    Default [Photoshop] Adjustment layer for dodge and burn?

    i'm wondering if it's possible to do the above? currently i just do it straight onto the bg layer. it wld be nice if i can keep them separated.

    There are a few ways you can do it. The most common I've heard is:

    1. Add a new layer on top of the original.

    2. Choose Overlay as the blending option.

    3. There is a checkbox for you to set to default color (can't remember the exact name). Click that checkbox.

    4. Thereafter, use shades of black and white to do dodge and burn.

    I did come across dat while googling for a solution. Somehow i prefer using the default dodge & burn tool BUT on another layer. Not possible huh?
