If you’ve been confused by layers or layer masking and want to go back to basics then this is the video for you.

I also go into why adjustment layers are critical for non-destructive editing (and why this is a good thing). Curves, levels, hue/saturation etc. These edits can all be made non-destructively using the techniques shown in this tutorial.
