Pete's Tip 2 - Better Photoshop burning

I've done this on a video, but for those who missed it.
When burning in a background to make it black create a curves adjustment layer first and adjust the curve so the image looks incredibly light. From this you will see the areas that are already black. Click on the layer below that you want to edit and use the burn tool to make all the areas you want black become black.

Advanced users could create a second layer under the adjustment layer and edit that so the original is untouched. You may also prefer to do the burning in using a layer mask. If it alls sounds unclear check out the video I created here: Using Photoshop Adjustment Layers as a burning preview

I aim to Smile I was thinking the other day after a comment made by Wooly who I met on Sunday that there are so many people on here who are probably writing tips like this by PM daily, just to one or two friends or other members who've asked them a question...shame we cant share. And here's an ideal place!

But - it's only of use to people who have the full Photoshop CS.
No curves with Elements.

Elements has an adjustment layer option. So you can create a brightness adjustment layer which is similar.
