Core Skills: Photoshop Levels [HD] Video Tutorial
The Levels command in Photoshop is one of the most frequently used tools in the photo manipulators arsenal. To the layman this function may not appear that glamorous, but it’s one of those things that you’ll return to time and again, regardless of the project. Put simply, Levels can boost or lower the intensity of the tonal range of an image, something that’s particularly important when compositing multiple images.
When using the levels command in conjunction with adjustment layers, you are afforded a whole new element of control. Check out the HD tutorial below to get the full skinny:

• Hit Ctrl+L (Mac: Cmd+L) to quick launch the Levels command.
• The histogram represent the shadows, midtones and highlights of an image.
• Experimentation is key, be wary of ‘overdoing’ the intensity however.
• Using an adjustment layer allows you a lot more control. You can go back anytime and amend the values of the Levels and apply the changes selectively using a layer mask.
• When using layer masks, use the bracket buttons ‘[ ]‘ to enlarge and decrease brush size and use ‘x’ to switch between black and white.
