Determine a Name for the Localized Adjustment

First clearly articulate what you're trying to do - this may sound trivial, but it's often the most important step. A well-articulated name identifies the steps for the localized adjustment. Some name examples for localized adjustments are:

■ Darken the foreground

■ Add contrast to the person

■ Reduce the blue in the shadows.

All of these examples include a localized part of the image (foreground, sky, person, shadows) and a specific adjustment (darkens, make bluer, add contrast, reduce blue). Now you know what to select and the adjustment to perform on the selection. It's so much easier this way. You will also use the name for this localized adjustment when you create the adjustment layer later in this task list.
