PRO Photoshop Tutorial

If you are interested in shooting Vintage Fashion images like the ones you see gracing the pages of Vogue, Elle, V, and W Magazines, this tutorial will show you how to get from a snapshot to the final image. Learn every step along the way, going from Lightroom where we create a custom preset that is yours to keep, to Photoshop where you will learn how to identify and fix distracting elements.

Take a look at the Step-by-Step animation below and you will see that we start off with an image that is far from incredible and turn it into a work of art. You will now be able to do the same with your images.

Bonus: 2 Free Textures, 1 Brush, and 1 Lightroom Preset.

Learn From Start to Finish

Color and Light

Fashion images often involve a lot of color subtlety, it is what sets them apart from editorial images. Most of the time, the highlight and shadow colors have been completely changed. There are usually many colors mixing together to make the final image have that “Vintage Fashion” look.

You will learn how to work with color in a very easy way, including instructions in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

Adding Details

In this image we identify areas that are too light, some that are too dark, and others that don’t have enough detail. Then we go in and fix each of the problem areas Step-by-Step. In this example we copy the flowers from one part of the image to another, and transform them to make it look like they are originals.

Independently Color Objects

In this image we go through a great method for coloring complex objects such as hair. If you have ever tried to do this sort of thing you may notice that the end result can come out looking flat. That is because color does not change uniformly from highlight to shadow. You will learn how to properly color and avoid this problem all together!

Drawing Attention to Your Subject

We include 2 Free Textures for you to add to the foreground of your images. In this photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to to take a normal photo of a plant, cut it out of it’s background, color it correctly, blur it, and add it to the foreground of another image. This will give the effect that the camera is shooting through leaves, and will add depth to the image.

You can also use this effect to draw attention away from a particular area of an image, so the viewer will focus where you want them to. In this image, we cover up part of her dress because it is so light that it is a little bit of a distraction from her face.

Add Soft Light

The light that is coming in from the right side of this photo is completely fake, it was done in Photoshop. The trick with adding light to an image is color matching it to the rest of the scene to make it believable. You will learn how to accurately judge color and how to pull this effect off every time.

Free Lightroom Preset + Brush

If you are a lightroom user, all you have to do is load the free preset on your images and it will transform their colors to give them a Vintage Fashion feel. We do cover all of the settings so you can apply them in Adobe Camera RAW in Photoshop if you prefer. We also include a great soft edged brush that is perfect for editing skin if you use a Wacom Tablet.

Skin Smoothing

When editing an image that is not a headshot, a lot of people look over skin retouching. Most of the time it is not the individual pores that need work, but the overall shapes. You will learn how to smooth skin in Photoshop for this type of image. It is quick and easy and makes a huge difference!

Free Plant Textures

These plants were photographed in the Phlearn Studio and are very high quality images. You may use them for what ever you see fit. Because they are photographed on a white background, they are very easy to cut out of their backgrounds and apply over other images. In this tutorial we use these plants in the foreground to add depth to the image. A slight blur and color change and it is as though they were there all along!

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'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 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 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 Hi, my name is Jandrie, and I am a phlearnoholic. I have downloaded a total of 30 Phlearn pro's, and every single one of them has been great. They go into detail, from start to finish. They don't only show the cool things, but also take you through the less exciting bits of making a great image. I have learned to take my time, and think about the image, does the image make sense.

The Pro Tutorials also showed me what was possible in photoshop, which is very handy when doing a shoot, so you know what you can fix afterwards. It also shows a great attention to detail. Since watching phlearn, my images have improved out of sight, and it's all down to Aaron and the team. I would say it's almost like having an unfair advantage. I can thoroughly recommend Phlearn PRO.

More At first I thought this PHLEARN guy was off his ROCKER and had a lot of girlfriends. I quickly realized he means business. Phlearn is our go to resources for all things photoshop.

'Phlearn It' has become part of our every day vocabulary. Keep up the great work Aaron...you whacky b@stard.

More I am from Mexico, i found out about Phlearn watching the [Framed] show staring Aaron Nace. What attracted me to the site was the creativity he injects in his projects. Actually, i was looking for something like that, a way to create cool ideas and translate them to a story through photography, and that's what i feel Aaron does with his work.

Also, i was looking for a tutorial on how to enhance skin dodge and burning, so i decided to buy the tutorial here. I found it very useful because it encourage you to use your hands to paing... almost literaly, paint with a tablet. So, so far, Phlearn is a site that i stop bye every day.

Keep the good work!!!

More I found many new and unique editing and photography ideas that have opened up my portfolio into so many new and fun directions. I really like how every element isn't just pitched as a new trick or gimmick but a group of many final elements that are layered to create a wonderful image. There is so much useful information on the web but it seems as though it is very condensed and clear on this website. The tutorial and clips are very easy to follow and help you produce your own creative ideas.

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 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.
