    What is the purpose of duplicating the background layer? Since a hue/sat adjustment layer was used, and it comes with the mask to paint the adjustment only where you want it, I was confused by duplicating the background layer when nothing was done to it. Doesn’t that just add to your file size?

      Hi CJ, sorry for the super late reply!!! I like to have the adjustment layer as an insurance policy of sorts. If I totally screw it up I can just delete it and my file is still complete below. I don’t worry about file size as I flatten as soon as I do what I need to do and just save as a jpg. I’m not touching these files again after I edit them the first time.
