  • 1.1. 2.OPEN a color photo edit this photo using the color editing techniques gone over in class 3. 4. 5.duplicate layer edit as a black and white image (do not use GRAYSCALE to change to black and white) duplicate background layer and drag this to the top edit this for COLOR ONLY use HUE/SAT, COLOR BAL, PHOTO FILTER change this LAYER BLEND to COLOR lower the opacity of the BLACK & WHITE LAYER to taste MERGE layers or use GROUPmake sure your image is FLATTENED after editing DUPLICATE your layer IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS EXPOSURE create an under exposed image by making it dark6. 7.DUPLICATE BACKGROUND and drag to the top IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS LEVELS8. 9.DUPLICATE BACKGROUND and drag to the top IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS EXPOSUREslightly brighten this image (very subtle)create an over exposed image by making it very bright10. This will give you FOUR LAYERS. Turn each of these LAYERS into a separate JPG file. to do this, simply TURN OFF the LAYERS that you do not want to see and then hit FLATTEN IMAGE repeat this FOUR times so that you have a file for each of your different layers I named mine: DARK, LIGHT, MID and ORIGINAL save these to your DESKTOP close all files in PHOTOSHOP11. FILE AUTOMATE Merge to HDR 12. Browse for your newly created FOUR files and LOAD them into the WINDOW press OK 13. the MERGE to HDR WINDOW opens allowing you to edit with the HISTOGRAM when done, change to 8 BIT in the PULL DOWN MENU and then hit OK 14. the HDR CONVERSION window appears edit to taste using the SLIDERS 15. IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS SHADOW/HIGHLIGHT edit to taste 16. HDR: High Dynamic Range: Think of a scene that has bright sunlight and dark shadows. A single image can't capture all parts of the scene in a proper exposure, but if you take a series of photos of exactly the same scene while altering the exposure between each shot, then later you can blend the images together in Adobe Photoshoporiginal

Create a silhouette from a landscape photoExtend the background, add other images (of clouds, other skies, etc.) and then reflect the imageUse COLOR ADJUST, ADJUSTMENT LAYERS, BLURS and LIGHTING EFFECTS to enhance the imageAdd a moon, stars, reflections in the water, by using MASKING TOOLS and LAYER BLENDING MODES Images from: http://www.psdtop.com/blog/photo-effects/the-magic-night/ 4. Use ADJUSTMENT LAYERS to change the colors of an image and isolate colors in a portraitUse images of nature and blend these into your initial image by using QUICK MASK or LAYER MASKUse the CLONE STAMP or ERASER TOOL to blend the nature images into the photo furtherImages from: http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/photo-effects-tutorials/nature-inspired-photo-illustration/ / 5. Use MASKING TOOLS to combine two images on a decorated background or textured backgroundCreate highlights and darkened areas using the PAINTBRUSH and LAYER BLENDING MODESComposite more images to fully realize the illustration background, details, objects, figures etc.Add further colors, BLUR EFFECTS, LIGHTING EFFECTS to enhance the image Images from: http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/photo-effects-tutorials/create-a-nature-inspired-photo-manipulation-in-photoshop/
