Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpening and creating layer comps, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
Here we're going to take a look at how we can take advantage of layer comps…in order to view our image at different stages and to evaluate our overall progress.…So let's navigate to the Window pull down menu and then choose Layer Comps.…This will open up the Layer Comps panel.…Now what you can do is you can turn off the visibility of certain layers.…For example, I want to see what this image looks like without all of the color…adjustments and also without the extreme blur,…so I'll turn off the visibility of those layers, click on the New icon…and simply click OK.…
I am not even going to name that.…I'll just leave it as is.…Of course, if you want to be organized, you could name this, and perhaps maybe I should do that.…I am just going to call this normal.…Next, I am going to turn on this adjustment layer, which gave us this blue color…and also the contrast.…So I'll go ahead and click on this, and we'll call this…"normal-color/contrast" and click OK.…Next, we'll turn on the visibility of the blur layer and then click on this…
