I made a presentation for the Photographic Society of Rhode Island (PSRI) on January 20, 2009. The title “Don’t Bruise the Pixels” was the core idea behind non-destructive editing in Photoshop. After the initial talk segment, I demonstrated the idea and what could be done by using layers, blend modes, and the blend if sliders. The following slideshow contains the initial talk material. It may make more sense to people who watched the presentation but the general ideas can provide the foundation for ideas that you may use to adjust your workflow. The following link will pop up a window and display the slide presentation. To navigate, use the “Next” and “Previous” arrows at the bottom of the slides to see the full content of all.
