2 MAKE A ROUGH BORDER Grab the Graduated Filter tool and load it with -4.0 exposure, then drag a tiny gradient near the edge of the frame. Move to the next edge and add another, then keep going around the edges a few times until the border is complete. 3 USEFUL SHORTCUTS FOR GRADS You can use the Graduated Filter to enhance a sky by selectively darkening Exposure or increasing Clarity. You usually want the adjustment to run perfectly parallel to the horizon, so hold down Shift while dragging a Graduated Filter adjustment to keep it horizontal. If you hold down Alt while dragging the grad adjustment, the blend begins centrally instead.
