Skinny Mini - Adjustment Layers

Kim at Kim Klassen Cafe is offering a FREE Photoshop "mini e-course."  I started on Monday.  

Today's lesson went deeper into the layers panel and adjusting levels.  Here's my practice before & after. 

I'd like to go back and increase the white in this edit.  With 2 young kids, I'm playing here either at midnight or rushing through naptime.  Just getting a feel for all the tools and having some fun.

Again, I picked up a ton of helpful keyboard tricks from the course.  My favorite - the "scrubber" function (hover on the text next to a slider, hold mouse and adjust slide.)

And, finally I have a better understanding of the histogram.

As I was editing this photo, I was eating milk-chocolate chips from the bag by the handful...while these beautiful pistachios sit in the kitchen!  Hence the reminder to "choose health!"
