PS3 - going back to adjust a layer

On a Colorization I am working on, I added a layer for skin tones as one of the first jobs. I have since added 10 adjustment layers.

I now want to go back and adjust the skin tone layer. If I select the skin tone layer and adjust, no adjustment is visible. If I uncheck the layers above I can adjust the skin tone layer, but when I check the other layers again the adjustment goes back to where it was.

How can I achieve what I am aiming for?

Re: PS3 - going back to adjust a layer

Mark that depends on what you have done in those layers above the skin tone layer. If those layers are all pass-through adjustment layers, then your adjustments beow should be visible. However if you have inserted some blocking layers, like a Merge-All layer then you will need to take a different approach which might require you to modify one or more layers so that it makes your layer stack non blocking or as some people like to term it "non destructive". If you would like to post a screenshot of your layers palette, I am sure members will have suggestions for you.
Regards, Murray

Thanks Murray. On each layer I have selected all and copy merged and then pasted to create a new layer.

Here is a link to the screenshot

Re: PS3 - going back to adjust a layer

If you are modifying the layer Skin Sepia and the changes are not visible check to make sure that:
1. check to be sure that one of the adjustment layers is not set to a blend mode which might be affecting everything below it
2. one of the layer masks above, especially in a recolor layer, is not exposing the same areas in the skin tone layer and therefore overriding your changes.
When you disable all of the above layers and turn them back on one at a time, does every layer block you skin tone change or can you trace it to one specific layer?
Regards, Murray
