Seán Duggan explains how to add image adjusments in Adobe Photoshop CC to a cinemagraph.
- [Voiceover] So now that I have the basic…cinemagraph effect in place, and I also have…the looping transition applied,…I wanna add a couple of adjustment layers,…just to make this image look a little bit better.…So I'm gonna make sure that my still image,…the top layer on the layers panel, is active,…because I want all of my adjustment layers…to be added on top of that.…The first thing that I want to do is darken the image…overall just a little bit.…So I'll come down and click on the…add adjustment layer button to add a curves…adjustment layer, and I'm just going to pull down…a little bit here, more up on the top part of the curve,…just to kind of darken that down just a little bit.…
Mainly I wanted to darken down that top part of the image.…I don't want the hills getting quite as dark…as they have gotten, so with that layer mask active,…I'll get my brush tool, and I will tap on…the right bracket key to make my brush bigger,…and I'm going to paint with black, so right now,…black is my background color, I'll tap X…
