This video explores shifting the whites in an image.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie I used…a vibrance adjustment layer to help build density…in a flat sky.…To make the blues of a sky bluer.…But when you have a sky that is blown out,…where there are no blues,…vibrance won't work.…There simply isn't enough color information to work with.…Instead, I can use a selective color adjustment.…I'll come to my list of adjustment layers…and choose selective color.…Now the colors that I want to work with…are the whites.…And because I want to make quite a drastic change…I have this set to absolute,…rather than relative,…which will be a more subtle effect.…
I'm going to increase the amount of cyan,…slightly increase the amount of magenta,…decrease the yellow,…and slightly increase the amount of black.…Here's the before,…and here's the after.…Let's take a look at this second example…where the sky is completely flat,…no detail whatsoever.…So we are going to be shifting from a flat white…to a flat, there is still goonna be no detail in there,…but a flat light blue, at least.…And I'll add the selective color adjustment…
