We've shared many videos over the years which show off the power of curves adjustments in Photoshop. You can use curves to lighten or darken any part of your image and the adjustment can be as selective as you want it to be. By leveraging the power of adjustment layers and masking, you can make dramatic changes to the overall look of your image with only a few simple steps.

In the video below, Aaron Nace from Phlearn shows how you can use curves adjustment layers to selectively adjust exposure, brighten up a subject and add creative coloring to your image.
