Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Focusing adjustments with layer groups, part of Photoshop: Creating Composites (2012).
There are a variety of ways that you can focus adjustments on a particular area of …an image, or in the context of a composite image, on a specific image layer. …You can use a clipping group, for example, in order to have an adjustment …only affect a specific layer. In this case though, I actually have two …layers that I would like to apply the exact same effect to. …And that's because I have a Strawberry layer, where I had a series of …strawberries, and I created a layer mask so that there were only one strawberry visible. …And then I made a copy of that Strawberry layer in order to create a little bit of …a Motion Blur effect for this admittedly zany composite image, where a strawberry …is flying toward a brown Pelican with its mouth wide open.…
The strawberry however, is a little too saturated and I'd like to apply some …adjustments in order to improve its appearance. …But since I have two straberry layers, I can't really use a clipping group without …duplicating the adjustment and I'd rather avoid that. …
