★ Color Toning + HDR effects without Plugins – Premium Tutorial

★ Color Toning + HDR effects without Plugins – Premium Tutorial

A while ago I wrote an article for the Creative Photoshop magazine about how to get an HDR look in Photoshop without plugins. In this premium tutorial I will show you hoe to create a nice HDR effect and how to combine that with  a color grading technique for your photos.

This technique works best on landscapes but you can also try it on portraits. I will show you how to expand the dynamic range on your image and how to remap the colors selectively. Enjoy

    At first.. Happy autumn to all :) Nature is so beautiful with all those colors right now 😀 Andrei, another wonderful tutorial from you, which is so useful to me, thank you very much :) I love old photos, the colors and all that what time have done with those photos. I think, older the picture is, more it can tell us, silly I know, but I like to think so :) But anyways.. I am trying to find, if you have made any tutorial how to make a photo look old. Either black and white or color picture. Sometimes you see a very nicely made ​​”retro pin up girl pictures ” for example.. But in my case, I’m more interested at cars and bikes. I have long wanted to try to make one myself, but no luck yet.. It may be that I asking something which does not interest you, and might be a very common occurrence for you.. But to me, I would be more than happy if you or anyone could point me the way I could look. I have thousands questions, but I think I will leave them out, so you do not have to throw me out of here :) Thank you for your time, and once again I wish everyone happy autumn, hugs :) – Nicolette –

      Hi, first of all thanks for your kind words. I do not have an old look tutorial yet but I wrote it down on my requests list and I will make it if I can.
      I know Phlearn have a quite complete retro tutorial but as far as I know it’s a pinup poster just google “phlearn” (he’s a guy like me but with much more experience) and on his website you’ll find alot of super nice free tutorial also cool premium tutorials.
