Default *closed* NBK Design Challenge "Photo Editing" 05/01-05/07

Hello

it´ s my time to host the NBK Design challenge. I want to focus on photos in this challenge. In my opinion, photos are important on a layout. It doesn´t have to be a professional photo, with some tricks we can make every photo looks like a professionell.
Sometimes we have a photo of a family member, a friend or a selfie with an ugly background and it distracts the view from the main motive.

So we want to edit a photo in a little bit romantic and retro effect.

I made this video tutorial on how I made it, but you can make your own, or you can stop at any point in the video, if you are happy with your result.
The final result should be a warm, little bit retro photo with a clear difference from the original.

my steps:
1. open a photo and duplicate it, in case we mess it up
2. make a selection around your subject, by using the quick selection tool.
3. refine the edges and sage it as "new layer"
4. Press STRg and click in the thumbnail of your selection layer.
5. make your photo layer visible and activate this layer.
6. go to select - modify - expand ant type 30px
7. Hide your layer with the selection, go to Edit - Fill - Content aware
8. Press STRG D to deselect your selection ( I forgot this in the video, this is why the Tilt shift filter didn´t work, until I recognized it ) and make your selection layer visible.
9. Go to filter - blur - tilft shift
10. Move the lines so that this parts are blured which you want to. Edit the sliders of the Bokeh lights and color.... click ok if you like the result.
11. Create a new layer and choose a round brush and warm color. The size doesn´t matter, we will resize it. paint somewhere in the photo and enlarge it. Put it on a place where you like it and edit the blending mode to "Screen"
12. Put the 3 layers ( your selection, the photo and the brush) in a group.
13. duplicate the group. Make sure this layer is active and press STRG + E to change it to a layer.
14. Go to the filter gallery - camera raw filter. Here it´s totaly up to you to play with the settings. Try all ! Click ok if you like your result
15. Open the gradient map. Choose the gradient from dark violett to orange.
16. Open the color lockup and try which file is best for you. I have choose late sunset and changed the opacitiy around 30 %
17. Put the gradient map, color lockup and group 1 copy in another group and duplicate it and change it to a layer by pressing STRG + E
18. Go to filter - sharpen - unsharp mask, make the amount around 50, the radius around 2,5 and the treshold around 20. But it depends on your photo and the size !

Done ! You can stop editing your photo at any point in the tutorial if you like the result.

I not ever found the same filter or possibility, i have an older version of Photoshop, but I still managed to transform my picture and give it a romantic aspect

Hi all,

Would someone please explain this step to me?
"Press STRg"

I have no clue as to what this means, I don't have a keyboard key with that name...obviously I'm missing something here.

Thank you for this challenge. Although I stumbled along the way, I love how this turned out. It was such a nice photo of my friends, but the background was horribly distracting, and the lighting was way too harsh on her. I've never used the Blur Gallery or Tilt-Shift before, so that was fun to explore. I know they are going to love this.

Sorry it's so big. I am not good at doing this, and it took me about 5 tires before I could do this well!
