So for the next few weeks I will be using my blog as a presentational sketchbook for my Digital Media class.
For this post i shall display a few examples of photoshop tutorials:
this is the image i begin with to help along with the tutorials.
for the image above i used the cutout filter to achieve the effect. You can do this by choosing Filter>Artistic>Cutout of which will then open a gallery pannel as well as change the image.
There are plenty of filters to play about with and here are a few examples:
taken from the above cutout image i used i have now adjusted the amount of colour there is in the image. To do this select Chose image>Adjustments>Colour balance. within the tiny box displayed you have the option to change your tone balance; for this image i used midtone whilst changing the colour levels to +100, 0, -100.
HUE AND SATURATION
you can also change the colour of the image by choosing to make the hue and saturation higher or lower. In order to successfully do this just go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/saturation. for this car image i changed the settings to -45 (hue), +55 (saturation) and +17 (lightness).
LAYERS AND ADDING TEXT
this image here was created by using two layers and the difference style. You can create an image layer by going to File>Place of which will then add the new image to layer ontop of the background image; of which i used clouds for this method. i managed to achieve my final design by using the layer styles and decided to chose the ‘difference’ effect as it gives the image a posterized look.
Text was later added. to do this just click on the add text tool and click anywhere on the photo where a text layer will appear. Once the successful image is finished i flattened my image of which merges the layers together and makes the file size smaller.
