1 Do one of the following:

• Click the New Adjustment Layer button - at the bottom of the Layers palette, and choose the layer type you want to create.

• Choose Layer > New Fill Layer, and choose an option from the submenu. Then name the layer, set other layer options, and click OK. (See "Setting opacity and blending options" on page 295 and "Creating clipping groups" on page 319.)

• Choose Layer > New Adjustment Layer, and choose an option from the submenu. Then name the layer, set other layer options, and click OK. (See "Setting opacity and blending options" on page 295 and "Creating clipping groups" on page 319.)

Note: To confine the effects of the adjustment layer or fill layer to a selected area, make a selection, create a closed path and select it, or select an existing closed path. When you use a selection, you create an adjustment layer or fill layer confined by a layer mask. When you use a path, you create an adjustment layer or fill layer confined by a vector mask.

2 Choose from the following layer properties, and then click OK.
