Join Julieanne Kost to discover how take multiple images from Lightroom into Photoshop to create an imaginary, surreal world, unifying the individual components through color and tone. This video is part of Lightroom & Photoshop Workflows: Start-to-Finish Studies.
- [Instructor] One of the images that I really hoped…to create while I was in Antarctica…was a split image, or an under/over image,…where half of the image is under the water,…and half of the image is on top of the water.…But unfortunately, there was a big algae bloom…and so the water wasn't clear enough…to make that kind of image.…So when I got home, I decided I would just…make one using my imagination.…So I'm going to start here with this iceberg,…and just make one quick tonal adjustment.…I'm going to hold down the Shift key and double-click…on the Whites to set my white point…and increase the dynamic range.…
Then, I'm going to open this image…into Photoshop, and I'm going to open it…as a Smart Object, because a lot of times…when I'm compositing multiple images together…and I add different elements and I blend them…together with different blend modes,…sometimes the image gets too dark or too light,…and it's always nice to be able to go back…to the original image if I have to make changes.…So when I make composites, typically I'll open…
