Photoshop: Color Curves

PhotoshopIcon Photoshop: Color CurvesPhotoshop: Color Curves

Images can sometime not come out as expected. For example your in an underwater aquarium and take a few snaps of the fish but the image never looks good, either they are milky due to the camera looking through the glass or the water gets in the way and causes the images to look too blue or too white.  Photoshop can fix this problem with the use of Vibrance & Colour Curves.

What are Color Curves In Photoshop?

Colour Curves (not to be confused with Vibrance) use a mathematical table where each pixel is assigned a colour value, by using Photoshop you can take control of the image and make it darker or lighter by dragging the colour line.  For example when you see the colour chart blues are defined in a specific area of the colour map and my simply dragging you can change all blues associated to green if you want.  Imagine a picture of someone wearing a blue shirt, with colour curves you can reassign all the colour values to green (mathematically).  Don’t worry, this can be achieved by dragging so no egg heads need apply for a job, just a simple drag with the mouse and you can change the colours in no time.  Okay so with colour curves you can adjust the images brightness, colour and even (if you’re not careful) inverting the image to a negative!

This video will give you an example as to how it works and things you can do with an adjustment layer when you have it applied. With “Color Curves” within Photshop can get you around some (if not all) of these issues.

So sit and follow this video with some of your images and trust me… you will be pleased with the results!

    What if I have to adjust the color/brightness of a specific part of a photograph? Would the color curves help me there too? If so, how? Awesome tutorial though..
