      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

need help with photoshop

Recommended Posts

I am printing some pictures, and one of them is too washed out. I'd like to intensify the colors (specifically the yellows) in P-shop.

 

Can someone tell me how to do it? I can barely do anything in P-shop, because I am a stupid woman. wink.gif

depends what version of photoshop it is. If it is fairly recent, you can apply an adjustment layer (Layers -> Adjustment Layers -> Hue/Saturation) and do a lot of tweaking, or you can just apply to the entire image (Image -> Adjustments -> Hue/Saturation)

If you have 7.0 you can do the following:

 

Image-->Adjustments-->Color Balance

 

Also try to work with the brightness since you are working on a brightening the image by color.

For a Mac: Start Photoshop. Go to Image -> Adjustments -> Color Balance.

 

For a PC: Start Photoshop -> DLL error -> Reboot -> Start Photoshop -> Open file -> File is corrupted, WTF? -> Close Photoshop -> Open Photoshop -> Are you files are belong to us! Down with United States! -> Blue Screen of Death! -> Swear like crazy. -> Grab monitor, throw it through the window! -> Take the case and bash it with an axe! -> Fuck you Michael and Bill! -> Shot of Tequila -> Have a smoke -> Fuck it have 5 smokes you just threw a monitor out your window and the landlord is going to be pissed -> Go down to U Village Apple Store and by a real computer.

Color Balance is good when the original subject was under odd lighting, but most times Hue/Saturation is best for bringing out color contrast. Make sure you check and uncheck the preview checkbox to compare changed and unchanged. And try Image > Adjustments > Levels, moving the middle slider to the right if the image is too bright. check and uncheck, making sure there are no areas of solid color on screen, and then on the precious photo paper printout. The places to look are areas that are similar in color, like a snowfield. Don't save over the original!
