    Wow! I am so glad I stumbled onto your website. I have been struggling with PS for so long, spent too much money trying to learn and have been unsatisfied with the process, then I find YOU! Thank you for inspiring me again to give it a try. I am such a visual learner and your videos and clear instruction are amazing! I have a couple of questions based on this video.
    How do you know at what point you are supposed to flatten an image and why? When you used different opacities ( 2 minute mark) to mask out the warming tones for the dress and eyes on the same layer, how does that work? Doesn’t changing the opacity for one change what you just did for the other if its on the same layer?
    When you decreased the opacity of the warming action you made a new layer. Can you just go back to that original action layer and change it there?
    Thank you so very much for sharing your skills. I’m so excited to find you!

      Hi Mary!! I’m so glad you found the site and found something helpful here!

      In response to your ‘flattening’ question… If I am just doing adjustment layers (curves, levels, hue/saturation, etc.), I don’t need to flatten until the end, when I’m done editing. However, many of the actions/steps I use require the use of the Filters in Photoshop (mainly the Sharpening filters). So if I’m smoothing skin or sharpening eyes, those steps use the Filters… and the Filters require an actual layer of pixels… so that’s when I flatten! I have a tutorial on Adjustment vs. Pixel Layers here if you need more info: http://www.polishedpicture.com/photoshop-basics/photoshop-basics-layers-part-2-adjustment-vs-pixel-layers/

      In response to the opacity question… Make sure you understanding masking (http://www.polishedpicture.com/photoshop-basics/photoshop-basics-layer-masking/ and http://www.polishedpicture.com/photoshop-basics/layer-masking-part-2/). I basically created an effect and then covered up the areas with my mask that I didn’t want affected. So I warmed the entire photo, and then masked out her face and dress so they weren’t warmed up too much. I wanted the background even warmer than that first layer made it, so I duplicated it. Then it was too warm, so I reduced the opacity of the entire second layer.

      If you play around with masks a bit, I think this will all make more sense! I hope I was able to help a bit!!
