Honestly, the best thing about what you have done to this photo, has to be the reflection in the water. You made it stand out in a way that I am having difficulty achieving. Even though I have tried your method, I don't like it. I would rather work with a desaturated photo, but I just can't seem to capture that brilliant reflection effect. Props to you.

Well thank you!

I am not much a photographer myself, so I dont know the best way to touch up photos. However, I do alot of work inside of Photoshop so I figured I would make a tutorial for beginner photoshop users.

I have written a tutorial over here;


Thats pretty good, and easy to make photos that much better.

I never knew you were a photographer, always figured you were a poet!

Well godspeed, and rock on!

An excellent simple and effective tutorial!!! :+fav: I've never played with the channel mixer on B&W Images, a good technique!
photoshoptutors Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2006
cute, but to be honest you're using many destructive tools in this one.

1st, the brightness/contrast tool is destructive
to the pixels and washes out a lot of detayl.. try to mess with the levels tool instead.
2nd, the channel mixer is meant to be used before you turn the image into black and white
thus obtaining special characteristics from each of the red/green/blue layers.
if you use it after turning it all to gray, you're basically just working with the grayscale since
all three channels will be identical. best try the duplicate layer and the multiply blending mode.
3rd, nice work on the layout and explaining of things, i know it's hard work ^^;

drop by the club sometime

dylanjones Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2006
lol your right, however I did want to be all advanced. I did not use the levels because most would be like..ok im not touching that! Your also right about the pixels, but if you dont move the sliders alot then it can be pretty good. Same with the burn/dodge tool, but that is why I said only a lil bit. I have ever thought of using too layers for this effect! Mainly for this because I wanted a new one to PS to do it, and most new ones dont like layers.

Thanks for the comment!

hehe..thanx a lot. I also once went thru this book, where he changed the mode to lab colour and then selected the lightness channel and applied greyscale to it...other than that it was almost just like yours.
