In today’s episode we show you a quick tip for making colors pop in Photoshop. This technique is perfect for a photo that is dominated by one or two Colors, especially if those Colors are complimentary. Here are some Complimentary Colors that will always look great when used together.
Red and Green – One of the images in today’s episode uses these two Colors together to create separation between the subject and her Background.
Blue and Orange – Aaron’s personal favorite Color combination. You will see this combination often in portrait lighting and skies.
Violet and Yellow – You won’t see this combination often in nature (except flowers and sunsets), but it is no less stunning than other combinations.
Select a Color Range
The first step in making a color stand out is selecting the Color range. In this episode Aaron shows you how to use the Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer to select a color. After selecting a Color, adjust the sliders on the bottom of the Adjustment Layer to include the entire Color Range.
To make sure you are selecting the entire Color Range try cranking up the Hue and Saturation sliders. This will Highlight the selected Colors and allow you to see the selected area better.
After making the right selection bring the Hue and Saturation down to zero and adjust from there. You will be amazed at what you can do by bringing up the Saturation and changing the Hue slightly.
