by Philippe Dame on March 10th, 2011

Dirk Metzmacher created a great round-up of Photoshop tips for photo retouching. You can find it on the Smashing Magazine website which is a great resource — I recommend you check them out even if you don’t need any tips on Photoshop.

Here’s a preview of tip #4 of 17, “Color Look With An Adjustment Layer”:

In this first part of a two-part series, Dirk covers:

  1. Naturally Increased Light
  2. Simulate Infrared Images
  3. Levels
  4. Color Look With An Adjustment Layer
  5. Controlling Mid-Tone Contrasts
  6. Sunset
  7. Creating Smiles
  8. Colorful Water Drops
  9. Skin Color
  10. Matching Skin Tones
  11. Reducing Noise
  12. Retro Look With Curves
  13. Identifying Layers
  14. Conserving Resources
  15. Classy Sepia Look
  16. Precise Positioning
  17. Applying Layer Styles Multiple Times

The second follow-up post will appear in a couple weeks. If I catch it, I’ll re-post on my blog as well.

Update March 25, 2011: The second part of the article has been posted.
