Create Cold Tone Light Leaks in Photoshop

November 19, 2015

This technique uses the Gradient Adjustment Layer, Blending modes and Levels to create light leaks with a difference. Using Gradient Adjustment Layers rather than the Gradient Tool means you can precisely position gradients. Another advantage is that if you record Gradient Adjustment Layers within a Photoshop action, they will look identical in all images regardless of image dimensions. This is because they're applied according to angles and percentages. [More]

Tinting With the Photoshop Gradient Map Adjustment

November 9, 2015

There are many ways of tinting an image, and many of those ways I employ regularly, sometimes trying multiple methods on a Tint-Scary-Gradphotograph to get the best result because, as you regular users know and you newer to Photoshop will soon learn, every image is different and no one method will work – or work the same – 100% of the time, and different methods, of course make for different results. For the purposes of this article, however, I’m focusing on the Gradient Map adjustment layer for tinting, and using one custom gradient with the crazy hex value combination [More]

Lightroom Radial Filter Lighting Effects

November 2, 2015

The Radial Filter in Lightroom has been around for the past few versions, and as a local adjustment, it seems straightforward.

With its soft edges and configurable effects, you can create a variety of lighting effects. In this video, we take day to night and add some dramatic spotlight effects using the Radial Filter in Lightroom. [More]
