I have been working on this Composite image of my son for the last couple of days. Like all composites, the layers palette tends to get pretty thick with every new layer addition. With such a thick palette it is easy to get wrapped up in layer masks and adjustment layers. However, Photoshop does allow for some INCREDIBLE layer control.
You see, working in Photoshop is a lot like storing files on your hard drive. If you are rather unorganized you will never find what you are looking for. But if you are proactive and you create folders, you can make that once chaotic mess look pristine and polished.
I sometimes take these little things for granted in Photoshop. Like most things in life it is all about the little things! In this tutorial I will show you a little tip to turn that messy layers palette into an organized chunk of awesomeness. It is not only great for your composites, it works wonders on your HDR processing!
