I thought I would share with you another assignment that I completed in my Photoshop class. Most of the assignments are not really exciting to look at, they are meant to teach you about a tool or technique so we can complete our final project. This lesson was to get us comfortable with tinting a photo. The trick was to zoom in really close and adjust the paint brush. It was time consuming but not very difficult.
The final photo is split in half. One side was the original color, the other is what I colored.
Here's how this was done.
Open the photo and make a new adjustment layer. Choose Hue/Saturation and slide the saturation slider all the way to the left. This will make the image appear gray.
Next, add a new layer and change the blend mode to color for that layer. Now, grab your brush tool, select a color, and start to paint.
This is a great technique if you want to add a "pop" of color to a photo.
