With Soft Proofing enabled, the first time that you make a change to your image, Lightroom presents a dialog asking if you want to “Create virtual copy for soft proofing?” If you choose “Create Proof Copy”, Lightroom automatically creates a virtual copy allowing you to preserve your previous settings (in the master file), and create […]

Adding Adjustment Layers in Photoshop

April 15, 2014 | By

Clicking on the adjustment layer icon at the bottom of the Layer’s panel quickly adds an adjustment layer while bypassing the New Adjustment Layer dialog box.  However, when adding Gradient and Solid Color Fill layers, I often want the option to change the blend mode of the layer (before choosing the colors).
