Photoshop Tutorial Mine : from image to flickr

This post is a guest post by Lara Zankoul.

I’ve always been attracted to the tones of Lara’s pictures so I tried to talk her into sharing with us her retouching techniques and here goes her first tutorial.

Mine

1. Crop to your liking
I started with a well exposed & bright pictured and did a a square crop
LZTut01

2. Changed the color balance
Using Image – Adjustment – Color Balance I used the below values
LZTut02

3. De-saturated the picture
The next thing I did was de-saturating the image using Image – Adjustment – Hue Saturation
LZTut03

4. Apply : Image – Apply (Multiply 10% to 30% depending on image)
LZTut04

5. Variations (toward Red) – Image -> Variations
LZTut05

6. Add new layer and fill it with this color : #133e9f
LZTut06

7. Then Apply the picture again (10% to 30% – Multiply)

8. Add new layer and fill it with this color : # 0b0871
LZTut08

9. Play with curves and saturation to get a nice faded tone:
LZTut09

10. Apply image OR fix contrast to get the final picture:
LZTut10

I hope this was helpful! You can try it and show me your pictures 😀

    I'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but I do not know – if I was to crop a photo and go to print it out, say an 8 x 10, would the photo come out smaller, or does the image still come out the same as it normally would if I did not crop it? Please help, thank you.
