Photoshop CS5 - Introduction to adjustment layers

Apply adjustment layers to manipulate the color, tone, contrast, and other aspects of images. Apply adjustments non-destructively, monitor levels in the panel's histogram, and paint away adjustments with the built-in layer mask.

What I wanted to do was to make a few adjustments to make the portrait stand out a bit and to desaturate the Bokeh and the effect that I are achieved in the end was this where we've got the portrait with having more contrast a bit more saturation and the Bokeh has been desaturated but it's still providing that nice decoration at the edges and that was achieved using just a couple of adjustment layers and what I want to do in this video is to demonstrate the use of adjustment layers.

Now let me go back to the beginning and now we've just got our portrait and the Bokeh images decorating it the portrait is on screen mode and the Bokeh layers are underneath it. In order to desaturate the Bokeh what i would have done in the old days is to go to the Bokeh layer then go to image, adjustments and to choose desaturate or to press Shift Ctrl U on my keyboard as a shortcut.
