Digital Imaging Tips by Dan Moughamian
Adobe just updated Photoshop to v12.1. (That’s CS5.1 for those of you who aren’t total hardcore Adobe geeks.)
To celebrate the update, here’s a video tutorial that covers Color Efex Pro 3 for Photoshop from Nik Software, which is a great way to add subtle color styling to your images, in order to create the mood you want. It allows you to get there much more quickly, in many cases, than by using a combination of adjustment layers and filter effects from Photoshop. Hope you enjoy it!
