    Default // photoshop tip week 1 //

    each week i will post a tip that i have personally found useful in my trial and errors with the program in hopes that other designers can use it aswell. the tips may be small or big depending on the user.


    photoshop tip week 1 - New Adjustment Layers with Render Clouds.


    i use this alot when coloring my images... it can be used to color individual images or a the whole design.

    when coloring go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance

    it will open up this box:





    at the bottome where it says Tone Balance you have Shadows, Midtones and Highlights.


    choose Highlights first and move the sliders around to get a desired color tone. Press enter.

    Repeat several times ... choosing Shadows and Midtones...

    i usually do this atleast 3 times ... one for each setting. sometimes numerous time can achieve better results...

    once your finished with the coloring you should have several New Adjustment Layers... now press the D key on your keyboard to reset your colors.

    no go to Filters > Renders > Clouds. apply that filter to each of the New Adjustment Layers in your layer pallette.

    it will soften each of the color tones and make it more pleasing to the eye... this can be done to single images aswell as whole designs.

    also, sometimes it helps to Desaturate the image first. that can be done by going to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate

    or shortcut Shift+Control+U



    mess around with the different settings for coloring and you may find this useful. i use this alot and can really good results.

    so till next week...

    peace//
