Photoshop CS4: Color Correction Techniques
How do you improve the color balance of your images? This workshop will show you the basic principals of color correction — with real-world application of those principals. All updated for Photoshop CS4.
With an intimate look at one of the biggest changes in Photoshop CS4: The new Adjustments Panel interface.
In this information-packed session, you'll learn a variety of color correction techniques using Levels, Curves, and Hue and Saturation adjustment layers. You'll also dig into techniques for matching color between images, and balancing color to achieve “pleasing color” results.
This 90-minute workshop covers the real-world use of Photoshop's color correction tools. Including:
- Adjusting images in RGB vs. CMYK.
- Using Levels and the Histogram.
- Correcting color with Curves.
- Correcting color with Hue and Saturation.
- Matching color between two images.
- Plus many tips and tricks from real-world retouching.
These workshops are demonstrated using Photoshop CS4 on Mac OS X, however the learning applies to PC users as well as previous versions of Photoshop.
