Learn Basic Photo Editing To Enhance Colours/Light/Contrast
Hi everyone! Here is a tutorial I've been working on for anyone that is new to photo editing. I wanted to show you two very easy ways to dramatically enhance the colours, contrast and light balance in your photos. I work in Photoshop, but I think that the methods I show would be fairly similar in other photo editing software. So, if you look at the image above, you can see how much you can improve photos that come out a bit dull and dark, but this is also a great way to make good shots stand out even more! I am going to use this photo to show you the technique. The first thing I always do with a new photo is to adjust the Levels. When you have opened the Levels window you'll see this black "mountain". Click OK. Now we are going to enhance the contrast further and make the colours really pop. Now you're gonna copy the Background layer, do that by grabbing hold of it and dragging it to the "Create a new layer" icon (bottom right of your layers panel). I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
