Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Unifying color and tone, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…So, let's start by deleting the black and…white adjustment layer that's on the layer's panel.…I'll select it and then just tap the delete key…so that we can see all of the colors below.…Now, I want to do two things here.…I actually want to separate the hatch from the rocks…and I want to pull the hatch forward a little bit.…So, I'm going to use a gradient adjustment layer in…order to colorize the hatch in a nice warm color.…Then, in order to make the rocks and the water…recede, I'm actually going to add a secondary gradient fill layer.…
And I'm going to tint that a nice blue color and kind of get rid…of the distracting yellow-green that keeps bringing my…eye down to the bottom of the image.…So first, let's create the gradient fill for the hatch.…On my layers panel, I'll go ahead and select the window layer.…And then, from my adjustment layer icon,…I'll choose gradient but if you choose gradient without holding…down the option key, you don't get the option to…create a gradient wash and the way you create a…gradient wash is by changing the blend mode to color.…
