With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Author Rich Harrington guides you through this brand-new workflow, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats. The course also covers how Photoshop's strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates to video, from fixing under- or overexposed footage, performing color balancing, and adding vibrance and contrast to special effects, such as converting to black and white and using Smart Filters to soften skin.
If you find that the white balance is off for a shot, an easy way to adjust it is with a levels adjustment. You'll find both black and white eyedropper's in there that you can use to manually re-white balance or black balance. This particular shot is a little bit off, it's not bad, but I want to select it and then choose the Levels Adjustment. Inside, I can now take the black and white eyedropper. I'm going to start with the black eyedropper and click on something that should be black. In this case, we have a highly reflective screen that's starting to pick up some of the colors.
I click and the black balance has been fixed. Let's go ahead with the white eyedropper and find something that should be white. Now if it goes too strong, you can always back that off. I'll just choose to undo, Ctrl+Z, and instead, look for something else that should be bright white. This can be difficult if you don't have a pure white on the page and that's looking pretty good, I'm just going to fade that off a bit, so it's not quite as intense.
If we look at the before and after, you see we definitely have fixed the color balance as well as the contrast issues with just a couple of clicks.
