Hue saturation set to -100 saturation and blending mode set to color.

Curves set to multiply.

Re: burn and dodge supported layers ?

i use two black layers bottom on set to color and top set to overlay, Gives alot of contrast but i fix what i see then i change the mode to soft light, which i fix problem areas then after that i just turn the top layer off then finish. Also have a white layer set to cant remember the mode off hand but its a negative layer for show brighter areas.

Re: burn and dodge supported layers ?

As a good samaritan, I have to tell you that this is not very efficient as you have three full resoulution layers.

If you like things this way consider:
Layer set to color>use hue saturation with saturation -100 with no mask

or

Layer set to color> solid color adjustment layer and use any color with saturation set to 0 with no mask

Same goes for your overlay layer, it can be a solid color adjustment layer filled with black, and no mask

Negative can be an invert adjusment layer with no mask

This way you'll save yourself 100-300mb per file.

Re: burn and dodge supported layers ?

Adding to what skoobey said, a tip I learned freelancing at a retouch studio is to set your layers to not have masks by default. I have to admit, I don't always do this because I'm lazy, but the logic is, not only does it save some file size, but sometimes in a file you find and area that just doesn't make sense, and you have to turn on/off layers one at a time to see which one it is. More often than not, what happened was the layer was set on the mask and you inadvertently touched it with the brush making an errant blob, and you never really knew it happened. No masks where none are needed mean fewer mistakes.
