    How to handle multiple image montage with color corrections

    lisaellensegal Level 1

      I am using Photoshop CS5 and am creating a photo montage poster with about 30 images on it.  The photos are not stellar and I need to change levels, exposure, saturation etc to each image.  I was creating groups from layers for each image then dropping it onto the montage file, but I see that filters effect every layer below.  I have a gradient layer as my background and I don't want it affected nor do I want every layer below affected.  I created smart layers from each image, that works, but it really slows the system down.  What is the smartest and most efficient way to handle this?
