Learn about using adjustments and filters to enhance the look of a layer.
- [Instructor] We've got the new background…in place, but it's too intrusive,…so let's knock it back a bit.…We'll start by selecting it in the layer studio,…and now let's add an adjustment…to make it a bit blue,…and I'm going to go all the way down…to the bottom and choose…the white balance adjustment.…By dragging the balance slider to the left,…I can give it the coolness that I'm after,…and let's add a little tint to it as well.…
Dragging right on the tint gives you some green,…and dragging it left gives you a magenta look,…and that's the appearance that I'm after.…It is still too dominant in this image,…so let's now add a filter to it.…We'll go back into the layer studio…and make sure we're selecting the band…and not that adjustment,…and now we can go to the filter studio.…There's a lot of filters to choose from.…
To find the depth of field blur we want,…let's tap process all filters,…and change this to blurs, and now…we can easily find that depth of field blur.…I'll drag it so that's centered…over this musician in the middle,…
