Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting an adjustment, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
The concept of applying an adjustment that only affects a specific area of an …image might seem a little bit daunting, but in actual fact it can be very, very simple. …In this case for example I'd like to darken down the shoe of this statue just …a little bit. The overall image is slightly dark. …I want to basically equalize the shoe to the image. …It just looks a little bit too bright I think. …And I could in theory create a selection but I'm not sure exactly which portion of …the shoe I'm going to need to darken. I don't think I need to darken this lower …portion, for example, because it's already relatively dark.…
So let's take a look at just how easy it can be to add a targeted adjustment via painting. …I'll start off by adding a curves adjustment. …I think I'm going to darken down the shoe itself with a curves adjustment. …So I'll click on the Add Adjustment Layer button on the bottom of the Layers panel, …and then choose Curves from the pop-up menu. …Now initially, of course, this adjustment is going to affect the entire image. …
