Use Adjustment Layers

Adjustments like Hue/Saturation, Brightness/Contrast, and Levels are typically applied through the Image >> Adjustments menu. But that's not best practice. What happens if you later decide to scale back that contrast change? You can't! Instead, apply adjustments as Adjustment Layers via the button found at the bottom of the Layers Box. Now your Adjustment is fully dynamic. Yay!
