Processing product shots requires a slightly different set of skills than retouching portraits. But with Photoshop and the techniques shown in this course, you can take raw photos of any product—jewelry or electronics—and turn them into ad-ready images. Follow along with Kevin Stohlmeyer, as he color corrects and retouches photos and then makes them pop off the screen with silhouettes, realistic highlights and shadows, and vibrant color. He also shares a series of Photoshop actions and other automation techniques he uses to speed up his workflow.
Another way that I can automate features inside of PhotoShop is to do multiple actions at the same time recorded in one action. In this case I want to save a version out for print and another version for web. So, what I'm going to do is start by setting up my recording and I'm call this save for print and web and hit record. Now I'm going to go to image, image size, and double check my size for print. In this case I'm going to go and change my height from 17 inches to a maximum of 10 inches high.
I'm going to leave my resolution at high res for print, 300 pixels per inch and hit okay. Then I'm going to do a File> Save as and go to a new destination. So in this case, I'm going to create a new folder that I call Print, and save my file inside of the print folder. If I need to change my image color size I can do so as well before I save. After I've completed that part, I can now also save this out as a web image, by simply going to File> Save For Web, and going through the process of saving for web.
Choosing the appropriate web format, the quality, and the resolution and size down below. So down below I'm going to make this 600 pixels wide, I'm reducing so I'm using bicubic sharper, and I'm going to hit save. Now, in here, I'm also going to save this to a new destination. And I'm going to call this folder, web. And save this in my web folder. When I'm done, simply hit stop. When I batch automate now, all I have to do, is make sure that I do not override the Save As action commands and that will save it in the two individual folders at the same time.
