Today we complete our free photoshop video tutorial showing how we turned that badly exposed RAW file into a bright, colourful and interesting seascape. In this show we do some dodging and burning using a bitmap layer and then we use a curves layer with overlay blending mode to darken the corners as a vignette. Finally we use a neat technique for adding a lens flare to the image without the filter making a destructive edit.
