New Adjustment Layer

This option allows you to control light and dark.

For example, the "Brightness/Contrast" option allows you to increase/decrease the brightness and contrast within the image, and the "Hue/Saturation" option controls colour using a colour spectrum, allowing one colour to dominate.

"New Adjustment Layer" creates a new layer and will affect all the layers created unless you combine a Hue/Saturation layer with the specific layer upon which you want the effect to take place. In order to do this, select the "Hue/Saturation" layer, hold the Shift key, and click on your chosen layer (these selections will be highlighted in blue), then right click to select "Group into New Smart Object" from the pop-up list.
