    Group function / Clipping mask not working

    Calvin_Ice

      Photoshop Elements 15.  Mac OS X El Capitan Version10.11.6

       

      I've watched numerous instruction videos and Googled for help but I cannot resolve the issue I have with the Group function.  As far as I know, I'm doing everything correctly.

       

      For example, I have a sunset scene and want to lighten the foreground without effecting the sky and clouds.  I select the foreground and create a new layer.  Then I create an adjustment layer and group it with the foreground layer.  Any adjustment I do to the adjustment layer changes all the layers below the group, not just the layers within the groups.  I've also tried creating a clipping mask but still have the same problem.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.  This problem is really reducing the utility of Photoshop for me.

       

      Thanks.
