Understanding layers and masks in Photoshop also allows you to combine multiple photos into one image for improved dynamic range.

Non Destructive Editing

Use adjustment layers to non-destructively edit images

Learn how to make your contrast and color edits via adjustment layers for true non-destructive editing that can be reversed or modified at any time, leaving your original images untouched and pristine. You’ll also learn which adjustments are important for image editing, as well as how to modify layer opacity and visibility.

Masking Adjustments

Mask layers to selective apply adjustments
Being able to control the extent of your adjustments is crucial to subtle and beautiful image editing. Learn how to create subtle, detailed, and precise masks to apply your adjustments to only certain parts of an image, like the sky, the foreground, or a cluster of rocks.

Combining Multiple Photos

Combine Images Using Layers and Masks
Cameras have many limitations compared to the human eye, especially when it comes to dynamic range. Oftentimes in scenes with lots of dynamic range your photos will be exposed properly in the foreground and your sky will be blown out, or your sky will be well exposed and your foreground is too dark. Learn how to use layers and masks to combine multiple images into one master image with maximum dynamic range. Also learn how to edit each individual part of the image separately using layer order and clipping masks.
