To correct the lightness or brightness in your images, you can reach for a Levels adjustment. In this video you'll learn how to use Levels non-destructively, plus you'll learn how to use the Levels histogram and sliders to visually adjust the dark and light areas of your image to create greater contrast. Happily, this technique works exactly the same way in Photoshop Elements.
Adding a color tint to a photo is a fabulous way to change its mood, or evoke a vintage or romantic feel. It's also a great way to salvage a photo whose color and lighting is rather subpar. In this video, you'll learn how to easily give your photos a unique feel by applying a color tint using a non-destructive adjustment layer in Photoshop. The same technique works in Photoshop Elements, too. Click here to visit the Quick Color Tint video on Planet Photoshop. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm proud to announce that this month I'm doing weekly videos for PlanetPhotoshop.com. Previously I contributed videos to PhotoshopUser.com to help out my overly-busy buddies Matt K. and Corey B. If you used to catch my videos over there, you can get the same practical technique video goodness over at Planet. This is actually a huge score for me as the Planet site isn't password protected, so I get to be in front of a slew of eyeballs (I'll also be uploading videos to my regular YouTube channel periodically, so don't miss those either!).
