It can take a while to figure out what does and doesn’t work in Photoshop for new photographers. We’ve all been there. We’ve discovered some new tool or technique, and we go overboard. We think it looks amazing, we start doing it to every image, but we’re really doing ourselves more harm than good. In the long run, it’s all part of the learning experience, but the sooner we figure this stuff out, the sooner we can move on.
This video from YouTube channel Photoshop Tutorials, highlights five of the most common Photoshop mistakes photographers make. I’m not sure I entirely agree with the first one. I do in part, though. Why do something with a dozen layers if one will do? Aside from anything else, it’s wasted time. Sometimes, you really do need 100+ layers, though (but, please, learn to group them).
