Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving the master image, part of Photoshop CS6 for Photographers Quick Start.
Whether you spend just a few moments, or hours perfecting an image, you'll want to …save that image. Early and often. …You want ot make sure that all of the changes you've applied are preserved in …the file. And perhaps, more importantly, that …they're preserved in such a way that you can always go back and refine the …adjustments you've applied. In this case, for example, I might crop …the image to straighten things up just a little bit. …I can rotate the photo so that clock tower is more vertical, for example. …I'll go ahead and apply that crop and then perhaps I'll apply some basic adjustments.…
I can apply a levels adjustment for example, to brighten up those highlights …using the clipping preview in the process. …And then perhaps adjust the overall brightness of the image. …It looks like the color's in pretty good shape. …I might warm things up just a little bit. I'll shift the balance just a hair toward …yellow, and maybe just a tiny bit toward red, but not much. …And then I'll also boost the colors with a vibrance adjustment. …
