Photoshop Elements Simple Enhancement
Sometimes all it needs is a simple adjustment in Photoshop Elements to make a “good picture” to a “nice photo”. As digital photographers we all know the importance of “Histogram” in capturing the correct exposure. Did you know that in Photoshop Elements “Histogram” and understanding “Levels” can save us lots of time?
Here is an example of how by understanding Histogram and Levels you can make a simple enhancement which changes your photos from “Ah” to “What a nice picture! Did you take it?!”
I took this picture in one of our outdoor photography workshop.
As you can see it is not a great photo, it is washed out and faded. First thing first. I open the “Adjustment Layer” and checked the “Histogram”.
I noticed that the image does not have enough “Black Point”
Then I started to adjust the Shadow and Mid tone till the colour and contrast popped out
Here is the “Before”
And here is the “After”
As you can see understanding the tools in Photoshop Elements helps you to apply a simple enhancement and get the result in no time.
