Avoid Over-Editing In Photoshop With This Quick Tip

One danger when you are new to photography is over-editing.  It’s easy to get super excited when post-processing.

Opacity is certainly your friend. When using actions in Photoshop or Elements, make sure to adjust the opacity of each layer if needed. But what if you are doing manual edits like the patch tool or cloning?  If you work on duplicate layers you can adjust the opacity of the entire layer.  Another great way to control things is to “fade” them. Go under EDIT – FADE (and look for what you did as your last step). Take full control of your editing.
