Editing photos to make them awesome Part 2


I had talked about three editing tips for photos. This post I will continue with it and add some more simple but effective tips to make photos awesome.

Utilizing HSL option

Utilizing HSL option in Adobe Photoshop – The sky is one feature in a photo that can make it really shine. A contrast between cloudy sky and clear sky can be achieved easily using the HSL option in Adobe Photoshop. Just select Luminance and drag the Blue slider to left side. The sky is automatically darkened. Easy isn’t it!

Adding style

Adding style – You can easily make your photo stylish by using very common features in Photoshop. Keep brightness to +25 and contrast to +35 and saturation to -25 to get the best of colors. Then adjust the curves by choosing Red first and drag to the center. Move blue and green bar a little upward, always watching its effect. Last step is to select the soft light blending mode.

Adding some special effects

Adding some special effects – If you want to add alien ships to a jungle scene or wings to your sisters’ back this is possible with Photoshop. Just find the right picture and blend to get the special effect. This feature can also be used to do realistic tattoos on you which are actually not there. Cool right!
