In today’s episode, we show you how to use advanced color tools in photoshop.  We’ll show you a unique set of tools that allow you to choose complimentary colors easily.  We’ll also show you how to spice up an advertisement and how to work with your color library and color swatches in photoshop.

THE POWER OF COLOR

Colors are always a huge part of an image.  Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to choose the colors for your desired output.  The method we show you today should make this process a lot easier.  Think of it as a color wheel on steroids.  On the color wheel you’ll see each of the colors and their complimentary colors.  The photoshop version of this is a lot more precise because it calculates the exact complimentary color based off the color you choose.

GETTING STARTED

The image we work on today is one of our ads from The Ultimate Guide to Retouching.  We start off with white text in our ad.  The goal is to change the colors to colors that compliment our image.  In order to do this, we need all of our color windows in an organized format.  We start off by going to Window —> Library.  That pulls up our color library panel.  Next we go to Window —> Color Themes.  We move our color theme next to our library panel.  Finally, we go to Window —> Color.

  • Make sure to keep your workspace as clean as possible.  It will make you more efficient in the long run.

SAMPLING COLORS 

Next we grab our eyedropper and we click on the skin tone of our subject in the image.  Then we choose our preferred option from our adobe color themes.  Next we click on the “set selected color from active color” button.  From there we choose complimentary colors.  Now our adobe color themes panel shows us the complimentary colors based off of the tone we chose with our eyedropper.   Long story short, this enables you to sample any color in any document and find it’s complimentary colors based off of adobe’s precise calculations.  Now we click on the “add to library” tab and all of those colors will show up in our color library.

In today’s episode, we show you how to create a before and after image in Photoshop.  After that, we show you how to animate it as an animated gif.  Then to top it all off, we show you how to upload your .gif to Instagram.

GETTING STARTED

We start off with a normal .psd file.  We strip all of the adjustments off of the image until we are down to the original.  After that, we create a new layer within Photoshop.  On that new layer we go to Image—-> Apply Image.  From there you want to make sure your settings reflect the settings you see in the video.  Once you hit OK, you will get a copy of everything you see, on a new layer.  Now you have a before & after.  Next is adding the animation!

ADDING ANIMATION

Since our final destination in this case is Instagram, we need to create a format that we know will work well for  the application.  After we have our desired dimensions, we have 3 layers to work with.  A background layer, an original layer of our image with no changes, and the final image with the changes we’ve made in photoshop.  Turning these layers on and off will help identify which is our before and after.  Now it’s time to animate our image.  We use the video timeline to create a frame animation.  Frame animation just allows us to create individual frames.  Now we click—> Make frames from layers.  Now we have 2 frames in our animation, the before frame and the after frame.  We set the duration to 2 seconds, meaning every 2 seconds the frame will switch from before to after.

EXPORT SETTINGS

Now that we have our frames loaded into our animation, it’s time to make sure our export settings are perfect.  We changed the duration of the timeline to forever.  So now the image we see will constantly shift from the before to after.

UPLOADING TO INSTAGRAM

Next we show you how to email the file to yourself and upload the image to Instagram.  From there you can choose any filters or other options that Instagram offers.

Today’s episode is all about the difference between Flow and Opacity in photoshop.  Both Flow and Opacity are settings used for the Brush Tool.  The Brush Tool is one of the most commonly used tool in photoshop.  Knowing the difference between Flow and Opacity while using the Brush Tool will make your life so much easier when editing.  There are moments when using Flow is the perfect choice, and there are moments when it might not the best option.  Today we will discuss both settings, as well as show you a few different examples.

Flow vs Opacity, round 1!

So let’s break this down.

  • FLOW: Flow allows you to build up ink over and over again.  A lot like ink on a piece of paper.  The more times you go over something with Flow as your setting while using your Brush Tool in Photoshop, the more ink you are building us.  Imagine the effect a marker has on a piece of paper.  Every stroke lays down more in.
  • OPACITY:  Opacity is more of a computer generated way of painting.  If you painted a canvas with 50% Opacity, you couldn’t lay more ink down on your canvas until you picked up your brush and applied it again.  This method can be super useful in some cases, in others it might be extremely limiting.

So both Flow and Opacity can be great settings for the Brush Tool.  The key is to know when to use which setting and why.

And the winner is…

It’s a tie!  Both settings are extremely helpful when using the brush tool.  Now get out there and master them both!

“Do you think we got any bloopers..?” I don’t know, you tell us! And learn how to remove a tattoo in Photoshop while you’re at it.

Section 1: Basic Removal

For this first step, we use the Spot Healing Brush Tool. Be sure that this tool is set to the Normal Mode, and that the Type is set to Content Aware. Sample All Layers should also be checked.

On a new layer, paint right over top of the tattoo. It’s that simple! This works best if you do small sections at a time, making sure to include part of the original skin texture in your section. Sometimes the tool will pull areas from other parts of the photo that do NOT belong on skin! If this happens, don’t worry at all. All you have to do is paint right over it again.

After spending some time with this tool the skin will look blotchy and uneven. As explained in the episode, you might get the “toaster oven” effect. But, as long as the ink is gone, you are ready to move on to the second step!

Section 2: Painting the Skin

Retouchers are also painters! It’s time to bring out those paint brushes.

In this very important step, we will be sampling the skin and painting over the blotchiness that is left over from step one.

Select the brush tool and use a soft round brush. The size of the brush will depend on the area of the skin that you are working on, and also will take a little bit of trial and error.

To paint, sample a color of the natural skin by holding alt/opt and clicking on it. Then, your brush will pick up that color and you can paint over the uneven skin. This will take some practice so that the body doesn’t look completely flat! Just remember that highlights, shadows, and midtowns should all be paid attention to and treated differently. Look for the shadows and how they fall onto the skin – sometimes it is just a small detail but it can make all of the difference. For this example, we bring each tone all the way up the arm and into the shoulder.

 Remember that this is a gradual and gentle process. Set the Flow of your brush to be very low – somewhere between 5 and 20 percent is a good place to start. With a low flow, you are able to slowly build up the color of the skin. This helps to make it look more natural.

Section 3: Adding Skin Texture

After painting over the skin, it will look much too smooth and artificial. Step 3 is adding skin texture back into the image so that it looks completely normal.

Start by making a new layer and selecting the area around the body part you have been working on. Then, go to Edit – Fill – 50% Gray. Change the Blend Mode from Normal to Overlay. This is the base layer for the texture.

Now, go to Filter – Noise – Add Noise. Change the settings depending on what looks best for your image. We choose to select Uniform.

To add to the look of the texture, go to Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur. We add just a touch of blur (about 1 pixel).

Now, go to Filter – Stylize – Emboss. This is where the texture will really turn from just looking like noise to looking like skin! Go for an amount that makes it look as natural as possible.

Lastly, create a black layer mask on your current layer. Then, use the brush tool to paint with white where you’d like the skin texture to show up. You can use a low flow or opacity to build it up gently if you’d like.

Alright photographers, it’s time to talk about using protection…copyright protection that is! Learn how to add metadata to photos in Lightroom!

Section 1: What is Metadata?

Metadata is information that is stored inside of an image file. It’s not visible when looking at a photo, but it includes information about when and how that photo was taken. You can ADD metadata to images to protect them with copyright information. If anyone downloads your image from online, your name will be forever stuck inside of that image. HA!

To see an example of what this looks like, right click on a photo and select “Get Info.” You can open up the “More Info” tab and see things like the aperture and shutter speed that the photo was taken at!

Metadata can be stored in multiple file formats: JPEG, RAW, DNG, TIFF, and PS files all include metadata.

Section 2: How to Add Metadata

First we add copyright information by going to the Metadata tab and selecting Preset – Edit Presets. Under the IPTC copyright section, include:

  • Copyright – Copyright symbol, Your name, All Rights Reserved
  • Copyright Status – Copyrighted
  • Rights Usage Terms - All Rights Reserved, No Reproduction Without Prior Permission
  • Copyright Info URL – Your website

Now, you can add the creator information. Under IPTC Creator, include (at the very least):

  • Creator – Your name
  • Creator City – Your city
  • Creator Email - Your email
  • Creator Website – Your website

Lastly, enter this information into the IPTC Status Section:

  • Credit Line – Your name, Your Company
  • Source – Your name

That’s it! Remember, these are the bare minimums in terms of information. It’s always better to have too much than not enough.

Section 3: Creating & Syncing Presets

To save all of this information that you just typed in (because who wants to do that over and over), go up to the top of your Edit Metadata Presets window and select “Save Current Settings as New Preset.” You can just name the Preset as your own name, or however you will remember it.

To apply that to all of you photos, select one and then change the Preset Drop Down to the one you just made! Then, Press “Sync Metadata” and it will apply it to every one of your images.

Section 4: Syncing During Import

Click on “Import” at the bottom left of Lightroom. Then select the desired images. Now, select your new preset by opening the “Apply During Import” tab and selecting it from the Metadata drop down menu.

You can also create a preset for this process (for the extra lazy ones). At the bottom of the screen there will be an Import Preset box; select “Save Current Settings as new Preset…” from the drop down menu. Now, you can name that preset and use it in the future!

Section 5: Keywords and Cataloging

Keywords are another type of metadata! These can be added in Lightroom so that it is easier to search for a specific kind of image. It’s great for efficient organization! Under the Keywording tab, you can type in any words you associate with your images. To apply those keywords to ALL of your photos, Shift + Click on all of the images. Then, You can click on the individual words in the “Keyword Set” Box. This will apply those words to all of your images.

Section 6: Checking Online

So, you’ve entered in all of this data but how do you know that it’s really there? Well, if you’d like to check beyond Lightroom or Finder, we have found just the thing for you.

Open a web browser and go to “Metapicz.com.” You can upload your files directly to this site and it will display all of the metadata held within that image!

 

Have fun and use protection!!

From flyaways to frizzies, hair seems to never do exactly what we want it to. Learn how to shape and style hair in Photoshop in today’s episode!

Section 1: Shaping the Hair

The liquify tool will allow you to push and pull pixels. This is really great, but you never want to do this directly on the background layer. So, duplicate the background layer and work from that one. Then go to Filter – Liquify to bring up the Liquify dialogue.

The only tool you really need to use for shaping hair with Liquify is the Forward Warp Tool. It’s found in the upper left corner. You will notice there are many options for size, pressure, density, etc. (if you aren’t seeing those options, click on Advanced). For hair, we use a density and pressure of about 25. The size you should use varies greatly from photo to photo; you don’t want it to be too small and make a harsh warp trail, but you also don’t want it too large because it will move much more than you’d like. Play around with what size works best for the hair in your photo. Ctrl/Cmd + Z is your friend here!

We use this forward warp tool to push the hair down into a more orderly style. It makes the look a little more cohesive and “put together” looking.

As you can see, the liquify tool does the majority of the work!

Section 2: Clean Up

Next up is clean up! First, create a new layer. we have some residual hair floating above the model’s head, so we use the clone stamp tool to get rid of that. This works for flyaways as well! The hardness of our brush is around 85% so that it’s not too fuzzy.

To clean up the little light hairs that cross over dark hair and look distracting, create a new layer and use the clone stamp tool. The difference here is: change the Blending Mode from Normal to Darken. This magic technique gets rid of those light areas as soon as you paint over them! This can be tedious, but you can spend as much or as little time on this as you want.

Section 3: Fill in Blank Areas

Create a new layer and use the clone stamp tool to paint in another copy of just the hair. Then, bring in that new hair over on top of the actual hair. Then, add a layer mask and paint with white in the area that you want to fill in.

By default, layers and layer masks are linked together. But, you can unlink the two and move each one separately. To do this click on the little chainlink that appears between the layer and the mask. Then, select just the layer and you will see how easy it is to move just the new hair around!! You can even use the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) to rotate or adjust the hair inside of that blank area.

One more technique for styling the hair is creating more copies of the hair and using different blend modes (Darken, screen, etc).

Enjoy these styling tools, Phlearners!
