PHOTOSHOP HOW TO REMOVE ANYTHING YOU WANT??? From Photo, Keep Background -Content-Aware, Clone StampFebruary 9, 2020
hi guys in this video we’ll be learning
how to remove anything from an image in Photoshop this can be a very valuable
tool if used correctly so let’s get to it here we have a picture of a beach and
this woman is photobombing our beautiful scenery what we can do is we can go to
the left side and select lasso tool drag around the part of the image that you
want to be removed remember to get the reflection under here once you have that
selected we’ll go to edit and click on fill or you can use hotkeys shift+f5
will leave colour (not color cause I’m canadian) adaptation on and contents aware selected click OK what
this will do is it will remove her from the image and leave a very clean
background now this doesn’t always happen for every image it depends on how
complex the background is in this case we got very clean image but let’s show
you a different one now here we have a Ferrari and a BMW so we’ll remove BMW here
because Ferrari doesn’t want to lose to a BMW now let’s change this to a polygonal
tool because the shape of the car is easier to work with this kind of tool
it doesn’t have to be very accurate but try to get as much of the car as you
can now once you have that selected we’ll go to edit again fill remember to
leave colour adaptation on contents aware selected okay now let’s
right-click on the image and deselect as we can see it got a little messy here
and messy here the part of the road is gone however we can fix this now let’s go to
the left side and this is the clone stamp tool what this does is it will copy part of the image elsewhere and replace wherever you want to fix
now let’s choose over here you want to hold alt and click here and now we can
paint over this with a different part of the image as you can see the result is very
nice now we can zoom in a bit to fix this up
better you wanna just work your way in there and voila the BMW is gone we can also
fix up the road here a little make it look a little nicer and we can select to
copy this part and remove the car over here blend it in that’s grass we can also remove this logo here out of
this and there you go as you can see we can
get very creative on how and what we want to remove from the image so if you
like what you see please SUBSCRIBE and I’ll see you next time
You’ve created your brilliant advert. How do you export it so you can use it in social media? Firstly, you go to the File Menu and choose ‘Export’ Then you select ‘Save for Web’ Now, you have some options to choose from. We want this to be a ‘JPEG’. For ‘Image Quality’ always use 100% for social media. Nowadays, ‘Optimized Encoding’ is standard because most everyone is on broadband. Convert to ‘sRGB’ – these are “Web Safe Colours”. Because, online is always RGB. The image size is 1080 pixels, because that’s the size we made our canvas. 1080 is the perfect size for social media! And ‘Save’. That’s it, you’re done. The world of social media advertising is now your plaything. So, go play. Leave a comment, like and subscribe. Then you too can join our tribe.
You start by placing your chosen image on the canvas you’ve already prepared. Resize the image by dragging the Transform Controls – these are the little handles at the corners. If you click on ‘Show Transform Controls’ at the top – you’ll be able to see these controls throughout. Not essential – but useful! Select ‘Layer’ – so you know you’re working on the right layer. Then, go to the Quick Selection Tool Make sure you choose the ‘Add To Selection’ – that’s the plus at the top. Then hit ‘Select Subject’ which automatically selects the most prominent object in the image in this case, the woman. Then go to Add Layer Mask – and the background disappears. Now, the edge of the mask needs refining! So, double-click the thumbnail – and you can now edit the ‘Layer Mask’! Select the Refine Edge brush tool. Then zoom in to clearly see what you’re doing – using ‘⌘ +’. ‘⌘ -’ will zoom out again! So, using the Refine Edge Tool, you click and hold while you move it over the area you want to change. A lot of the hard work is done for you. Now you select ‘OK’ which takes you out of the ‘Layer Mask’. And you’re done. Happy? Good. You’ve cut out your person and refined her edges! No photo is safe from you, now! Plus – you’re ready to create your social media advert which we’ll talk you through – in our next video! Leave a comment, like and subscribe. Then you too can join our tribe.
-Stir this. You want to learn this recipe or not? -Okay. -Give me. -No, I’ll make you do it when it’s hot enough to burn. Not now. No matter where you travel across the world, which fancy hotel you eat in, in the end, nothing compares to food your mom cooks! We have always been into clicking pictures and storing them, so… This is my mom’s picture. And you’d actually see a lot of good pictures of my mom. Because mom used to be an actor. She acted in children’s plays. -Mom!! -Yeah? -This is my father. -Come. Come here. -Coming. -So, mom, I was just telling them you used to act in plays. -Yeah! -Children’s plays, right? -Yes. And then grown-up plays as well. -So when I planned to become an actor, mom gave her full support. -I had no objection. -Full support! We used to live in a Wada before. And we’d always have people coming over for meals and stuff. Mainly, our family was like… Mom’s parents both used to cook. -Order.s -They’d take orders. Then my uncle… This is his photo. He had a stall. -He’d sell Pav Bhaji, Bhel, Dosa… -Special Bun Vada. -He had his famous Bun Vada. Hosting people was very common in our home. Like, cook a huge pots of food and host everyone for a meal on the terrace. And mom was known for all of this. My favourite dish by mom… Like, mom-made… -It was bitter gourd. -Which nobody ever eats. Yeah. So, I’d refuse to eat other veggies but strangely, I’d like bitter gourd. The reason is that mom and I both like crispy, roasted things. -Yes, burnt crispy! A lot. -Isn’t it? -So we’re making that today, right? Bitter gourd sabzi? -Okay. Yes. Some more pictures from my childhood. -While you prep for bitter gourd, I’ll make tea. -Okay. Mom and I used to chat a lot earlier, actually. On the phone… -Come here. -Now we don’t get time. When I began living by myself, I’d call her and ask for recipes. Because I really like cooking. -Wow! -So… cumin seeds and mustard seeds… -In equal amounts almost or…? -No, cumin seeds in a lesser amount. -Or… -And do we roast it or something? -No, we don’t. If this tastes bitter because of the cumin, add a bit of mustard later. Okay. The spice coating is ready. If you think this is too much, you can use it later, just add some salt. -Nothing is too much. The more, the better. -Yes, the spice… the taste… -Make tea, but pay attention, or you’ll go wrong again. -No. -No matter what, grind the garlic separately. -That’s exactly where I went wrong! -I put everything together and it made a thick paste. -Correct. Then we mix all of it together. I’ll show you how to mix properly. -Mom really likes the tea I make. -Yes. -Like I really like her bitter gourd dish. -But now… -It’s rare that I get to have tea made by you. -Yes. Only when you’re in Mumbai. -Yes, only then. -All of this… -Yeah. -Mix it well. -Sorry, I’m just checking the consistency with my hands. -Yes, do it. This type of a mustard coating is also used in pickles. Without the cumin. -But when we make pickles at home, we… -I can eat this as is. Of course, eat it. Touch it; see how it feels. -Amazing! -Great. -How much garlic did we take? -Lots and lots. No measurement for garlic. -Generous! -How-much-ever you wish… Now, you fill it in chillies and bitter gourd. Give it a cut like you cut eggplants when you cook spicy eggplants. Give a cut to the chillies too. Do not remove the seeds from the bitter gourd! -That is important! -It has to taste a little bitter. -Yeah! Take four gourds. -Mom, it says ‘Happy Hour’. Mom! -Yeah? -Do we get free beer here in the afternoon? See, this one is nice and big. -One, two, three… So I’ve made five pieces of this. Because it’s pretty long. -Five. -So each piece is approximately 1-1.5 inches. -Yes. Correct. Make a cut into this. And I haven’t removed any seeds! -See how it opened. -We’ll fill it into this. -Yes. Fill it inside. Similarly, for the chilli… -Can I try this with a knife? The cutting? -Sure! -Right? -No issues, do it. -I’ll do it. Insert the point in first, so you can pull it down. Make a vertical cut first like this, right? Right, that’s it. Then drag it ahead the way you like. -Okay. Then open it a little. -Open this. -To put in the filling. -You can open it while filling. -Don’t touch your eyes with these hands. -Not eyes, not anything else. No body part! -No other part. See? This is where our stand-up comes from. We’re done with the cutting board. -Okay. -No, I still have to cut the lemon. It’s an important thing. The lemon… Cut it into four… eight slices. -Eight slices of a lemon. -Eight slices. Leave them there. Sarang, now we have to fill these. -The more filling you can stuff it with, the better it tastes. -The more spice, the better. -This is what I like the most! -Of course! I really like this. In the first episode too, Geeta Aunty said the same thing. Same thing here. When you ask mom how much of an ingredient to use… ‘No measurements. As you want.’ When the colour and smell is good, remember that the it is ready. Now, the chillies are remaining- important. -We have to fill them. -Teach me how. -Look at this. Open it like this and press it with your hands. -So the filling… The chilli is very thin, right? -Yeah. You can’t stuff much inside like a gourd, so… -I recently ate crocodile meat in Australia. It looked the same. -Ugh! What weird connections are you making! Playing with food is one of his favourite things! Stay away! I used to play with papad dough a lot and eat it too… -And laddoos, until they’d bind in the syrup… -Pickles! -Yes, pickles! I liked pickles better before they were pickled! And we eat more raw mangoes than ripe ones! Yes. In short, we are eager to eat! In a hurry! -Correct, exactly. -Eating mangoes before they ripen… -Before the vadi becomes vadi… -Some things you aren’t in a hurry for… -Let it be. Please remove this reference from the edit, okay? -No, no. Don’t remove it. -Things your mom wants you to hurry, you don’t… -Okay! Let’s move on. -Okay! -Yeah, let’s change the subject! Is that why you use the pressure cooker? -So the thick bottom. -Yeah, it is thick… The extra pan you get with the cooker- food doesn’t get burnt when you use it. So, I use it to make things like laddoos etc. Look at this. How much turmeric? No measuring? -You can only learn that through experience. -Since when have you been cooking? My mom would go out for cooking jobs since I was 2.5 months old. So, elder sister, then the middle sister used to cook. And then me. I’ve been cooking full meals since 5th-6th std. And with a stove! Not a gas stove. It had a low flame and it would make bop-bop sounds. You’d have to use a pin for it. With this stove… I could make rice, dal, and even chapatis if the dough was ready, since I was in 6th or 7th std. Remember if the flame is low or high, for this pan. Or else, it’ll get burnt quickly. -I’ve lowered the flame a bit for some time. -And the lemons? -Here. Put the lemon slices in. -They’ll go in with this? -Yes. The entire spice coating is in as well! What was your favourite dish that your mother would cook? -Dish my mom made? Difficult to answer! -Why? -She’d be out all the time. And we’d never be with our mom on festivals! -That’s why I used to cook festival specialities for you even when I was working in a school. -Yes. So you’d not miss it. But my mom cooked everything well! After this, because this is a bitter dish made by mom… We’re also going to make something sweet. What are we making? My famous Rava Vadi. It doesn’t need ghee- that’s the special thing about it. -Okay. -All our dishes usually need a lot of pure ghee. This dish doesn’t need ghee. A special memory about this is… When I was working in school, one of my student’s grandmother had made vadis for 500 kids and sent! Amazing vadi! Nicely cut into… That lady taught us how to make it. -Okay. -And I could do it. So… We’ve turned the flame off. It smells incredible! Let’s see what’s happening. Look at this. So, the sabzi is ready. I’m serving you this with a bhakri. So, I’m going to taste a bit of all three- bitter gourd, chilli and lemon. And I’m sure it’s great. If you aren’t, you can try this at home. So crispy! Mm! Keep everything aside and taste the spice mix first. It is amazing! Okay! I’ll make your favourite vadis. We can make it now. -Mmm. -Let’s go! -You want a taste? -Shot! -Look at our James Bond here! Shut up! -James Bond… -James Bond! -A cup of grated coconut. -A cup of coconut. -A cup of fine Rava- zero size. -Cup of fine Rava. -And a cup of milk. -A cup of milk. -Milk. That’s the three things. -Put it all in as soon as you turn the flame on? -Or even before that. -This is coconut stuff, so not that. -Right. Not that. -Two and a half cups of sugar. -So plenty of sugar! -No! Not a lot. If you want a lot, it’s twice the amount. -Okay. -It’s not a lot. -And keep stirring now? -Keep a high flame for 10 minutes. -And keep doing this? -Yes. -Keep at it. -This dish is simple and sweet, just like me. The one before this was a little complex and bitter. Like other people. -This is like the simplest person in this home. -The nicest person. -Nice, friendly… -Would never hurt anyone. Would never interfere with anyone. -Mom, the vanilla essence… -We don’t put it in now! -I’ll just take it out. I know. We don’t put it in now because… -Vanilla essence makes it bitter. So you add like a… -Drop. -Yes, a tiny drop. I’ll keep it ready. Doesn’t take more than a few seconds! -Stir this. You want to learn this recipe or not? -Okay. -Give me. -No, I’ll make you do it when it’s hot enough to burn. Not now. -It’s easier now! I can do it. -Okay. Fine. Here. -If I knew this was so easy, I’d make it all the time. -No. It doesn’t happen. We think we will, but we don’t end up doing it because it’s easy. I’ll cook this for the office… I promise I’ll make it at home and eat. Nice! See. A tiny amount of ghee. If you use too much, it’ll feel oily. -So just enough to avoid it sticking at the bottom. -Yes, correct! -I don’t think there’s a simpler dessert than this, right? -No, there isn’t. Come on now. -How do you know where to stop? -See this. It becomes completely dry at the edges. Hmm. So, it is beginning to spray up. Use this trick. Take a nice towel. Like this. Hold it and keep stirring like this. So your hands don’t get sprayed. Got it? -Don’t try this at home. -You thought it’s easy, no? -You can only do it under a stuntman’s supervision. -Nothing like that. -It’s like playing with fire! No, not that bad. -It can get bad! -No, it’s not so bad. -But… -See, it’s spraying up. -Yes. Keep a distance and stir slowly. Otherwise it sprays up. This makes them realize that this woman is doing something difficult. -Right. Or… -You’ve been repeating the same thing so many times! -‘So easy, mom. It’s so easy!’ -No. -It’s easy up to this stage, not after that. Now I know. -No, it’s not easy. -How much? -A spoonful. -When you use soy sauce… -It’ll harden! -No. No, it won’t, dear. Can you see? It has to really become dry at the edges. Me and my mom… When I was a child, I was very attached to mom. And now he’s almost forgotten me! -Mom who? -No, I’m not like ‘mom who?’ -No. He is still attached! -Yeah. Another thing that the viewers don’t know… The ‘ancient wisdom’ phrase is something I’ve borrowed from mom. When we were shooting the first episode… Varun had written it. I wanted another scene. And mom used to say this in my childhood. ‘It’s ancient wisdom’. That’s how he’d wait till the sweets were offered to God. Or like, don’t serve salt first in the plate. Don’t serve salt first when it’s an offering to God. -Things his grandmother had taught me. -Ancient wisdom it is! -Mom, say the ancient wisdom line once. -Like this? -Yes. -It’s ancient wisdom. -It’s ancient wisdom. -She’s blushing right now, but she used to say it to me. -I had a different voice then! Shall I put in a little now? -What a smell! -Yeah. Vanilla makes it better! -No… -See, Sarang. Can you see this? -Yeah. That’s how it should look actually. -Okay. -Sarang, vadis are ready. It is outstanding! Have a look! Sarang, get a bowl from inside quickly. It’s very crispy! -Mom, it’ll burn. -Eh! Not when it looks like this. (Singing Marathi song) This is the fast version. If you want to try the slower version, take it off the flame early. -And… -It takes more time to make it then. -More time. -If you want to make instant vadis… -Half an hour. This take half an hour at least. -That’s it! Sarang asked me to cook bitter gourd. It turned out really well! -It’s also called the bitter gourd pickle. -Yes. But you need something sweet after that… So, for Sarang, I made our favourite- and my specialty- coconut barfi. -I think he really liked it! -I loved it! Try the recipe and see how you like it. I don’t know if it’ll taste like my mom’s, but it’ll taste like your mom’s made it. If you like this show, please share this ‘Aaichya Haatcha’ video. Also subscribe to Bha2Pa- Bharatiya Touring Party. -Because…? -It’s ancient wisdom! -Yes. Everyone learnt it from us. Okay, that’s enough!
Hi guys! welcome to the episode number four of my Lightroom tutorials Today I show you how to make a natural exposure blending with Lightroom and also some advanced HSL retouching tips Here are two examples of what I will explain in this video… This is a before and an after then another before, and again the after So let’s begin! as you can see I have six images for two examples that means that I have three RAW files per single image the pictures are take with auto exposure bracketing and on the tripod the first one is a normal esposure then I have two stops under exposed one and the last is over exposed by two stops so with this method I can create a “super RAW” image with much more editing capabilities than the single one and the editing will be much more effective so, now I can select my three RAW files and create the exposure blending by left-clicking the images and selecting “Photo Merge” and then “HDR” you can also merge the images by pressing CTRL+H Now the system will show a preview screen dialog That loading phase can be slow, depending on the power of your system and the number of the images Once the loading process is complete you can specify some options Always leave the “auto-align” option checked because either you are shooting with a tripod there can be some movements between the three shots If your picture does not contain any moving objects like threes or people you can select “none” for the deghosting amount Always check with the preview screen if the ghosting is present, for example in this case I am checking the water The “auto-tone” option is not important I don’t like how it works so I don’t use it, but you can give it a try if you like it So click on “Merge” and wait for the system to create the super RAW file that we are going to edit for this first example The file is ready and i “flag” it by pressing the “P” key so you can also recognize the HDR by looking at its name As you can see, I left the auto-tone option checked,and this is the editing the system has done for me. Thank you, but I will do it myself so let’s click “reset” Now I go fast with that part: I apply the basic retouch Then I create a graduated filter and a radial filter also as shown in my previous episodes Ok the retouch is complete, but the image is still a little bit flat in the colors So I can figure out something by doing an advanced color retouch with the HSL options HSL stands for Hue, Saturation and Luminance and I’m going to show you how it can affect the colors on the picture So let’s start with the luminance, and… I try to make it as simple as it can be With that function you can control the light on a single color, for example If you see that the blue is not as dark as you want you can make it darker Or, as in this case, I can make the pink colors on the clouds even more pronounced you have to be very careful doing that because it can create some bad effects and non-natural gradients on the sky for example, like in this case I always check at 100% what I am doing The luminance retouch can affect all the other retouch made before So, it can be necessary to adjust some of the previous change you made I repeat that aspect because it’s very important: Always check at 100% what you are doing because you can completely f** up an image with this setting As you can see, now I let you see what can happen if you abuse that sliders here on the clouds can be very bad ok, not let’s move on the saturation tab that is very easy to use with that function you can saturate or desaturate every single color channel on your image Let’s see what I can do in this case you can always check how the editing is working by turning off and on the options Now I go on fast because the HUE retouching is not particularly effective on that example so let’s take a look at the final image at 100% here it is if you use that HSL retouching properly I think you can have very natural and beautiful results, with natural colors Now, let’s move on to the next example I will repeat all the workflow I made in the first image, until it’s time to do the HSL retouching process So I select all the three images and I blend in HDR mode this time there is a person in the frame, so I select a “medium” deghosting method then once the image is complete I remove a little dust that was on the sky I make sure that there is no ghosting in the person and I move on with the basic retouch then I create a graduated filter on the sky and a radial filter on the sun light ok the retouch is complete now I can start to retouch the HSL parameter working at 100%, to better see what will happen in the sun light first of all I lower the luminance of the red, orange, and yellows I set -10 for both the colors ok but… this line at the top of the light is a little bit too strong for me checking the result I notice that the color is not natural and I think that is better to set a -4 and see what can I do lowering the vibrance giving back some highlights not too much because I’m loosing the colors… I think something like -90 instead of -100… will be fine… and take out some whites so I can… go back and lower the luminance as before… now it looks better! the line above the clouds does not look as strong as before then I can add some saturation to the colors I retouched and move on to the HUE option than option is also easy to use, but it can be very dangerous because it affects all the image now I can balance the same colors I retouched before to the left, so the main color will be more visible then I decide to edit the radial filter I applied before, to better manage that last retouch I adjust the feather and I give back some light increasing the exposure now I check how the HSL retouch affects the image by turning OFF the effect and see what can change now I make some final adjustments to the image for example I add some saturation modifying the radial filter on the sun light and also I go a little bit warmer with the light balance I also notice that the snow is very blue so I can lower the saturation of the blue tones in the HSL options Ithen I can add some luminance to this tones, trying to catch some white from the snow the last thing is adding some contrast I usually don’t add contrast with lightroom but I use external tools… In this case it does not matter, and I will talk about the contrast in another video… The retouch is complete! let’s give a fast look at this image at 100% then I show you the before and after of both the examples I covered in this tutorial So, as always, I hope you enjoyed this video… please let me know what do you think in the comments and if you have any questions, please ask! In the next episode I will talk about cropping the pictures composition, and perpective correction for architectural photography So, if you are interested Subscribe! and… see you the next time bye bye!
