Tip: this activity involves a lot of experimenting with different effects and colour adjustments. There are built-in ways to reset or remove the settings to then bring the image back to its original look. However, if you ever have trouble removing an applied effect, just close the tab WITHOUT saving it and then re-open the original image. 10. The Layers panel is part of a bigger panel group. Find and select the Adjustments panel in this same group. 11. Click on Levels and notice that it expands to reveal three thumbnails as well as creating a pop-up window with various colour level settings: a. Click on the Darken thumbnail and then the Lighten one. Click the Default thumbnail to revert to the original image. b. Experiment with the sliders in the window for Black Level, White Level, Gamma, Output Black Level, and Output White Level.

7 c. Revert to the original level settings, by clicking the Reset button in the upper right corner of this Levels window. 12. Click on the White Balance adjustment. Just like the Levels adjustment, this one will reveal a few thumbnails in the expanded panel and create a pop-up window with setting sliders. a. The thumbnails are similar to Instagram filters: Warm and Cool colour schemes added to the image. Click each of them and then hit Default to revert to the original image again. b. Experiment with the White Balance and Tint sliders in the pop-up window. c. Remove the settings by hitting the Reset button. 13. The next adjustment is called HSL which stands for: Hue/Saturation/Lightness. Select it and again you will see some thumbnails show up and a pop-up window. Experiment with all of these options to see the psychedelic colours! Then revert (Reset) to the original image. 14. Skip the next 2 adjustments and select Brightness / Contrast. Experiment with the given thumbnails and pop-up window sliders. 15. There are numerous other adjustments in the list but we just tried some of the most important ones. Scroll down the list and experiment with any 3 other adjustments that sound interesting to you. Remember to Reset or Delete or Ctrl Z them after each one. Remember that if you can't get back to the original image after playing with the adjustments, just close the image without saving it and reopen it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
