Simple but effective retouching work in Photoshop. If you havn't used layers and blend modes then try this and there are a few sneaky little tips in here as well. IR72 and ND110 filters polished so off out to the great outdoors for some scenic landscape photography.
Looks like it's Photoshop waffle time again and here's one that, if you have Photoshop loaded, you can play along with and create something new from your original file. As ever these are unscripted and if things veer off then all that's included. Things happen, catch the wrong key, click on something you shouldn't well...I think it's all part of learning Photoshop and sometimes those 'accidents' can lead on to a new way of presenting your images.
Few notes before we start..shortcuts used are Ctl/J or Cmd/J for a new layer ,Ctl/T or Cmd/T for the transform option, shift and drag, mouse down shft/ctrl/alt/E for a stamped layer copy and probably a few others..okay pin them back it's video time
Okay any questions fire them off and I'll sort it, time now for some coffee.
So Imentioned Adobe Exchange and I thought I might as well run up a quick video on how to use it and maybe show you all the flexibility and creative aspects of working with just a few layers...so here we go...I'll start off with a simple mono landscape I shot earlier this summer up in Camusdarach on the North West Scottish coast.
So just a quick one but maybe a help in getting your creativity going. If you do use this and publish just put a link back to this so other folk can benefit...cheers
Morning all, another week and i need to send out a bucket load of marketing emails, or maybe eat toast and drink coffee instead....hmmm anyway well into the latest batch of CS6 youtube tutorials and here is another new one.
I won't say this will change your life but it might give you an idea of how powerful CS6 is when it comes to working on your images. I'll be getting stuck into Portrait work this week so I'll keep you posted and maybe get the courses back out there seeing as we are just about getting to the back end of the really grim weather.
well I must say I've had a lot of fun and also some jaw dropping moments working my way through Lightroom 4.2. Yes, I know, I'm late to the party, loved my workflow from LR 3.6 into Photoshop and back again but now things have changed......
I've embraced DNG...no loss of quality and a smaller size, there's only one winner there...saving from Photoshop and back into Lightroom for noise and cropping in a totally non destructive way..very nice especially as I have set up some Export templates...
But the greatest thing and I really mean this is it's Camera Process 2012 version...there are files that were in the 'Grr too hard to get something out of pile' that now spring to life in LR4, I'm impressed big time. I'm posting some bite sized Lightroom tips and i may even set up a Lightroom page...yes I'm that impressed especially when you consider what a dyed in the wool Photoshop diehard I am...here's a bit of bite size ...okay Youtube has just gone tit's up so you'll have to wait but just check out my Youtube tutorials...any problems ask and I'll do a quick video.....here's a LR4 processed image that was about 4 stops under and flat as a pancake
Okay Youtube is back online.......
I was trying to get things down to a minute but 2 minutes is short enough for todays generation of flitters and flighters....
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
