So yesterday I was given a link to a PS tut for "Color Adjustment: Selective Color"
from aLTRe-eGo. This is probably one of the greatest tricks that I have come across in a while (2nd to Baz recent Masking an Image tut)
Just because I am so proud of myself and my growing knowledge of PS here is what I learned. Thanks to everyone here who has helped me along this very addicting dvd cover creating hobby.
Here was my original Image I wanted to modify (1)
Here it is after doing the Selective Color Adjustment (2).
I did this adjustment a few times after changing some things. then saving those changes, and then reopening and doing more selective color adjustments. This seemed to work exactly as I wanted. Made the colors adjust more, in my mind.
Here is my final product.
Opened modified image (2), then put original image as a new layer, used eraser tool so the red for the body would appear, but allow the metal to be unchanged.Any ideas how I can some how make the cave background kinda look like its a volcano? In the modified red version it just seems to redish, and unreal to be a volcanic cave...
