How a photo becomes an aquarel in Photoshop.
We bring a bit of blue into the grey sky by emulating a blue gradient filter in Photoshop. We even try to stick a few clouds on it.
Increasing contrast is one of the simplest procedures in Photoshop. Now we introduce a less trivial way.
Basic sharpening procedures (e.g. Unsharp Mask) do not distinguish between details and noise, and therefore they sharpen noise, too. We step up and try to sharpen only the substantial details.
Noise: the bogeyman! We can almost see digital photographers shiver and shrink. Well, not those who read us. Photoshop tip.
When lighting is strong, you have to fight shadows, too. They might overcome for a time, but there is always a chance for another battle.
Sometimes you have to crop a photo’s outer parts to make it more aesthetical. This photoshop tutorial describes the simplest way to do it.
The photo is askew, but we boldly apply a simple and accurate remedy.
Annoying blue/purple strips appear on the borders of dark and light areas. Most of the time they can be reduced considerably, or even eliminated.
Fear not the annoying faulty pixels in your photos. The Photoshop article explains how to eliminate them with care.
