Today's Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 3 video tutorial shows how to create the attractive high key, high contrast, bright colour portrait style that's so fashionable at the moment with companies like Venture. In this one chapter tutorial I used Photoshop CS5 to produce the effect and then show how to do the same thing using Lightroom 3. These steps work equally well in earlier versions of Photoshop as far back as CS and Lightroom 2. Download the source image and try this yourself.
At last! Here's the final chapter in tutorial 7. In this show we cover selective blur and selective sharpening. And sorry it's late. I recorded this show before I went to Paris and then I forgot to encode and upload it before I went. So here I am launching it after I got back.
This week in the second to last episode of this tutorial I spend quite a bit of time explaining what I'm trying to do with the light on this image and this really is the heart of this edit. It's what makes the picture what it is. I also cover levels adjustment layers and how to spread the tones in the shot more evenly across the histogram.
