Selective color adjustment is almost as old as photography. It was just 20 years after photography was officially “born” in 1839, that photographers started hand-painting images. Today selective colorization is easy for anyone to achieve with digital tools like Photoshop. Instead of recoloring areas of a monochrome image, you desaturate a color image, masking the portions you wish to remain in color. Deke shows you how in this week’s free episode of Deke’s Techniques.

This week, Bert walks us through turning a photo of a sugar donut into a jelly donut with a bite taken out of it.
His first step is removing the donut’s hole, so he selects the clone tool and clones from different areas of the donut to get a random effect with no duplication. Next, to create the bite effect, he clones from the background to remove that section of the donut and roughs out the edges.

This week, Bert walks us through how to create a top secret manila envelope in Photoshop. He begins by creating a new layer called envelope, draws a rectangle, and fills it with a beige color. He then converts this box to black and white, and applies both a cloud and an emboss filter, which creates the paper texture. Lastly, he goes into hue/saturation and colorizes it to achieve a nice beige color.

Put your photos through a digital funhouse with Photoshop. Today’s free episode of Deke’s Techniques shows you how to take any portrait and warp it into a photo caricature with the Liquify filter and Free Transform tool. The gist of the technique is emphasizing your subject’s most noticeable features. Large eyes? Make them round as saucers. Strong chin? Give it the Leno treatment. And if you warp and scale the portrait with Free Transform before you apply the Liquify tool, you’ll get even more dramatic results.
