Sample text

Photoshop Elements 8 users can work directly in the layer mask with the Levels dialog still open (that non-modal improvement once again). 12. Select the Gradient tool from the Tools panel (or press the letter G) Check that black is the foreground color or you have selected the Black, White option in the Options bar. Drag another Linear gradient from the rocks on the beach almost to the top of the rocks near the sky. This will shield the foreground rocks from the darkening adjustment. 43 Part 1: Optimize 13.

The exposure at the top of the rocks on the right-hand side of the image may need a little adjustment. We can adjust this without affecting the sky. Click on the background layer to make this the active layer and then from the Create New Fill or Adjustment Layer menu choose Levels. The Levels adjustment layer will appear above the background layer and any adjustment you now make will only affect the rocks and not the sky. 42 Project 2: Localized Adjustments 11. In the Levels dialog move the central Gamma slider, directly underneath the histogram, to the right to darken the rocks near the sky.

75 stops and push the Recovery slider to +100. Raise the Brightness slider to +80 and the Contrast and Vibrance sliders to +50. Most of the highlight clipping you can see is either the sun or the very saturated colors in the sky. Select OK in the bottom right-hand corner of the dialog. 39 Part 1: Optimize 5. The new version of the processed file will be placed as a layer above the first version. There will be a big cross across the file, inviting you to scale the image. We just need to click on the green check in the bottom right-hand corner to commit the current size.
