Hey guys, love the family of podcasts you have. I'm a little bit lost with post processing techniques. I use Lightroom for everything except cloning/healing out undesired elements of the image & for that I use Photoshop.
I'm wondering if it is possible to make specific adjustments to specific areas of an image (say colors or highlights or whites, etc.) in layers in Photoshop? Let's say I have an image with blue sky & want to deepen that blue in the sky specifically & not have the adjustment effect other areas of blue in the image. Could I select out the sky of the image & make the adjustment in a layer & have it applied to the original? I'm pretty sure this can be done but I don't have the correct vocabulary or knowledge of post processing to find the answer from a search engine. Any help would be appreciated!!

The answer is yes.  Using masking layers in photoshop can be a great way to add targeted adjustments to an image in photoshop

Majeed and Nick both use Lightroom to manage and sort our files, while we use Photoshop to do pixel level, in depth editing.
