Image editing techniques can boost your digital photos or for that matter mar them. To get the desired results, you should stick to these top five non-destructive pixel-pushing methods.

Your pixels never did anything to harm you, did they? On the other hand, you are probably roughing them up every time you improve an image. When you directly adjust color, contrast or focus – all staples of image digital enhancement – it physically alters your original data (i.e munches your pixels). Now you may not really care so much about your pixels, however you certainly will when you realize you would like a “do over” and they shrug and say, “so sorry.” Thankfully, Photoshop has a whole lot of techniques that fall under the category of non-destructive editing or NDE. These Photoshop design techniques allow you to go ahead and make all the changes you want without laying your hands on your original data, and you can always go back and do touch-ups later on.

1. Do not slack! Keep a back up of your file for sure

The easiest start, of course, is to have a backup of your file prior to the start of the plundering process. We suggest this practice, notwithstanding whether you follow the remaining suggestions in this write-up. Then, always duplicate your background layer by dragging it onto the Create A New Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel prior to doing anything else. When you preserve that background layer, your Photoshop file will always include the original pixels.

2. Be fond of adjustment layers

You can get Photoshop’s image enhancing commands under Image > Adjustments from the main menu bar, as can be seen in Figure A. There’re adjustments to fix contrast, color, exposure, convert to black and white, and the like. The last adjustment, ‘Black and White’, is a great example of a problem with these adjustments. When you choose the Black & White adjustment, Photoshop, with some settings from you, converts your image to black and white, doing away with all of the color information. Therefore not only is the color information gone, the conversion settings are also a thing of the past.
