RAW Images

- Can't be changed/modified
- Unprocessed data straight from the camera's censor
- Includes everything the censor sees, even if it's not visible to the human eye
- Saved in an external XMP file when you edit in Adobe Camera RAW


What must you do with an XMP file after editing the RAW image in Photoshop?

You must include the file with the image if you wish to keep the changes you made while developing.


How can you duplicate a layer?

- Right click on the layer and select "duplicate"
- Dragging it to the New Layer icon
- Holding down Alt with the move tool selected and dragging the layer out


How do you convert a layer to a smart object?

Right click and choose "Convert to Smart Object"


Smart Objects

- Protect the pixels so nothing can be destroyed.
- Special non-destructive layers (you cannot make any changes that can't be undone later)


What is the Rule of Thirds?

- "Tic tac toe" board
- For a visually pleasing layout, keep focal points on the lines, favoring the intersections


How do you non-destructively crop your images and why is this important?

Deselect the "delete cropped pixels" option. It's important because you will be able to expand your image later if you change your mind.


What is recommended to have more control of your brush?

Reduce flow for more control with the brush
