Welcome

Hi, I'm Taz Tally and welcome to Photoshop Color Correction: Advanced. In this course we'll look at setting up Photoshop color correction tools, and establish a workflow for evaluating, measuring, and correcting, or creatively adjusting color in images using visual, graphical, and numeric techniques. I'll start by explaining how to visually evaluate an image, by identifying key elements of an image such as new tools and skin tones, by using your eyes.

Then we will see how to use the histogram and info tools to evaluate the color balance and creatively adjust an image. We will see how to create color balanced images that are ready for output, using curved adjustment layers, gray-scale target, layer mass and smart filter layers. Now let's get started with Advanced Color Correction in Photoshop.
