Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting overexposure with Color Range, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Here we are going to travel to another resort. …We will be working with this beautiful photograph here, and we'll take a look at how we can combine …multiple exposures together, and also how we can select one area of our photograph in order …to use it in a different area to make a correction or enhancement. …Then finally, we will work on the overall color and tone. …Well, in the Layers panel, you will notice we have this Background layer with this beautiful warm exposure. …We also have another exposure, this one here, which was corrected for the highlights.…
If we click that on, you'll notice we have really good highlight detail in a few different areas. …But what I want to do is combine these two exposures together. …To do that, we are going to go ahead and click into our Background layer. …With the background layer for the most part this looks great, except our highlights are overexposed. …What that means is that this image won't print very well. …So I want to darken those highlights. …To do that, let's navigate to the Select pulldown menu, and here we are going to choose Color Range. …
