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.
While much of what we do inside of product retouching requires a personal touch, some aspects can be automated. Together we're going to look at options using the automation features inside of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, but what makes for a good file for automation? The first thing you want to look at is consistent shots. Here we have a series of bottles that were shot on a similar background, have similar sizing, they're all vertical and I know that they're going to end up in the same destination, they're going to be used for a web catalog. If I have different sizes as far as image size, resolution or even orientation, they may or may not be the best candidate for automation.
We're going to take a look at what we can do as far as automation goes inside of Bridge and Photoshop.
