Photoshop has a legendary array of editing tools at your disposal: Curves, Levels, Color Balance, Saturation, Gradient Maps, Channel Mixer, etc. Each allows you to apply unique effects to your images, so when your photo calls for a very specific kind of edit it’s not uncommon to stack up layer after layer of adjustments to get that perfect look. Unfortunately, each additional layer adjustment you apply can degrade your image quality. Here are some of the best ways to maximize your image quality while editing.
A quick side note: I can hear a bunch of you already shouting at me: but adjustment layers are non-destructive, so what are you talking about degrading image quality for??? True, adjustment layers are “non-destructive,” but what that really refers to is the ability to apply and remove adjustments without altering the actual pixels of the background layer. Since you aren’t affecting the original pixels, this editing is called “non-destructive;” this is NOT the same thing as degrading image quality. With adjustment layers it’s still entirely possible to push an image outside of its color gamut or to stretch its tones too far apart, resulting in posterization or banding. What we’re going to talk about here is how to maximize your image quality while also editing non-destructively.
