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!

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 :)

    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 I've been experimenting with Photoshop for 4 or more years now, and I found myself constantly using the same techniques which did not help me progress and did not make my photos look too realistic. After coming across Phlearn, joining the daily discussions in the episodes and getting a Phlearn Pro video, I realized how much more there is to Photoshop. The episodes opened my eyes to new ways of editing a picture and making it stand out. Aaron covers absolutely everything there is to know about the program!

The Flood Pro episode that I have purchased showed me the process of making an image (explanation of the light sources was very helpful), as well as the post production. I learned how to make the model look perfect yet natural, I learned about making a composite and how to create a mood for the picture, as well as many more ways of creating a photograph that I still use today.

I highly recommend getting a Phlearn Pro to anyone who is interested in taking their creativity to the next level!

More Newbie to Phlearn. But with these first two purchases, I'm confident Aaron and Phlearn will be added to my list of 'e-Mentors' who have helped me grow. I just purchased Vintage Action.

What I love about it (besides the look) is that Aaron has left the layers editable....allowing me to continue to make the image 'mine'. Rather than my feeling I've pressed a button and now it's someone else's work.... on top of mine. Thankyou for that Aaron!

More I remember having Aaron's images in my collection of inspirational artwork on my laptop when I came to Australia to study Photography in 2008. I had no idea how that awesomeness could be created and was dying to find out. Needless to say, when Phlearn was born it was like a dream come true!

I absolutely love how Aaron is laid back and fun in his video tutorials, it just makes you feel like you're hanging out with a friend, who's teaching you some cool stuff - it's easy to comprehend, it's not tiring and every video is jam packed with golden nuggets of priceless information. The entire website is full of brilliant educational materials.

I wish Phlearn was created 5 years ago, it would have saved me a lot of time learning Photoshop!

Great job! The entire Phlearn team, you guys are amazing! Keep up the great work!

More Without Phlearn I would not be where I'm now. I spent hours watching your tutorials, enjoying the high quality and friendly atmosphere. If I need to know something Phlearn is where I look first.

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 have a lot of PRO tutorials, and they are all fantastic. The basic phlearn is great, but in the PRO tutorials Aaron goes much more in depth. In addition, in the PRO tutorials you can understand how to create a quality photo from the beginning to the end, and this allows also to understand the creative concept that there is behind all.

Some great skills in photoshop are explained and can be therefore applied to your shots. In one year, thanks to basic phlearn, but much more thanks to the PRO tutorials I bought, I reached a level in photoshop which I would have never thought I would have reached. :)

More People generally dont like being wrong, even worse we dont like admitting we were wrong.

I had been watching Phlearn for about a month or so before I bought my first Pro Tutorial. I had learned and grown so much just from the free daily shows I felt like I was getting way to much for free so I decided i wanted to support Aaron by buying a tutorial. So i picked one that looked interesting, thinking that for the price i would maybe learn a few extra tricks that didn't happen to make it in the daily show (or had been done in the archives). I was wrong. Very wrong and I will happily admit it!

I still use what i learned in that first tutorial in a large portion of my images along with all the other tips and techniques I've learned in all the other tutorials I've purchased since. In fact, there isn't an image I've made recently that hasn't had a touch or more of Phlearn influence and i couldn't be more grateful. Phlearn continues to help me get my images to where I want them to be, and also shows me where I've never thought of taking them.

I really can't express how valuable these Pro Tutorials are, at any price!

More The quality of tutorials and content that is produced by Phlearn is second to none.

After spending years watching tutorials on YouTube and buying expensive videos, I discovered Phlearn. The average Phlearn tutorial is much longer than any homemade YouTube tutorial. The content of each video is also much more in-depth.

It's unbelievable how many new things you can learn from each video. There's always a couple small things, that you pick up here and there, that you find yourself using all the time. This is in addition to all the extras that are included with the tutorials like brushes and actions.

The price point for videos in perfect, especially because I have paid hundreds and hundreds of dollars for 1-2 hour videos.

I am constantly telling my friends about Phlearn . I am found that both photographers and artists love it equally.

More It doesn't matter if you’re new to Photoshop or if you've been using it for years Phlearn’s Pro tutorials will teach you something new and help you understand the how, when, why of using each technique taught.

More Phlearn Pro tutorials are literally the best photoshop tutorials I found on the net. And I've looked hard. Of course they are not for everyone. If you are only beginning to learn photoshop, then I think, they are not for you. But if you know the basics, and want to learn how you can express yourself better using photoshop then there is nothing comparing to what Aaron teaches! For a very long time I've looked at incredible composites done in photoshop and dreamed to learn how they were done. These tutorials made it possible for me!

Thank you Aaron for your work!
