In this informative live-show replay, Karl focuses on key post-production techniques and the four cornerstones of manipulating images in Photoshop.
Starting with the most important concept, Karl delves into colour and colour theory, explaining why it is so important to understand the RGB colour model. He also explains how, by understanding hue, saturation and luminosity, we can make almost any adjustment, including ‘sharpening’ an image, ‘removing’ creases in clothes or even smoothing skin.
Showing ‘before’ and ‘after’ examples of some of his own commercial images, Karl demonstrates his workflow and explains how he decides what needs to be retouched.
As the show unfolds, he answers common questions from members. These include ‘What is noise?’, “What are the best tools for skin retouching?’, ‘How can I change the brightness of an image without affecting the colour?’ and more.
