- Because the GoPro images are heavily compressed…they often lose critical image detail.…I find that sometimes jumping into Photostop…and stacking multiple images together,…or copies of the same image,…go a long way in restoring proper contrast and even color.…Let's start with that last example we were…looking at with the mountain range.…By duplicating that layer, I'll just call this Overlay,…I could change its blend mode.…Something like Multiply goes a long way…to put the color back in.…
Note by putting the copy on top in Multiply mode…it was really easy to bring details out.…Additionally, particularly with stills,…it's easy for you to create a mask.…Using a tool like the Quick Selection tool…you can quickly grab key details inside the image itself.…Choose Refine Edge and Smart Radius.…That makes it easy then…to apply that as a layer mask,…if you'd like to separately control that area.…
Notice in this case, I like that.…I'm just gonna lower the opacity slightly.…Then duplicate that layer, select the layer mask,…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
