a bit. I used hue/saturation, brightness, and curves. All on adjustment layers to make them non-destructive to the photo. That is one of the most important lessons in photoshop, I think. As much as possible, make all changes on their own layers. And use adjustment layers instead of doing an adjustment from the drop down menu. I love being able to remove adjustments or change the opacity of the adjustment. Did I mention I love non-destructive work on photoshop? Me and my fickle self love the option to change my mind. :)
