About this Lecture:

I will show you how to take an underexposed image and get more details out of the dark and underexposed areas.

I'll begin with taking my raw image into camera raw, run a basic adjustment over it and afterwards open it in photoshop. Secondly I'll create some duplicate layers and rasterize these. Save my original layer as a smart object and take my third layer through the smart object button back into camera raw.

Brighten it extremely up " watch out for noise & halos " and bring it back to photoshop. Create a black mask and brush your details back with a white foreground color. Afterwards I'll do some fine-tuning and my image showed be better than before.

This technique results from a quicker and easier workflow with photoshop and a way to get details back out of an underexposed image.

About this Lecture:

In this photoshop lesson, I will show you a quick and easy masking technique to get a sliced photo effect. First off you will need to open Photoshop and import all your different exposures into one canvas and order your layers. Once you've done that, you are ready to start the masking technique! We will then apply hidden layer masks to all our layers. Once we've done that, we will go over to the ruler section and apply guide lines to our canvas. These will help us speed up our masking workflow. We will then take our "Rectangular Marquee tool" and create specific selections and delete these certain selections from our hidden masks. Once we are done with our deleting process, we will group all layers and create a master layer to keep our psd file clean.

Quick reminder: Don't forget to select your hidden mask on your layer, before deleting your selection.

14:43

About this Lecture:

In this photoshop lesson, I will show you how to add texture to a portrait. We will start by importing the two images into Photoshop (portrait & texture canvas).

Then in photoshop we will start with all small preparations on each image. We will also be cutting out the hand and create the perfect iphone screen shot. Once we have managed these steps, we will be putting all images into one photoshop window and build our final image. In this tutorial we will be working with adjustment layers, pen tool, selections, filters and some brush techniques.

    Not Great Experience

    The intstructor obviously knows his stuff however he just goes way too fast for me to keep up. I fend myself continually having to stop and go back and it is just so frustrating. I don't find that he explains some things enough and seems to expect you to know what he is doing. Sorry but this is just not the right course for me.

    I am very pleased with this course it offers so much Content!

    This course gave me more then I ever imagined I would get. I learned how to use Photoshop from start to finish all the way! "Thanks You" Not only how to Retouch images, but also loads of techniques, great PS tips and design. I watched most of his free youtube videos, but this course offers way more then his youtube channel. I really like how Manni literally teaches step by step what to do and how to do it. I only wish I had found this course earlier. Definitely recommend it. Thank you for this life skill Manni!
