Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Making creative color adjustments, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
Now that we've worked a little bit on the tonality of this photograph,…let's have some fun with color.…There are so many different ways that we can apply creative color effects.…Let's explore a few techniques that we can use here to add a bit of style or…mood to this photograph.…Now one of the things that we might want to do is take a look at the color palette.…It's pretty muted, but we have some nice warm, some of these reds and yellows…and green is a dominant color as well.…It might be nice to try to bring some of those out, but then just shift things…a bit more as well.…
So, how can we do that?…Well, one technique that we can use is to click on our Adjustment Layer icon and…then go straight to Color Balance.…Now Color Balance gives you just a nice visual way to add or shift color.…Here I am going to have some reds in there and then some yellows.…Now if I go too far in the yellows it looks kind of green, right?…So whenever you add yellow you almost always need to compensate, either…with magenta or with red to get it to a different space there, a different color look.…
