Looking at the general interface – here you can play around with the general setup of the interface.

Here you can also change the colour of the background to suit what you are working with should you need to.

You can also change the preference tool and the layout of the interface depending on what you are using it for – in my case it is using it for photography.

With this tool you can also edit some independent parts to the photograph as seen below.

You can then layer mask this in the above photo and edit that specific point of the image – you can also edit where the dotted lines hold.

On the colour range option you can also edit Thes specific points as well. The useful part about this is that it will also change the reflection as well of the sign as well.

To get the correct exposure of one image whilst on location you should take photographs at every f.stop for the times. The on photoshop open all of the images and then drag and drop the lightest onto the darkest and merge the images. After that

After that go onto ‘Edit’ and ‘fill’ and select ‘Black’ onto it or you can just use the short cut of “command i”

Then in the top left-hand corner you can select the correct gradient you want and drag the line down to merge the two gradients correctly together.
