how do i access color/brightness/hue/contrast adjustments?

Recommended Posts

I've been using photoshop for years. thought I'd try affinity because there's no subscription. I figured out a lot of it. But for the life of me, I can not figure out how to make basic color/contrast... adjustments to a specific layer without those adjustments being applied to all layers. I tried moving the background layer so it will be above the adjustment layer - but then the layer I'm trying to adjust disappears.

If y'all can't answer this question, maybe you could suggest a simpler photoshop type software that is more intuitive?

The tutorial videos might help to learn the basic workflows fast.


You can nest adjustments to specific layers or groups, this will restrict their impact to those layers.

Special interest into procedural texture filter, edit alpha channel, RGB/16 and RGB/32 color formats, stacking, finding root causes for misbehaving files, finding creative solutions for unsolvable tasks, finding bugs in Apps.

thanks for the link. lotsa  info there. After spending much time there, i finally found the appropriate video:

but I gotta say, that process is WAY more complicated than photoshop. Still hoping to find a better photoshop alternative.
