Firstly, I selected the hair of the model (in this case Florenceand the machine) by using the magnetic lasso tool. I thenincreased the vibrancy of the hair colour to make it seembrighter. By feathering the lasso tool, it means when I selectthe area I want, there is no jagged lines around the outsideof the area. It also makes the selected area look softer,smoother and more natural.
The colour balance on Photoshopcontrols the amount of eachcolour in the picture. By adjustingthis you can put a coloured tintover a photo. As well a this if youselected an area on a photo thenused each bar on here, you canchange the colour of the areaselected.
• An easier way however, if you wanted to change a specific colour to another is to go to: This means that you can replace all colour you select by using the eyedropper tool, to another colour of your choice.
• Another thing you can do is switch areas of or even the full image to black and white. This doesn’t look a natural but I think still gives a good effect.
You can also superimpose backgrounds onto the image. This doesn’t give a naturaleffect but it is a good skill to have and use when making a magazine as you cansuperimpose backgrounds of for example a venue for gig/concert into an image you havetaken in room against a screen. First, copy and paste the background desired onto thesame document on Photoshop.
Then select the min focal point of the image the right click for select inverse.Then delete the background of the image and make sure the background layeris underneath the layer of your main picture.
