When creating composites, it’s important to match the colors of the shots to make the result look realistic. There are several techniques for doing this in Photoshop, and in this video, Aaron Nace of Phlearn will show you a rather simple one. He’ll teach you how to match colors automatically in just a few clicks.
If you want to change colors in your photos, you may find color inspiration lying in other images. If you want to copy the exact color from one image to another, Colin Smith from Photoshop Cafe has a tutorial to help you do it pretty quickly and accurately. He uses a Curves adjustment layer and works in Lab mode, and he teaches you how to apply this technique to flawlessly match colors between two images.
There was a time when shooting with multiple cameras was a luxury. Limited to big budget TV shows, Hollywood movies and live broadcasts. These days, most of us reading this site have at least two cameras. A DSLR or mirrorless and our phone. Many of us also have a backup camera, a drone, maybe an action camera or two. Suddenly that’s 5 or 6 cameras and all of their footage is different from each other.
Editing this footage together can result in a mess of clashing colour and contrast, taking our viewer out of the experience. But it is possible to make them match, and in this video from Matti at TravelFeels, we find out how. It’s not that difficult to do, and while Matti uses Lumetri in Adobe Premiere Pro, the principles are the same regardless of what you use.
