So I just purchased the CS5.5 Master Collection, I'm an enthusiast :) I have a question pertaining to blending layers and applying adjustments in Photoshop. How do I apply an adjustment layer to a blended layer, while only having the blended layer affecting one layer beneath it, and then having the adjustment layer apply only to the result of that created by the blending? I know it's a mouthful...
I have three layers, from top to bottom: adjustment layer, blending layer, artwork layer. I have applied a gradient to the blending layer using the Vivid Light option, which in turn affects all the layers below it (I only want it to affect the artwork layer though). I then want to apply an adjustment to the resulting effect.
Apologies if I was vague, but my terminology on the subject matter is not yet up to par as I'm a complete newbie to this field. Please let me know if I can clarify anything.
