This is one of my favorite topics when it comes to working with layers. It’s probably because there is so much you can do with some simple retouching tools and just a couple of layers. Now, as you read this chapter, keep in mind one thing: this isn’t meant to be a one-stop shop for all of your retouching needs. Instead, I’d like to show you how to put some of the layer functions that you’ve seen already to a different use. Plus, there are a few tools in Photoshop for retouching that have some layer-related options that you can use to make your retouching even better.
