Static Adjustments vs Adjustment Layer

In Photoshop there are two alternate modes of adjusting layers.

You can choose one or the other - they achieve the same effect, however one method is usually more desirable.

If you wanted to desaturate an image - a static adjustment is available just for this purpose under the Image menu. However, using an adjustment layer for the same purpose is just as quick and offers some other powerful features that help to make adjustment layers Kings of the Layers Panel.

To be sure there are times when you will want to use static adjustments - especially when dealing with layer masks and alpha channels, but most of the time the adjustment layer serves the same purpose and has the advantage of being adjustable at a later stage.
