Assuming that you've worked your way through the previous chapters, you've already met the Adjustments palette and its color correcting adjustment layers. Still for the record, adjustment layers are insanely practical functions that permit you to apply editable color modifications to flat images or multiple layers at a time. I have had you apply adjustment layers in previous exercises and thanks to Photoshop CS4's Adjustments palette, they are pretty easy to use. Which is why this chapter is less about adjustment layers per se and more about how to make them work for you at maximum capacity.
First we'll use a series of adjustment layers starting in RGB and then in Lab to rebuild an image that would have one seemed beyond repair. Then we'll experiment with a few methods for creating absolutely spectacular black and white photographs, and finally we'll assemble a multi-layer composition in which adjustment layer sees the function as corrective tools and become full-blown creative assets. Get ready to be amazed.
