Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing video with adjustment layers in Photoshop, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- While we've explored Adjustment layers to a certain depth,…I'd like to show you some of my favorites.…There's some cool things in there…for Lookup Tables,…as well as working with Black & White Adjustment layers…to really bring out the contrast.…I wanna show you a couple of recipes…that will take your footage from looking good…to hopefully great.…You'll recall that most video…can be opened from Bridge…into Photoshop.…If needed, just select the clips that you want to target,…and them drag them…on the Photoshop icon.…This'll open the clips up.…
Now, any of the adjustments…from the Adjustments panel…can be chosen.…Let's just drag to a good frame here.…And we see "flying through the forest."…What I'd like to do…is add a Curves adjustment.…And by option-clicking on the word "Auto,"…I could choose to fix things like…the Light and Dark Colors,…or Brightness and Contrast,…and you see how it attempts to adjust.…In this case, the Dark and Light Colors…with Snapping the midtones…works pretty well.…
Additionally, I could use tools…
