Tip 3: Link your Layers
(Click for a full-res image)
If you want an Adjustment Layer to affect just the layer right below it, you can link them. Hold down Alt (Option on a Mac) and click on the line between the two layers you want to link. You’ll see an icon with two overlapping circles—once they’re linked, the upper layer will show a bent arrow pointing to the one it’s linked to. This Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer now alters only the color of the lantern floating on the layer below, not the whole image.
