N.S.L: WEEK 140 – Photoshop CC: “Apply Image” Great for Compositing

I’m a tutor so you’ll hear me mention that it’s best to learn your Curves and Levels for more control over your images. I couldn’t help it =D As an instructor, I HAVE to encourage folks to learn the Long Way aka the Old Way aka the Right Way =D … with that said, Apply Image has definitely sped up my workflow.
