In this video we look at how we can change the lighting and tones in an image by making a selection and an Adjustment layer. It is also a great way of creating Black and White images as well as toning an image. In Photoshop this technique is known as luminosity masking where channels are used for the selection. In the video we look at a simple work around which will allow us to use this great technique in Elements.

Some of the tools used include:-

  • Layers
  • Short cuts
  • Masking (Luminosity)
  • Adjustment layer
  • Blend modes
