In the previous movie, we talked about how we could create a dynamic black and white photograph. Well here I want to talk about how we can more effectively add a Split Toning effect to our images. So let's go and navigate to the Split Toning panel, and let's do that by way of our handy shortcut. Press Command+4 on a Mac, or Control+4 on Windows to open up the Split Toning panel. Next, here we can modify the tone by adding a color to the Highlights or Shadows. If we click and drag the Hue, we can select a Hue, we can increase our color Saturation, and then we can try to find just the right hue for our photograph.
Yet, it's really tricky to find the right color when we have a low Saturation value. Yet, you can use a really helpful and handy shortcut key modifier, which will change the way that you work with the Hue slider. Press Option on a Mac, Alt on Windows, then click on the Hue slider. Here, we can now see the Hue at 100% Saturation. This will help us find just the right color that we want to work with. Then let go of Option or Alt, and you can see it now at the Saturation level which you have defined with this slider.
The same thing can be said for our Shadows. Hold down Option on a Mac, Alt on Windows, find just the right blue that you want to bring into the shadows, and then go ahead and increase your Saturation, so that you can bring that color up, so that you can create an interesting split toned photograph.
