Some people asked me how i made some blending photos so today i will
show you the first collection of my color blending tutorials that have many different effects. Its not
difficult techniques but i hope you still find them fresh and useful.
1. Romantic purple blue effect:
- After opening your pic, create a selective color layer:
- Create a new Hue/Saturation layer, its to adjust cyan, blue and magentas tone:
If your pic has high contrast you should not adjust Blacks channel.
- Create a new Brightness/contrast layer, you can skip this step if your pic has a good contrast: -2/8
I use soft black brush to erase the hair.
- Create a new channel mixer, its to make the model's skin look better:
- Create a new layer, set to soft light 50%, use soft white brush to paint on the dark area of her left forehead:
Then create a new layer, set to Color 30%, choose soft brush, color fdceec to paint on the blueish area of her left shoulder.

hi! I am really amaze in all your works. Can i ask a question? about the LIVELY LIGHT EFFECT, where can i find this one "- Create two new selective color layers: - Reds: -60, 28,85, -13 Yellows: -100, 50,-51, -41 Whites: 100, 0,0,-25 Neutrals: 6, 0, 0, 0
- Whites: 15, 0, 0, 0
I am new in photoshop so i really can not find it. Pls help, i will really appreaciate this.
Go to Layer-New adjustment layer-Selective color : On the first selective color layer, you fill Reds, Yellows, Whites, Neutrals, then make second Selective color, adjust White channels with parameters above. But remember that if your own pic does not have Whites tone, you should not adjust White channels.
