How to Correct Red Skin Color in Photoshop Quickly
 
05:55
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou It's time to correct red skin captured in your images. Here is how to do it, quickly. One of the problems you will encounter when photographing people is skin redness. It usually shows up around the nose, close to the eyes and on the cheeks. Skin that looks too red can make people look tired, sick, old, or just bad. Thankfully there is a simple fix that will work every time. Using a Hue/Saturation Layer In this episode we show you how to use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to pinpoint the redness and get rid of it for good. We start by selecting REDS from the drop down menu that is on MASTER by default. After selecting the reds we bring up the saturation as high as possible to see what colors we are actually effecting. Then we use the slider on the bottom to narrow in the focus of color and move it left and right until only the area we want to change becomes highlighted. After the selection is bright red, bring the saturation back down to 0 and adjust the Hue slider to the right. In this image we use a +25 Hue but that will change depending on the colors in your image. Once you set the Hue correctly you are done!

The Amazing Power of Frequency Separation Retouching in Photoshop
 
14:09
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou What is Frequency Separation? Frequency separation helps make retouching a portrait easier in Photoshop. Frequency separation works because it allows you to separate the texture of an image from the tone and color. When retouching you can focus on just the texture or the skin beneath it. Master Frequency Separation Here: https://phlearn.com/tutorial/amazing-power-frequency-separation-retouching-photoshop/ Download the Free Frequency Separation Action Here: http://phlearn.com//freq-sep-action-free It sounds quite complex but in practice it is quite simple. If you want to work with texture, choose the high frequency layer, if you want to work with skin choose the low frequency layer. Getting Started with Frequency Separation To get your image set up for frequency separation you will have to make 2 copies of your background layer. If you are not starting from the beginning, add a Stamp Visible layer over all layers by typing CTRL+ALT+OPTN+E. One of these copies will be for your low frequency (skin) and one will be for your high frequency (texture). First apply a Gaussian Blur to the lower (low frequency) layer. Choose a radius that blurs out the skin texture, but don't go too far as to make the face unrecognizable. Next choose your high frequency layer and go to Image, Apply Image. Here you will want to se the Layer: to the low frequency layer. For blending choose Subtract and for Scale:2, Offset:128. These will be your settings every time, no need to change them. Now you should have one layer with a blur (low frequency) and a layer above it that looks mostly gray (high frequency). Select the high frequency layer and change the blending mode to "Linear Light". Your image should now look identical to the image before you started the process. Correcting Underlying Color To correct the underlying color (skin) choose an area with the lasso tool. I suggest feathering the selection to make it look more realistic. Use Q for Quick Mask as a quick way to see what your selection looks like. After you have made your selection choose the low frequency (blurred) layer and apply a Gaussian Blur in the selection. Choose a radius high enough to blend the tones together. Repeat this process over different areas of the portrait to smooth the skin tones. Because the texture is on a different layer, it should stay in tact during this entire process. Correcting Texture If you need to correct texture, we recommend waiting until after you do the tone. Select the high frequency layer and choose the Clone Stamp Tool. In the Clone Stamp Tool settings be sure to hit Sample: Current Layer. This will make sure you are just using the texture and not sampling anything else. Then on your high frequency layer sample good skin texture using ALT and then paint over "bad" skin texture. This will work very well for stray hairs, acne, wrinkles and other small blemishes.

How to Color, Brighten and Sharpen Eyes in Photoshop
 
11:55
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Make Eyes Look Amazing in Photoshop If you have ever seen amazing eyes in a photo there is a good chance that it has been edited in Photoshop. Enhancing a person's eyes in Photoshop is a quick way to make an image really stand out. In today's episode we show you how to use the natural colors of an eye to enhance its color depth. You will also learn how to properly dodge and burn an eye to make it stand out. Coloring the Eye There are many ways to color a person's eye in Photoshop. This method uses the natural color of the eye as a base for new color. Start out by creating a new layer and sampling the color from the inner part of the eye. Next open your color palette and increase both lightness and saturation. This will give you a more vibrant version of the same hue. Then paint over the inner part of the eye, covering where the original color was. Do this a couple of times, sampling colors from around the eye. After all of the colors are painted, change your layer blending mode to "Soft Light" or "Overlay" to allow the color to blend into the eyes. Then make sure to use "Gaussian Blur" to soften the edges of where you painted. The eyes should be quite a bit more vibrant but still look natural. Dodging and Burning the Eye In this episode we use curves adjustment layers to brighten the center part of the pupil and darken the outer edges of the pupil. This change will give the eyes more depth and light. Sharpening The final step is to sharpen the eyes. You may already be sharpening your whole image, but just sharpening key areas (like the eyes) is a great way to draw more attention to those areas.

Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Phlearn PRO Photoshop Tutorials View Our Bestselling Bundles - http://bit.ly/1Abrt1R We're old schoolin' it in today's episode as we show you the fastest way to dodge and burn in Photoshop! To start out, duplicate the background layer by pressing Cmd/Ctrl + J. Next, desaturate that layer by pressing Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + U. On that layer, change the blending mode to Vivid Light. Now, go to Filter -- Other -- High Pass. This is the same technique you would use to sharpen an image; the only difference is that we are going to bring the radius very far up. This focuses on the details in a broader way. At first, this effect will probably be much too intense. So, to have more control, create a layer mask and then paint back in what you want to be visible. You can also change the blend mode to something like Soft Light if you want a more subtle look. That’s all it takes to dodge and burn quickly in Photoshop! Website: http://phlearn.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Phlearn Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/116791098...

How to Remove Bags and Blemishes using the Patch Tool in Photoshop
 
06:53
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Using the Patch Tool The patch tool is perfect when you need to retouch a large area. After you have created a Stamp Visible (Shift+Alt+Optn+E), make a selection around the area you would like changed. These areas will include skin blemishes, under eye bags, wrinkles, dark spots, scars etc. After making your selection, click and drag inside of the selection to a similar area that does not have any blemishes. The Fade Tool The Patch Tool is not perfect, sometimes the blending won't look uniform. In this case the best option is to face out the patch effect until it does blend smoothly. You could use things like the eraser tool or a layer mask, but the Fade Tool is the best option. You will be able to see your changes in real time and it will allow you to continue patching on the same layer.

How to Cut Out Hair in Photoshop
 
12:52
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou When cutting out hair from a background, it is helpful to keep in mind that it’s much easier to use dark hair against a light background or light hair against a dark background. Selections To start, find the color channel which shows the maximum amount of contrast in the hair. Duplicate that channel and bring up the levels panel (CMD/CNTL + L). We can bring the black point up to create very intense contrast in the image. The darks should be extremely dark but be sure not to overdo it! A good way to check is if the edges of the hair look too coarse, you can decrease the darkness a little bit. All of this is done in the channels tab, but it needs to be turned into an actual usable selection. Hold CMD/CNTL and click on your channel copy. This selection will remain, and you are able to go back into the layers and edit from there. Click on the layer mask icon, and everything that was dark will turn invisible. All you have to do is invert the selection (CMD/CNTL + I). If parts of the image are transparent that shouldn’t be, you can paint over the layer mask where it needs to be filled in. To take care of fringing (light or white part around the edges of the hair), clipping masks will come in handy! -Create a new layer -Right click, and select “create clipping mask” -Use the brush tool or clone stamp tool to fill in the white areas Now, whatever work is done on that layer will only apply to the underlying layer. In other words, your new layer is clipped to what’s under it. Change the clipped layer from normal to darken- this will only effect the whitest part of the hair. Use the clone stamp tool to paint over the light parts of the hair.

How to Reduce Noise in Photoshop
 
11:42
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Reduce Noise in Photoshop The best way to reduce noise in an image is to shoot with a low ISO in camera. The camera creates an exposure based on three values - ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed. ISO is the only variable that will result in noise. Ideally, one would adjust the shutter speed and aperture (to let in enough light to create an exposure) at a low ISO to prevent image noise. The best ISO settings to use for lower noise levels are 100, 200, 400 and 800. Anything above that is likely to create noise on the image. Cameras are getting better all the time, and there will come a day when ISO 6400 looks perfectly clean, but until then, keep ISO as low as possible! Reduce Noise Filter The first step in removing noise in your image is to use the 'Reduce Noise Filter'. In the 'Reduce Noise Dialog' one can control strength, preserve details, reduce color noise, and sharpen details. The strength of the filter determines how much it reduces noise - go as high as you need to remove noise, but don't over-do it. Bringing the 'Reduce Noise' lower will make the filter more effective, but will also reduce detail in the image - find the balance that works best. If there is a lot of color noise, use the 'Reduce Color' noise option to remove it. Also, there is an option in 'Advanced Settings' to reduce noise on each color channel individually. 'Sharpen Details' will add artificial sharpening to your image after the 'Reduce Noise' filter is added, so it's best to keep this at zero. Using the Surface Blur to Reduce Noise If there is still noise after the 'Reduce Noise' filter is used, adding a Surface Blur may help. The key to using a Surface Blur to reduce noise in photos is to balance the radius and threshold. If the threshold is too low, the image will not be effected. Threshold controls where the blur will stop. It uses differences in tone to find edges, and tries to preserve those edges. The higher the threshold, the more separate elements in the image will blur into each other. The Blur radius determines the area that will be blurred - the larger the radius, the more blur. It's best to bring both of these values as high as possible without destroying image details.

How to Whiten Teeth in Photoshop
 
12:20
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Whiten Teeth in Photoshop You’ve asked, we’ve answered! In today’s episode, learn how to whiten and straighten teeth in no time! Selecting the Teeth Make sure to start off by selecting the teeth, so they can be isolated for the color work. The initial selection doesn’t have to be perfect as you can go back in and refine the mask layer. For this specific image, we use the lasso tool. Now that we have a selection, we want to turn it into a layer mask. Make a new layer and press CMD/CTRL + G to group that layer with itself. Then, hit the layer mask button. Now, all the changes you make will only apply to the layer mask. This is a very important step and is extremely helpful later on! Tackling Color Make a new hue/saturation layer mask, and drag the slider almost all the way to the left. Decrease the saturation a little bit as well. You do want to have a tiny bit of color in the teeth, because no one has completely desaturated teeth. Grey teeth would be a very scary sight. Lightening the Dark Areas Make a new curves adjustment layer and drag the middle of the curve very far up. At first this will look really horrible, but don’t worry! Double click on that layer and select the Blend-If window. Here, you can hold ALT/OPT and drag the bottom right slider to the left. If it goes too far though, the darkness will come back into the teeth so be sure to find a happy medium. Lightening the Light Areas For this step, use the marquee tool to select a box around all of the teeth. Then hit Shift + Delete and choose Fill With White. Now, use the same Blend-If technique as before but bring the left slider to the right Straightening If you need to straighten teeth as well, make a stamp visible layer by pressing SHIFT + OPT + CMD + E. This will be the layer that you alter the shape of the teeth on. Go to Filter - Liquify, and make adjustments with your brush as needed on the teeth. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VISIT PHLEARN.COM FOR MORE FREE TUTORIALS https://phlearn.com SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL FOR MORE FREE TIPS AND TRICKS http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=phlearnllc GET FREE TUTORIALS IN YOUR EMAIL + DISCOUNTS ON OUR PRO TUTORIALS! https://phlearn.com/mail BUY THE TABLET AARON USES! https://phlearn.com/tablet LET'S BE FRIENDS!

How to Remove Wrinkles in Photoshop

I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Remove Wrinkles in Photoshop Retouching wrinkles on someone’s face can be a very *touchy* matter! Today we show you how to both completely remove wrinkles as well as reduce them in a more subtle manner. Complete Removal The healing brush tool is our best friend in terms of removing wrinkles! Be sure to use a brush size that is slightly larger than the wrinkle, and then sample a color right below the wrinkle to paint over it (Alt/Opt + Click). Make sure to select “Current & Below” for the sampling. This technique must be used very carefully, as it is easy to make an elderly face look too smooth. A More Subtle Approach For a more natural approach, we can use the clone stamp tool. Duplicate the background layer (Cmd + J) to work on a layer with pixels. If you are on a new layer rather than a duplicated one, this technique will not work. Also, be sure to select the “Lighten” Mode; this paints over the wrinkle in a less obvious manner to conceal the lines. This tends to be a quicker process than using the healing brush tool, because it simply lightens to darkest parts of the wrinkles and does not pull skin texture from other parts of the face.

Using the Clone Source Dialog The Clone Source Dialog is available by going to 'Window - Clone Source'. Here you will see options for Clone Source, Transformation options, as well as overlay options. We go through each of these options and show you how we set up our Clone Stamp tool. Photoshop has the "Show Overlay" option checked by default however we prefer to keep it unchecked. The overlay can get in the way and is always available by hitting OPTN + SHIFT. Adjusting Clone Stamp Selections After using the Clone Stamp Tool to cover the lapel microphone there are still some adjustments that need to be made. It is best to use the Clone Stamp tool on new layers so you can transform the selection afterwards. To do this hit CMD + T then right click on the layer. You will be able to rotate, skew, transform and warp the selection so it fits with the image better. After getting the Clone Stamp selection in place we use a great technique to blend exposures. Some areas of this layer need to be lighter and some need to be darker and we accomplish this using a combination of a brush tool set to blending mode "Soft Light" and the "Lock Transparency" Option in the layer dialog; This will allow you to only paint over non-transparent pixels. We then paint black and white over the layer to brighten or darken it accordingly. Use Clone Stamp with Different Brushes Many people think that you are limited to a soft round brush when it comes to the Clone Stamp tool. The Clone Stamp tool can use any custom brush the regular Brush Tool can use. Try adjusting your brush shape or creating your own custom brush to best complete your project.

How to Select and Change Colors in Photoshop
 
10:18
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Selecting Color Range To select out the different colors, create a new layer and go to Select - Color Range. Click on the color you want to sample with the regular eyedropper tool. You can play with the fuzziness to get more of an accurate selection. Also, if you need to add or take away from your selection, you can use the eyedroppers with the plus and minus symbols next to them to do so. Next, go to Layer - New Adjustment Layer - Hue/Saturation. This will load your selection directly into the Hue/Saturation layer so that you can adjust the hue sliders and change only the colors you want to change! Refining Layer Masks If you have small unwanted parts in a selection, you can always paint over it with a brush tool on the layer mask. Tip: If you hold alt/opt and click on a layer mask, it will appear as black and white. This can be very helpful for seeing tiny stray colors in your selections.

How to Clean Backgrounds in Photoshop
 
10:24
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou The white background has become a standard in the photography world and for good reasons. You can pick up a white seamless background for less than $100, turning any space into a photo studio. Backdrop paper is also ideal for cutting people out of their backgrounds or eliminating distractions. Many popular celebrity portraits were photographed in hotel rooms using a roll of white seamless paper. Because your subjects will be standing on a giant sheet of white paper, chances are the paper is going to get dirty. In today's episode we show you how to clean a backdrop in Photoshop. Clean Backdrop using Median Filter The fastest way to clean a background in Photoshop is by using Photoshop's Filters. We found that the Median filter works very well and saves a ton of time. Go to Filter - Noise - Median and choose a radius that will make all the dirt vanish. Be sure to do this on a copy of your background layer so you can use a layer mask and just have this effect show up over the background. If you have any areas that the Median Filter missed, take care of them with the healing brush tool and you are good to go!

The Best Way to Watermark Your Images in Photoshop
 
08:22
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou The Best Way to Watermark Your Images in Photoshop With the rise of blogging and media sharing websites like Pinterest and Tumblr, it has become more and more important to protect your images. In this episode, we show you an easy way to watermark for photos! How to Make a Custom Brush of Your Logo First, place a black version of your logo onto a white background. This logo can be something professionally made, or your signature created using a tablet. Make sure your image size is relatively large, so you can scale it down rather than up and get the best image results. Five hundred to a thousand pixels large works great. Then, go to 'Edit - Define Brush Preset' and name your brush. Your brush tool will now be in the shape of your logo. Go to your Preset Manager to adjust the order of your brushes and bring this custom brush up to the top of the list. How to Adjust Your Brush to Add a Watermark Use the brush tool to paint the logo onto your image. If you create a new layer first, you can transform the size and blending mode of the watermark after the fact. Overlay is a great mode for keeping it subtle. Then, select a major color from your image and set the watermark to that color in order to further blend it with the image. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- VISIT PHLEARN.COM FOR MORE FREE TUTORIALS https://phlearn.com SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL FOR MORE FREE TIPS AND TRICKS http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=phlearnllc GET FREE TUTORIALS IN YOUR EMAIL + DISCOUNTS ON OUR PRO TUTORIALS! https://phlearn.com/mail BUY THE TABLET AARON USES! https://phlearn.com/tablet LET'S BE FRIENDS!

Why You NEED to Calibrate Your Monitors!
 
06:46
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou So, What’s the Deal with Monitor Calibration? The Calibrator in the Video: http://amzn.to/2xUKLln Low-Cost Alternative: http://amzn.to/2jPh3rF To be honest, I have spent years editing photos without ever calibrating my monitor and I thought I wasn’t missing out on anything. It turns out, I was wrong. As it turns out, even a high-end monitor will degrade over time and colors won’t render properly. The calibrator we test in this video is the Datacolor Spyder5Elite, which is an external device that measures color and light emitting from your monitor and then makes software corrections to make sure you are properly displaying color. We have gotten so many requests to make an episode on monitor calibration that we couldn’t ignore them. We called up Datacolor and asked if they would send us one of their calibrators and sponsor a review, and we are happy they said yes, because this thing really does work. They shipped one over and sponsored this video in 24 hours! Here is the deal. After running the calibration software on multiple monitors and a laptop, it became obvious via the before/after images that the colors on the monitors in the before were horrible, even on a $1,000 Mac Thunderbolt Display. Most notably, the reds were washed out and rendered way too much green. This is a big deal, because people’s skin is primarily red, meaning the monitors in our studio have been showing inaccurate colors for years! Quick Tip: Use the included software to sync multiple monitors together if you are using more than one display.

How To Do Focus Stacking in Photoshop
 
12:31
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou In today's episode, we show you how to do Focus Stacking in Photoshop. We also give you some pointers on how actually shoot the images you'd need in order for Focus Stacking to work. We even briefly jump into Lightroom to show you how to prep your images. With a little help from our Game of Thrones figurines, we are ready to deliver an awesome episode! What is Focus Stacking? Focus Stacking is a technique where you can combine many different photos taken at various focal points. It's commonly used in macro photography where you have a very shallow depth of field. By combining multiple photos together you are able to extend your depth of field and get more in focus within a small frame. Focus Stacking is a great way to control what's in focus in your image. Capturing Images for Focus Stacking Focus Stacking is done in Photoshop, but in order for Focus Stacking to work you need to know how to shoot the images. So in today's episode, we give you a brief rundown of how we captured the images we used. With the help of some Game of Thrones characters we were able to create a little scene perfect for an example. We definitely encourage our Phamily members to get out there and have some fun with Focus Stacking. Not just in Photoshop but also in the Photoshoot process. Here are some things you'll need in order to capture footage for your Focus Stacking: A sturdy tripod (You'll need your scene to be relatively still in order to really achieve this effect. A sturdy tripod is one of the best ways to ensure your framing is consistent.) A couple pocket wizards (This is totally option, but it was another way for us to get our hands off the camera, ensuring that the camera is shifting positions. We connected the pocket wizard with a shutter release cable and we were good to go!) Shoot in "MF" also known as "Manual Focus" (Shooting in Manual Focus will allow us to move the focal ring of the lens while taking the pictures. The reason that we aren't shooting in Auto Focus is because Auto Focus would override what we are trying to accomplish by slightly moving the focal ring. Manual Focus gives us complete control of our depth of field.) Capture images for Focus Stacking (There is a technique when it comes to Focus Stacking. Our advice is to choose your earliest stacking point, take a picture, rotate the focus ring a little bit, take another picture and repeat this process.) Bringing Your Images into Lightroom So now that we have our images for our Focus Stack, it's time to prepare them for photoshop. Our first stop is Lightroom, now only are you able to get an idea of the images you want to use for your Focus Stack, but you can also select the exact images you want to export to photoshop. We export and resize our images and now we are ready to rock in Photoshop. Stacking Files in Photoshop Now in Photoshop, we are ready to load all our images together. If we go to File - Script - Load Files Into Stack. This allows us to load all our images into one big stack instead of loading them individually. From there you can browse your files and choose the folder with the images you selected from Lightroom. There is an option in the Load Files Into Stack dialog box that says "Attempt to Automatically Align Source Images." We do recommend having that box checked. Once you hit OK, Photoshop loads all of those images into one stack. Now that we have the images loaded, we need to combine them all into one image. Focus Stacking in Photoshop The first thing we do is select all our files. We click on the first, hold down Shift, and then click the last to select all our images. Next we go to Edit - Auto Blend Layers. The two options that are now available to us our Panorama and Focus Stacking. We check the option "Seamless Tones and Colors" and hit OK. Now Photoshop goes to work, it takes the parts of each image that is in focus, then it creates a Layer Mask only revealing the part of the image that is in focus. Photoshop will use this technique on every photo in your Focus Stack. This automated process would be nearly impossible for us to do on our own. At the end of the process, we have our very own Focus Stacked image! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for watching Phlearn!

6 Ways to Take Better Portraits with Reflectors

The inner surface of these reflectors is almost always a diffusion panel, meant to have light shine through the light before it hits your subject. The outer surfaces come in a variety of colors – usually, you will see gold, silver, white and black. Each of these will bounce light in their own way. Now, just because there is a product for photographers called a “5-in-1 Reflector,” that doesn’t meant you can’t use anything else to reflect or bounce light. Aaron breaks down all the interesting ways you can use your 5-in-1.

How to Remove Acne in Photoshop

I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Remove Acne in Photoshop Anyone who has gone through puberty knows that acne can stand out in a photo. Don't let those spots get you down! In this episode we show you how to get rid of acne and pock marks in Photoshop. The key to removing acne is to divide the process into two steps; The first step is to get rid of redness and the second step is to remove the blemishes. How to Remove Redness Half of the battle is removing the redness around acne and it can be difficult if you don't use the right tools. In this episode we show you how to use Hue/Saturation to target specific areas of red and alter them so they look like normal skin tone. Removing Acne Blemishes After removing the color it is time to remove the blemishes. Adobe has done a great job with the spot healing brush in recent versions of Photoshop (CS6, CC, CC2014). It makes removing zits and blemishes very easy as long as you check a few settings. Be sure to select "content aware" and "sample all layers" so you can use this tool on a new layer and not destroy your original layer. Simply paint over the blemishes to remove them. We suggest removing small spots first and then moving to the larger areas. To finish off the job, zoom out and paint larger areas. This will help to even out uneven skin tones. Adding Red Back to Skin In the first step we removed all the red from the skin. This is a necessary step when getting rid of acne but you will want to add a bit of red back to the skin to make it look more realistic. The difference is that the original red was blotchy and very saturated. This red will be softer and more subtle. Choose the red color from the lips and paint over the subject's face, then change the layer blend mode to Soft Light and reduce the opacity to 20%-50% or until the skin looks natural.

How to Color Tone Using Gradient Maps
 
10:55
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Color Tone Using Gradient Maps Quickly color tone your images using gradient maps. Create your own custom gradients or choose from many pre-loaded options! How do Gradient Maps Work? A gradient map matches light levels to different colors. It analyzes the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows in your image and maps them to different colors. The original colors in a photo will be replaced with the colors in the gradient map. How to Adjust Gradients To adjust a gradient map, double-click on the layer thumbnail and then click on the gradient. You can choose from pre-defined gradients or create your own. To edit an existing gradient, click on the color swatches below the gradient, which will bring up another color box. Click on that color box and use the color editor to choose a new color. You can also move the color swatches by clicking and dragging them from left to right. To add a new color swatch, click right below the gradient in the location you would like to add a new color. How to Load More Gradient Maps Photoshop comes pre-loaded with a few gradients. To add more gradients, click on the gear icon in the gradient editor. You can choose to load gradients from your computer or add them from a list at the bottom. Click on the list you would like to add, then choose ‘append’ to add them to the list of available gradients. In this episode, we use ‘Color Harmonies 1’ and ‘Photographic Toning’.

How to Create a Beautiful Fantasy Sunset Effect in Photoshop

I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Create a Beautiful Fantasy Sunset Effect in Photoshop Adding a sunset effect to a photo can be done in a couple of easy steps, and makes a huge difference in a back-lit image. First, make sure the image is lit from behind so the sun is visible. Next, create a custom radial gradient to mimic the sun. The gradient should go from white, to orange, to red. Then, add a layer mask so the sun only shows up in small circe. Blur the circle, and the sun is complete! Follow the rest of the tutorial to color-match the image to the sunset. Download the Custom Gradient Here! https://phlearn.com/create-beautiful-sunset-effect-photoshop Coloring the Image to Match the Sunset After applying the sunset gradient to the photo, it is important to color match the rest of the photo. Use a 'Color Balance' adjustment layer and click on "Highlights' to increase red and green levels, and to decrease blue levels. If needed, mask in the area around the sunset for better color matching. Add Blue to the Shadows Blue and gold look great together, and adding color into the shadows of an image is a great way to introduce complimentary colors. To create a 'Cross Process' color effect, start by making a new 'Solid Color' adjustment layer and choosing a dark blue. Change the blend mode to 'Lighten' and it will only show up in the shadows of your image. After creating the 'Solid Color' adjustment layer, it is easy to change the color. Double click on the adjustment layer and choose a new color from the color picker window. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VISIT PHLEARN.COM FOR MORE FREE TUTORIALS https://phlearn.com SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL FOR MORE FREE TIPS AND TRICKS http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=phlearnllc GET FREE TUTORIALS IN YOUR EMAIL + DISCOUNTS ON OUR PRO TUTORIALS! https://phlearn.com/mail BUY THE TABLET AARON USES! https://phlearn.com/tablet LET'S BE FRIENDS!

Now we’d suggest you try your absolute hardest to capture these elements in camera, during the actual photo shoot. But sometimes you just can’t, that’s where we come in. We start off with selecting our image. The image we chose was perfect because the sun is actually visible in the image. Next we sample a color from the sun in the image. We do this so that the color of our light rays are the same color as the sun. This makes the effect look more believable. After having our color sampled and on a New Layer, we begin to create a Custom Brush. The Brush Tool typical writes in lines. But we want each stroke of our Brush Tool to leave a trail of little dots. We are able to do this by adjusting our Brush Options Creating a Custom Brush We start of by adjusting our Shape Dynamics. We boost our Size Jitter all the way to 100%. Then we bring our Minimum Diameter all the way down. The idea when creating a Custom Brush is to get as much unpredictability as possible. We also adjust our Scattering so our dots are farther apart. We then adjust our Spacing and that really helps spread out our dots. Keep in mind that the idea is for each of the dots to become a light ray. Creating Light Rays So now it’s time for us to create light rays on our image. We start off by scattering a bunch of little dots across our image. We do this in the most random fashion possible. Next we decide to add a Radial Blur to our dots. We play with our options in our Radial Blur to see what we’re working with. We click on the Zoom option and bring the amount to 100%. Next we choose our Blur Center. It’s a good idea to place your Blur Center right on top of the light source in your image. We adjust the Lightness of our light rays and we are good to go!

The BEST Way to Sharpen Portraits in Photoshop
 
13:09
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Download the sample image here: https://phlearn.com/tutorial/best-sharpen-portraits/ After spending long hours on a photo edit, sharpening is the best way to enhance all of the details you worked so hard to preserve It’s also a great tool to help guide the viewer’s eye to the subject of the image. In this tutorial, we show you the best sharpening method out there to target and highlight the details that matter. Sharpen with Precision Before you start sharpening, there’s two important tips to keep in mind. First, sharpening should be the very last step in your post-processing workflow. Make sure to take care of all of the retouching and coloring first – that way you only end up sharpening details that you intended to be in the final image. Second, sharpening should be done according to whatever you want the size of the final image to be. For example, you would sharpen a full-sized print differently than you would an 800-pixel wide version for the web. So if you’re exporting several different sizes, be sure to sharpen them all separately after you’ve cropped and resized. It takes more time but will make a significant difference in the quality and impact of the sharpening.

How to Stretch Images using Content Aware Scale
 
09:47
I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou Have you ever really needed to extend the background of your image, but not wanted to spend hours with the clone stamp tool? If so, today's episode is for you! Learn How to Stretch Images Using Content Aware Scale! Preparation We start out with a square image that we would like to extend. It is a great example because we want to stretch out the water and sky, but not the person standing in the center. If you have a highly detailed photo that you want to stretch, the content aware scale tool will not be the best option. If it's simple open space, however, like a sky or the ground, it will most certainly help you out! You can do this both horizontally and vertically. Start by extending the canvas behind your image. You can do this by using the crop tool and just widening the background. Hold the edge and drag it to the left or right. TIP: Hold Alt/Opt while doing this to extend out evenly from the center. Duplicate the background layer by holding Cmd + J. To test out how incorrect the photo will look with the normal transform tool, you can press Cmd + T and stretch the image out to the new width. Yuck!! It will not look good at all. This is where Content Aware Scale comes in! Content Aware Scale Go to Edit - Content Aware Scale. Now, you can drag the edges of the images outwards and the most important information will stay intact (human figure and the pier) while the more simple information (sky and water) will be extended to hit the new borders. It creates a much more natural look than the previous example! Protect Your Important Information! You might notice that when you used the Content Aware Scale tool, there were parts of your image that were warped or slanted a bit. To truly make sure the items you don't want to stretch stay protected, it will just take a few extra steps. Make a selection of the object you would like to "protect." In this case, it is the man and the pier. Load this selection as a Channel. To do this go to the Channels tab, and create a new channel. Your objects should still be selected! You will see a completely black screen with marching ants around your objects. Hold Shift + Delete and select Use - White. Now, your objects will be white on a black background. Go back to your regular layers tab. Go to Edit - Content Aware Scale, and select your Alpha 1 channel under the Protect drop down menu. Scale the image just as you did before! The objects you chose to "protect" should not move, and you will have a more successful final image. As you can see in our example, the before and after images are only different in their cropped size. The goal is to have the end image look completely natural, and not give away the secret that you've stretched it out! TIP: Sometimes you just can't scale as much as you'd like. A helpful hint is to scale it halfway, stop, and then start over and scale it the rest of the way. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for watching Phlearn!

How to Add a Colored Background to a Portrait

I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How: https://phlearn.com/aaronwillteachyou How to Add a Colored Background to a Portrait it Photoshop Add a splash of color to your photos by replacing the background. Learn how to quickly add a colored background to any portrait in Photoshop! How to Cut Out the Subject When cutting a subject out of their background, there are different techniques based on the complexity of the background. If the subject is photographed on a simple background similar to the image in this tutorial, simple selection tools like the Magic Wand Tool will work well. For complex backgrounds, we recommend using the Pen Tool. https://phlearn.com/use-pen-tool-photoshop After making a rough selection of the subject in a photo, use the "Select and Mask" tool to refine the edge of the selection. Add a Splash of Color to the Background Once the subject is cut out from the background, the possibilities are endless. From here, you can add another photo as the background of a photo, or a simple colored background to simulate a studio photo. To create a colored background, go to 'Layer - New Fill Layer' and choose a color. Place this layer below the layer with the subject and the new color will appear behind the subject. To add a bit of realism, add a vignette to the borders of the photo. Go to 'Layer - New Adjustment Layer - Hue/Saturation' to create a Hue/Saturation. Lower the lightness and saturation then use the elliptical marquee selection tool to create a selection around the center of the image and fill the selection with black. To make the vignette more realistic, add a gaussian blur to the layer mask.

How to Swap Heads in Photoshop

Check out some of our awesome Photoshop products here: http://bit.ly/1wX5X45 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Why in the world would you want to swap out someone’s face?? Besides it being tons of fun, it can be extremely helpful in things like family portraiture. If you want to replace someone’s closed eyes with open ones, or replace a crying baby with a happy one, this is the technique to use. First, drag the image with the good face on top of the image with the not so good face. Make a selection around the head, and hold Cmd + J. This will duplicate whatever is selected onto a new layer. Now, lower the opacity of the layer so that you can place it directly over the other face. If needed, transform it to be larger or smaller so that it matches perfectly. Create a layer mask on the layer. Then, paint with black wherever you don’t want the layer to show up. One tricky thing you’ll most likely run into is knowing where to stop. Ideally, you’ll keep as much of the original image as possible. Play around with blending in things like hair and clothes to help you out. If there are problem areas, you can use the clone stamp tool as a back up, cloning in any areas that need to be covered. You can also play with exposure and coloring to match the new image with the old one. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for watching our free Phlearn Tutorials!

Working with Dark Areas It can be extremely annoying to deal with dark areas of an image. Using Curves isn’t always the best option because the highlights of the image tend to get blown out as well. We ran into this same problem when trying to use Levels to brighten up dark areas. So with two of our most commonly used techniques rendered useless, we had to find another method that would brighten up the shadows without blowing out the highlights. Shadows/Highlights Our best option is the Shadows/Highlights options. This allows us to only effect the shadows or only adjust our highlights. This is an extremely powerful tool because of the precision is gives us when working on an image. There is even a way to bring the color back into our image which really helps tie it all together.
