Cinematic Color Grading – Make Your Photos Look Like The Ones in the Film In Photoshop

August 21, 2019

Hey guys welcome to my next Photoshop tutorial. Today i’m gonna teach You how to get a Film Look First, i’m gonna bring up contrast and lower the brightness To do that create a new curves layer Now it’s brightness and contrast are getting more realistic Just play around a little bit to get the look you want And then create a new selective color adjustment layer Select the ‘Blacks’ to create some teal look to your image Again play around it with a little bit (Not too much!) And now we’re gonna change the color skin to teal Create a new curves adjustment layer again Because we only want to change the skin color, we have to mask out all the other areas To do that fill the layer mask with black Now pick the brush tool and set the flow to a low number (mine is 43%) And paint the face with a white color to reveal the skin area and some part of the hair too Press Alt+Click to see the layer mask alone Brush it to fill the face Now whatever change you make to the curves layer it will only affect the face How to change the skin color is really up to you. At last we’re gonna sharpen the image just a little bit (again not too much!) Duplicate the original image layer Go to Filters-Others-High Pass Set the amount to a very low number like 1-3 (depending on your image) Set the layer blending mode to ‘Overlay” Still it’s too much for me so I bring down the opacity Name all the layers and group them to keep your workflow organized And here we are. The final result. If you like my video please like & subscribe to my channel. Thank you 😀

    Yet, another poster whom, seemingly is mute. What's up, you cannot engage your brain to multitask and talk and explain what it is you are doing…thought not.
