Useful Photoshop Editing Skills

Save a temp file

Having a temporary or second file of your work (at least whilst your working on it) can be a lifesaver. Files can and will on occasion become corrupted and damaged, or you may simply need to refer back to an older version, so remember to make a copy.

Naming layers

The naming of layers is an easy one to forget but one that can save a huge amount of time when trying to navigate through a large stack. So get used to naming and become more efficient.

Use layer masks

Masks are a fundamental tool when working with a deconstructive workflow, as they allow you to edit specific areas of a layer without effecting its original properties. This offers a very flexible and varied editing process that allows the original copy to be easily reverted back to at any time.

    Portrait photography tips

    If you’re just starting out, chances are you don’t have a studio or fancy lighting equipment. Your best bet is to use window light. Turn off all the lights in the room and move near a window with some curtains so you can play around with diffusing the light.
