Just a quick post today. It’s showery and cool with snow forecast for later.
I was awake early this morning and just browsing in Photoshop to see what I could annoy folk with. I have looked at some superb colour popped images and admired the dexterity and patience of their creators. Little tinkers could have told me. In PS Elements one doesn’t have many options and the easiest for me was to duplicate the background twice, convert the top layer to B&W add a layer mask and paint the mask with black to expose the colour beneath.
This morning in CS6 under SELECTION>COLOUR SELECTION I found a wonderful bit of kit. It’s very accurate and quick. I am supposed to be cleaning the van but got fed up and gave it a whirl.
Where I’m stopping at Glencoe Mountain Resort. One has to pop the colours on separate layers and then blend them together once popped. The magic tool will only isolate one colour at a time. I used SCREEN blend mode but try any you fancy. Then just process with a bit of dodge and burn. Check in LEVELS for clipping give it a blast of saturation and the jobs done in a few minutes. Ten minutes in this case because I lost a layer first time round.
Tomorrow I’m away down the glen to Onich on Loch Linnhe. I am if the snow lets me out. It’s raining at the moment but snow is forecast for tonight , tomorrow and Tuesday. It shouldn’t be too bad at this time of year but who knows.
The van reeks of wet dog and quite possibly wet Adrian. It is a midden I will now get down to brushing, wiping and mopping.
Have a good week.
