This is my description. It's super cool and intelligent and witty and articulate. Aren't you impressed?
A bit later than I promised, but here’s the PSD I use in editing many of my screenshots.
- 1 PSD with a vibrance layer, so make sure the version of photoshop you’re running is compatible (CS4 or above).
- This PSD is not inteneded to be used out-of-the box on every photo. You must go in and adjust the opacities of different layers every time you use this, and sometimes you will need to turn certain layers off altogether. Think of this as like the IKEA furniture of PSDs: a certain amount of assembly is required. Play around with it and get a feel for how each layer works. If you try and use this as a one-size-fits-all no-adjustments-necessary PSD your pictures will not look good.
Tips and Tricks:
- If your picture is too warm or the blues are a little dull with this PSD, try toning down or turning off the “Peachy Highlights” and/or the “Warmth” layers.
- To really get some contrasty pop, duplicate the original picture (base layer), position the duplicate above the base layer and under your adjustment levels, set the duplicate to soft light and adjust the opacity to your liking. I have done this to the image used in the PSD file as a little reminder to anyone who downloads this that the soft light copy layer is a nifty little trick to pull out and pairs well with this PSD. This also works with the screen blending mode to brighten images.
