So today shows a bit of progress, but I wouldn’t say I’ve reached a milestone yet.
So I’ve learned a couple of things again. They are mostly about touching up the image though.
If you look closely, you can see a lot of detail has been improved, expecially in terms of the green background. I was able to use some different features.
- Hue and Saturation –
so this is another feature in Photoshop.You can find it by going into: the Images tool bar—>adjustments—>Hue/Saturation. It isn’t exactly a new concept/feature in technology, but it’s my first time actually using it. As it says, I can use it to adjust the hue and saturation of the picture, so all I had to do was select a part and change the color to make it look more like it’s original color and to get rid of the green reflection. It’s very useful for adjusting colors. I used it quite a lot to get rid of the green reflections and things like that. It’s also helpful because I can cover large areas at once, just by using the selector tool. Although, sometimes the adjustments may stick out from the background, so it requires quite a lot of adjustments.
- Clone Stamp Tool –
This is quite a useful tool for editing the color. This can be found in the middle of the long list of features at the left hand toolbar. What it basically does is: it takes a sample of an area (depending on how large you make the cursor out to be), and stamps it onto another area of your choice. It’s great for editing areas that have inconsistencies, although, you have to choose the right place to sample. Otherwise, it will stand out when you add it onto another place.
- Spot Healing Brush Tool –
This is a neat tool becuse I’m pretty sure a lot of photography editors use this. It can be used to remove all sorts of ugly things (most often, things on the face, e.g. pimples). I’m not sure how it works, but I think it works similar to the Clone Stamp Tool. It’ll automatically remove the inconsistency from the picture just by clicking on it. Although, just like the Clone Stamp Tool, it may result in weird effects, like gray smudges appearing. It only works on obvious inconsistencies.
