In this short tutorial, I will show you how to restore color to a bland image using Layer Effects in Photoshop.
The basic idea of this tutorial is to show you how to make elegant scenes out of dull images and show you how to enhance color using layer styles.
You will be transforming this image:
Before we begin, you can use the image in the first step, however, if u want the original larger image you can download it here
Open the image:
Getting the proper lighting and exposing blackened areas:
Copy the layer. Go to the Layer menu, click on Add Layer Mask, you get two options, choose Reveal All. A layer mask will get created.
After you have done this, change the layer effect to Linear Dodge. This will over brighten the image. However, it will brighten the left area of the original image completely, this part was very dark in the original image, we can salvage this.
