Have you ever wondered what are most important features in Photoshop that makes it so unique? 

Answer for this question is simple; Adjustement Layers, Masks, and Blending modes. Mastering this 3 features of photoshop allows you to achieve everything you want in photography or graphic work. 

Starting from the layers which are foundation of every work you do in Photoshop. Whether it's image, some graphic object, text - those elements of your work often lives on it's own layers and with combination of other layers it create the final image. And major part of you layers in photoshop will be the ones called ''adjustement layers''.

Curves, Levels, Selective Color, Color Balance. Sounds familiar? Those are the names of just few adjustement layers without which your work would be much more difficult. They help you with adjusting contrasts, lights, colors of the image. And they allow to do all of those things in non-destructive way.

But forget about boring theory, I am just going to shop you with the layers behave with different blending modes, so next time you will be working with photoshop you know what to expect!

And finally I am going to teach you layer masks. In this course you will find out what are masks, how to use them in basic way by switching from white to black. How to correct object in non-destructive way using masks. And we will end up with more advanced things such as creating precise masks for shadows and highlights, creating masks for separated colors, or even working woth luminosity masks to change color values of the images or fix exposure issues.
