When you use an adjustment layer in Photoshop that manipulates colors, you don’t see the coding that goes on behind each of them. What if you were able to understand exactly what is happening?

Edmon Amiraghyan, Los Angeles-based photographer and retoucher, brilliantly made this PSD where he shows us exactly how each adjustment layer is translated using a curve. It sounds complicated, but I made a video that explains in detail on how this works and why this is amazing.
