I have forgotten how to have an adjustment layer affect only the one layer directly below it and not everything below it.  My attempts to simply "Look it up" have failed.  Thanks.

Hi @GButch  There are multiple ways. Here are a few. Select the adjustment layer and: Right-click the layer > Create clipping mask Layers panel menu > Create clipping maskAlt-click/Option-click the line between two layers (the pointer becomes two overlapping circles) (my favorite) Jane

Hi @GButch 

 

There are multiple ways. Here are a few.

 

Select the adjustment layer and:

  • Right-click the layer > Create clipping mask
  • Layers panel menu > Create clipping mask
  • Alt-click/Option-click the line between two layers (the pointer becomes two overlapping circles)

Thank you Jane.

I am a fairly casual PS user. Sometimes weeks go by between uses and my
ageing brain doesn't hang on to all the finer points. Be well. Stay safe.
