When I think of changing the color in Photoshop, one would think there are no techniques left to learn. But it looks like you can always learn some new tricks. This one is particularly useful if you want to change a specific color, and you have an image with very complex selections. It’s relatively simple, and in this video, Jesús Ramirez guides you through it step by step.
There are a few ways for changing colors in Photoshop, and it’s not hard to do it. But when you want to change white into another color, it won’t always look realistic. In this video, Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect teaches you how to turn white into any color and make it look natural. And what’s more, you can even use this method to turn white into black.
If you want to add both contrast and a punch of color to your photos Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect shows you a technique you might want to try out. In this video, he teaches you how to use Color Burn and Color Dodge blending modes together to quickly boost contrast and color at the same time.
Just like many other adjustments in Photoshop, teeth whitening can look terrible if it’s overdone. In this video, Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect shares the best way to whiten teeth when editing portraits in Photoshop. It’s not just easy and quick, but it will also give you the best and the most natural-looking results.
It has been my experience that most people are cordial when they see you trying to capture a photo. They may pause until you are done or ask if you are taking a shot at the moment or apologize if they feel they accidentally walked into frame. Then again, I live in a place where we wave at strangers while driving just to be polite, so my sampling may be skewed.
But, what happens when you’re taking photos on a tripod outside a nuclear facility and the security personnel keep getting in the way of your pristine shot? (Buggers!) Well, you remove them. (EDITOR’S NOTE: “Remove” is not to be confused with “eliminate.” We are forbidden to advocate such actions.) In Photoshop. Greg Benz show us the rather straight-forward process which involves shooting multiple frames of your subject (whilst keeping the camera still, i.e. mounted to a tripod) as people are moving about within the frame.
Before delving into the mysterious world of photography, I started my visual arts career in graphic design and marketing, both freelance and on-staff. One request I became accustomed to was extracting all kinds of objects and people from all kinds of backgrounds and surroundings. Apart from “Make it look awesome,” this seemed to be people’s favorite.
There are many ways to mask and extract objects, and there’s really no “right” way to do it, so long as you find your method of choice effective. However, Aaron Nace of Phlearn (yes, we do seem to love Aaron) gives us an excellent tutorial on making a perfect selection in Photoshop using color channels, magic wand be damned.
If there’s one thing that all of us have encountered at one point or another it is going through the frames from a shoot and realizing that we forgot something important or could have done things a little differently.
When I first read the title of this video my mind automatically went in a completely different direction (my mind has a mind of its own, don’t judge me). In this tutorial, Photoshop guru and rocker of the man bun Aaron Nace gives us step-by-step instructions for bringing on the “high beams” of a vehicle after the image has already been taken.
“…If you’re saying in your head, ‘Oh, I’ll just fix that later in Photoshop,” stop what you’re doing and slap yourself as hard as you can.” –Zack Arias
If you’ve been reading my stuff for a while, you know that I’m a huge proponent of getting it right in the camera. Exposure, lighting, composition– all of it. As I tell my students, Photoshop is a tool, not a crutch. A bad photo is a bad photo, and no amount of post processing is going to miraculously turn it into a good photo. A good photo can very often be improved with a few well-placed tweaks and adjustments, but it’s just as easy to kill a perfectly fine photograph by going overboard in Photoshop. Still, though, photo editing is a fact of life and I think there are certain essential Photoshop skills that every photographer should know.
