Tutorial - Overcast Landscapes Don't Have to Be Boring

Stack: When we open multiple exposures directly into Photoshop, the images will not be stacked on top of each other in the layers panel. Instead, they will open as separate windows. The Stack button will collapse these windows and stack the exposures in the layers panel.
Del Layer: This deletes the selected layer.
Highlights: Can be used for quick exposure blending, and applying specific adjustments. Essentially, this will apply a Brights 1 luminosity mask to your layer. So you can target only the highlights of that layer.
Shadows: This is the same as Highlights, only it will apply a Darks 1 mask, therefore only affecting the darker tones.
Adjust: After pressing Highlights or Shadows, Adjust will bring up a Levels dialogue in which you can edit the mask, making your adjustments more targeted.
Undo: This will undo your last action.
Del Mask: Deletes Mask of the selected layer.
Merge: You need more than one layer to perform this function. It merges all visible layers non-destructively, leaving every layer intact, and adding a new merged layer on top which we can then edit.

I’ve followed Jimmy’s advice and techniques for a while now and thought this course would teach me nothing that I hadn’t already learnt from him but I was wrong.
