From This To That Photo Editing Tutorial
In this first photo editing tutorial Phil Sheil demonstrates basic editing techniques in Photoshop to help transform “this” pretty good image to “that” much more interesting one. Using levels, saturation and colour balance Phil demonstrates how to adjust a colour palette to create greater impact. He demonstrates the use of layers for separating the subject from the background and various painting techniques.
Phil is an instructor for Creative Endeavors and also a full time university professor of art and design. He has extensive experience with Photoshop having used it for years in his own artistic practice and also having taught it year after year at university.
