layers. One way to do it is to select the area as
described by Kathy, then with the selected area create
the adjustment layer. The mask will be created
automatically and you can still edit it by clicking on
the mask (next to the layer itself) for fine

already have the layers and the selection, it is
possible to re-select the specific area. Once you have
a selected area, the S/H settings are applied only to
the selection. It is possible (and recommended) to
achieve the same result as S/H with curves adjustment,
so there is no real need to use S/H other than it is
I prefer using adjustment layers because they leave my
underlying original image untouched and I can always
go back and change the adjustment layer mask and the
adjustment settings. The changes with S/H, as well as
the changes of
applied directly to the image are irreversible once
saved and can't be replicated easily to other areas of
the picture - all thing that adjustment layers and
their masks enable.

You can treat S/H as adjustment layers (which I use a lot) by copying your entire image
to a new layer and apply S/H to it. Then you can apply a Layer mask to that layer to
control where S/H should be applied. And you could adjust the Layer fill or transparency
(never see much difference between them..) and blend mode. If you need different S/H for
different areas you could just add a new layer/mask for each.
Layers and masks are great :)
