Photoshop Layers more in Depth 

Photoshop Layers is a powerful tool when you learn the uses and workflow of this amazing tool.

Here is an example that you can do almost all of your editing non-destructivly by using Photoshop Layers. In this photo I like how the leaves are composed and backlit.

But I don’t care about the background as it is too distractive and sky in this photo is just a white spot which is distractive as well. So I decided to make these leaves to stand out more by removing and replacing the background and adding a Flare effect to the image. Here is the after:

As you see by editing this picture only in layers, not only I create an amazing photo, but also maintain the original photo.
