    Color blending collection 3
    The first tutorials for new year!  Color blending style is back with the third collection. Its one of my most favorite effects and i hope you will like them too .

    I. Soft high contrast photo effect:



    1. Open your picture and duplicate it. Choose Image-Apply Image:

    This step is to remove green tone and reduce blue tone of the pic.

    2. Create a new Selective color layer:

    Neutrals: 11, 3, 9, 0

    Its to increase light cyan tone.

    3. Stamp visible all layers ( Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E). Choose Channel Pallete, Ctrl+A to choose Green channel, Ctrl+C to copy it and press Ctrl+V to paste it into Blue channel. We have:

    This step is to change color of umbrella to fit background.

    4. Stamp visible again. Apply Gassian blur with 4 px then set this layer to Soft light 100. Press Ctrl+U to reduce the red tone on model face:

    5. Stamp visible once again. Apply Gassian blur with 4 px and set it to Hard light 20%:

    ( You can choose Soft light mode, it depends on your fancy or your own picture).

    6. New Selective color layer:
    Reds: 86, -23, 12, 0
    Whites: 0, -21, 0, 0
    This step is to reduce red tone on model to be suitable for background.

    7. In this step we are about to add rain effect to this photo. Its a very easy effect and most of you may know it already.

    Create a new layer and fill it with black ( Choose Edit-Fill). Apply Add noise filter:

    Press Ctrl+L to increase contrast and reduce "rain effect" intensity:

    Apply Motion blur:

    Set this layer to Screen 100%:


    Press Ctrl+L to increase brightness:

    Apply Gassian blur with 0.5 px to soften this effect to make it look more natural.

    Add layer mask and use soft black brush with 50% opacity, 50% flow to blur the rain effect on some parts of model:


    Final effect:


    II. Sweet spring sunshine effect:


    1. Open the model stock. Create a new Selective color layer:
    Reds: 19, -13, 14, 0
    Yellows: 0, -9, -32, 0
    Greens: 100, -82, -100, 0
    Neutrals: 4, 0, -4, 0

    This step is to increase Green tone also decrease the red tone on model skin and hair.

    2. A new Selective color again:

    Reds: -38, -23, 11, 4
    Yellows: -8, -36, -51, 0
    Greens: 100, -100, -63, 0
    Cyans: 0, 21, 38, 0

    Its to increase light yellow tone for skin, hair and cyan tone for background.

    3. Create a new Curves layer, click to choose Gray point:

    With the tool selected, click to pick skin color on model hand:

    We have the settings for Red, Green, Blue channel and result:

    Adjust RGB to increase the light:

    4. I do a small manip. Choose one from butterfly stock, move it and  resize it:

    Then Choose Image-Adjustment-Selective color to change color of butterfly :
    Reds: 100, -36, -67, 0
    Yellows: 100, -9, -28, -26
    Neutrals: 13, 13, 0, 0
    Blacks: 20, -14, 12, 0

    5. Create a new layer, use hard brush, 2 px and soft brush, 4 , 6, 9 px to draw on the pic, then set outer glow with default settings:

    6. New layer with settings:

    Use dodge and Burn tool to enhance the eyes.

    Final effect:


    III. Beautiful night light effect:

    Bokeh texture

    1. Open the image. Create a new Curves layer:

    Its to increase dark yellow tone of the pic.

    2. Create a new Selective color:

    Reds: -30, 34, 90, 0
    Yellows: 4, -26, 16, 20
    Greens: 100, -100, 100, 0
    Neutrals: 47, 0, 39, 0

    Its to add green tone for background.

    3. Make a new channel mixer layer:

    Red: 105, 0, 0

    Its to increase a bit of red tone on model face.

    4. Press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E to merge all layers. Choose Filter-Render-Lighting effect:

    Duplicate this layer and apply Lighting effect again:

    Add layer mask to erase hand:

    5. Stamp visible all layers. Apply Render-Len Flare:

    Add layer mask to erase the sun effect on model and the background:

    6. Add bokeh texure to main document. Set this layer to Screen 50%, then duplicate it and change mode to Soft light 50%. Add layer mask to erase effect on model, background.

    Final effect:

    dry Very nice tutorial except for 1 thing. I had to strain to read it. I would suggest using a different font, and one that's a bit larger.

    30 Admin   (2011-09-20 6:04 PM)
    The font is very big and clear for me ( i use Opera browser). You may set up a large size of font in your computer wink . Thank you for watching wink

    I don't know what "New Selective Color Layer" is. I have Selective Color Layer in Photoshop CS5, but it doesn't have RED, CYAN, WHITE, NEUTRAL, OR BLACK.

    you must be kidding...New Selective Color is created from New Layer-New Adjustment Layer-Selective Color. tongue biggrin
