PRO Photoshop Tutorial

This is a Photoshop tutorial covering how to turn a regular photo into a fashion image. You will learn how to cut a person out of their background including getting the difficult parts like hair. We cover the most important parts about replacing a sky in a photo including lighting and color. You will be successful in changing the sky in any photo after watching this PRO Photoshop Tutorial.

You will also learn how to make and use textures, color an image for fashion, and work with blurring to draw attention to your subject.

Bonus: 12 Textures are included free in this tutorial for your use on any photo!

Thanks to all who entered the Facebook contest to have your image made into a Phlearn PRO. Brandon Johnson won the contest, and this is his image.

Learn From Start to Finish

You will learn every detail necessary to go from beginning to end in this special fashion tutorial.

Skin Retouching

In this PRO Photoshop Tutorial we cover a very quick and easy method for skin retouching that is perfect for when your subject is a little farther from the camera. You will be able to retouch faces in less than 1 minute using this technique!

Make Amazing Layer Masks – Including Hair

It can be very difficult to cut people out of their backgrounds and preserve all the detail from the original photo, especially places like hair. You will learn how to capture perfect detail in your layer masks, allowing you to keep the original hair even while placing it on a new background.

You can see here that the model’s hair extends over the type perfectly.

How Blur Can Help You

Using a creative blur in an image can help draw attention to one part of your image, while taking attention away from another. If you are working with people, this can mean looking at a face instead of a foot.

You will learn the most important parts of using a blur, and making it look as though it is a part of the original photo. We include 12 textures for you to add additional effects over your image!

Match Your Subject’s Color to the Background

If you are going to replace a sky in your photo, there are many things that have to be taken into account. The sky is the primary light source for the scene, and all of the elements in the scene need to reflect the color and light of the sky in order to make a believable composite.

We cover the most important ideas behind how to color a subject to the sky, so you will know how as well as why.

Text Effects

Type can be just as dynamic as the rest of your image if you allow it to be. Instead of going with a solid type that doesn’t interact with the background, we use techniques like blending modes, and some layer fx to make the type a part of the image. As you can see here, the type changes color as it interacts with the background.

12 Included Textures

Not only do we include 12 free High Resolution Textures, but we also go in detail on how to use them with any image!

Feel free to use these textures on your images, they are yours.

    Hey Aaron,

    Just finished watching the “Fashion” Pro tutorial. This is an excellent episode, covering incredibly useful techniques in a clear, concise manner. Awesome Job! This was well worth the purchase.

    I’m not sure if this is best place to get an answer to this, but if anyone can help I’d appreciate it! I keep getting stuck on the red channel layer mask for this tutorial when trying to clean up the hair, it just doesn’t look the same as Aaron’s one when I start playing with the levels, its the model’s face that changes colour, not the background, if that makes sense? So the dark/light contrast around the hair is nowhere near as defined. And then when I try to brush the white on over the mask it doesn’t just bring the hair back in, it brings the whole background in so defeats the whole purpose. It worked perfectly on the other side with the blue channel….I’ve tried it about 6 times and started from scratch twice. I’m definitely missing something, just not sure what. Anyway, there’s my little ramble and I”m off to take another stab at it, LOL! :-) I doubt anyone can help, but any ideas let me know!

    yo! this was my first phlearn tutorial. really, really awesome! best 20$ i ever spent (i bought 5 for 100$) – so i decided to use a photo of someone with glasses and i was wondering if you had tips for making the white reflections in the glasses somewhat match the atmosphere. i knew going into it that it would be an issue but i still wanted to use it. ideas?

    This looks looks like a great tutorial. I think I will make it my 9th pro. I was wondering though if the site has any more videos directed towards making images for building a website, or would this be my best option. I’m learning how to make a website and the tutorials here are always awesome!

    I’m in the middle of watching this tutorial and had to stop and comment because I love it so much. You are my absolute favorite Photoshop “instructor” (who seems more like a friend) because you are so enthusiastic and you get straight to the point. Thank you for keeping these reasonably priced when they could be sold for sooo much more!! You’re awesome :)

  • Gaëtan

    The french channel f/1.4 recommended me phlearn, and after buying this first pro tutorial, I understand why. It not only show you how to get this image, it explains a lot about lights, … And about technics, It shows you great way to save hours. before this tutorial, I used a lot curves, but this tutorial explains you how to save hours for cropping the girl in less than 5 minutes without any use of curves, and with an amazing precision on hair. And on many things, it explains the why to do, and way other ways are not so good.

    Aaron, I just discovered you for the second time, and I start to be addicted ! Very fun way to learn (and yes, you can be proud of what you do), but with lot of explanations that are very clear (I’m not an English native), and that you can easily adapts to your own picture.

    Thanks Aaron !

More Muchas veces pasaba por mi mente el deseo de encontrar una página en la que pudiera encontrar tutoriales distintos, fáciles pero de gran ayuda... necesitaba que alguien me dijera: "Abre photoshop sin miedo, eres capaz de crear todo eso que imaginas" y entonces encontré Phlearn, el lugar que brinda todo tipo de conocimientos sin ninguna restricción, un libro abierto con todos los tips necesarios para crecer en el arte digital junto con miles de personas más.

He seguido a Phlearn desde entonces y debo admitir que gracias a los tutoriales he mejorado no sólo mis habilidades en photoshop sino que también he ampliado mis conocimientos como fotógrafa. Aaron hace cada tutorial algo interesante y algo personal, puedes sentir que te está hablando a ti, que realmente estás ahí en vivo aprendiendo paso a paso con él sin importar de qué país vengas o en qué lugar estés siempre y cuando tengas las ganas de materializar lo que imaginas en fotografías.

Phlearn me ayudó a pensar libremente frente a la computadora, aprendí que no hay límites para editar o retocar alguna fotografía y a no tenerle miedo a Photoshop.

Ahora puedo hacer que mi hermana vuele, que las modelos respiren bajo el agua, que lluevan dulces o que la piel de cualquiera luzca como de súper modelo... es como saber hacer magia.

More The amount of knowledge you learn from the Pro videos is invaluable.

I would encourage it to anyone who is just starting out - or for anyone that wants to take their craft to another level, this is the place to start. Right here at Phlearn. You will learn techniques that you had no idea existed in Photoshop!

You have taught me so much and you guys are just incredible for sharing your knowledge with us, not asking anyting in return. You've showed me things I hadn't even considered to think about and I have to say THANK YOU for being just awsome! I'm very proud to be part of the Phlearn Phamily!

More I appreciate the quality/thoroughness of the pro tutorials here at Phlearn. They are a phenomenal value for the money. I should know -- so far I've purchased 11 of them.

I've purchased many photoshop tutorials and PHLEARN is (in my opinion), are the best value for the money by FAR.Love the entire Phlearn site as well. If there is time in my day to only check out one site, It’s going to be PHLEARN.

Thanks to you and your team for all you do!

More I have been using Photoshop for a few years, but have just started my first 365 self-portraiture project. Wow, It takes a lot of work to make me look like I want to look. Once I found Phlearn, it was like an addiction. There is so much useful information on the site, and Aaron is truely talented and amazing (and a little crazy).

After watching hours and hours of free videos, I downloaded the retouching pack from the Pro Tutorials. There is so much information in there about what to look for, how to fix it, some truly amazing techniques made simple. Now, I just have to figure out how not to end up with a blue face, but artistically, I don't think Aaron can teach me that. Just practice. I am at the beginning of my photography journey, but learning by leaps and bounds, thank you Phlearn, and Phlearn Pro Tutorials.

More I'm a working photographer who has been learning Photoshop for at least six years and my long term objective is to get to the level of those that do composite work for big brand names in their ad campaigns. I did manage to get so far by watching hundreds of video tutorials out there in internet land but eventually felt that many in the industry were still protecting the insider’s knowledge. Then came along Phlearn out of the blue breaking the mould in revealing the magician's code of Photoshop advanced techniques via their excellent free and Pro tutorials. They also guide you on all the other stuff you need to know like conceptualizing ideas, cost of doing business, etc. The vast majority would charge for what you get in a lot of Aaron's free tutorials and you have to agree that the Pro tutorials are available at a very modest cost or the price of a few beers when on sale.

More I've been a photographer for a long time and have been using Photoshop since its first incarnation. I thought I pretty much had it covered. Turns out, not so much. I'm pretty new to the site but I have learned so much from watching Aaron's free videos that it was a simple decision to purchase the PRO tutorials and I'm so glad I did. The quality of the production and level of content is awesome; in depth but clearly explained.

Aaron has such an easy, natural way of presenting information that you can't help but feel you're being personally tutored by someone who really knows and loves his craft.

Save your money on books, stop looking at 10 minute blurry Youtube clips and spend some time with PRO. You'll learn more from one PRO tutorial than you will from most books out there combined. Where can you possibly get between 2-3 hours of professional tutoring per video that you can refer to over and over again for under $25 (even cheaper when he has a sale)? 'Nuff said.

More Several years ago, when I first got into photography I looked online for tips, tutorials and so on, but there was very little good information out there. Then I took Aaron's class that he used to teach and I started watching Phlearn when it came out and my skills dramatically improved in the whole understanding of photography, along with my photoshop abilities.

I have been using photoshop for 8 years now and ever since I took Aaron's class and watched some of the Pro tutorials, I have become significantly more fluent in photoshop. It's funny because when I feel I understand how most conceptual images are put together and edited, Aaron comes out with a new technique that changes my whole perspective.

More I have been a photographer for almost 12 years, currently in grad school and have yet to encounter tutorials that blow my mind like Phlearn's. I am addicted to downloading tutorials, even if it's material I have learned at the academy.

Aaron's easy to follow videos are perfect for serious artist. I am currently a finalist in Canon Project imagination because of the material I have learned on this site.
