Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving composition by cropping, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
Now here at this final step with this image, the last thing I want to do…is organize my layers.…So to do that click in your topmost layer, hold down the Shift key, click in the…bottommost layer, then press Command+G or Ctrl+G for Group.…We'll go ahead and just name this retouching.…Here we can see our before and after, and the great thing about this is let's…say we don't like our Motion Blur.…No big deal, just turn off that layer. Or perhaps one of our adjustments is a bit too strong.…We can just continually go through this and make changes to any of these…layers as we see fit.…
All right, well that looks pretty good I think.…Now the last thing I want to talk about is how we can have even more…creativity at this juncture.…Now there is a lot that we could do here, right.…We could play with color and tone or sharpness or focus or do HDR Toning, all of…these different kinds of things.…But many times when we get to making adjustments, we're a little bit nervous…because we don't want wreck this file.…
