Even though I learned a little bit about Photoshop when I was 10 years old, I didn’t know how to use the majority of the tools until joining my high school yearbook staff and taking a photography class in college. Down below are a few tools I learned how to pick up on in high school and college:
On and Off The Yearbook Staff:
- Edited multiple image lighting (Brightness/Contrast)
- Coloring B & W Photos
- Changing Image Resolution to 300
In & Outside of College Photography Class:
- Using the spot healing tool to get rid of unnecessary junk on the sides and in the background
- Using the color balance to balance out the color of an image
- After coloring someone’s eye colors in a b & w image, I lowered opacity and fill to make sure the eye colors look natural
- Learned how to create a photography book with page layouts (using photo page)
- Create New Layer and label it as “Teeth”
- Select “white” as the color to lighten the teeth up
- Click on “soft light” at the bottom right hand corner beneath “layers”
- Use the brush tool to apply the color
- To decrease the light, select opacity and decease the light to 57%
