Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Brush-based tonal tools (Dodge, Burn, and Sponge), part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Photography Workflow Strategies.

It's one of the limitations of a Smart Object…and at this point I will need to flatten the file.…I'm going to come in here,…I'm going to Flatten the Image,…but before I choose any of my brush based operations,…I'm going to duplicate the layer and that's…
