Adobe Photoshop: The Heart of Color Correction

Characteristics Of This Class:

If you're tired of trial-and-error color correction, come unlock the secrets of Adobe Photoshop's amazing color correction tools! On this interactive journey, learn how to use Photoshop to make a great image extraordinary.

This course works extensively with Adobe Camera Raw and the five most essential adjustment layers, including Levels, Curves, Selective Color, and Hue/Saturation. You'll walk away with proven color correction techniques and a greater understanding of digital color spaces.

This class will cover:

  • How to use the Camera Raw color correction features
  • Recording those 5 adjustment layers into an action
  • A one-click solution for correcting color casts
  • Turning a subject from blue to red
  • The easiest and most powerful way to convert color to black and white
  • The secret to achieving gorgeous black-and-white infrared pictures
  • Combining black and white with color or sepia-tone
  • Reducing extreme contrasts with a Shadow/Highlight Smart Filter

Presented in Adobe CS6, but most of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.

Who Should Take This:

Photographers and graphic designers with basic Photoshop skills who need to refine their color correction techniques. If you need Photoshop basics, take Getting Started with Photoshop first.
