Photoshop CS2 workflow tutorial
want to enter in the value of 244 for the R, G & B sections. When you are done, you will wantto tick the “Save as defaults” checkbox and then click the OK button. We are done!With the auto colour set to our custom settings for increased accuracy, we can now proceedwith the rest of the tutorial.
The first thing that we need to do is open the image in Photoshop CS2 and I then get rid of any dust spots, etc. I use the spot healing tool, the clone tool, and sometimes even the patchtool, depending on the image. I usually select the zoom tool, and then click on the
button, followed by the
button. This gives you a larger working area on themain image canvas, making it easier to de-spot the image, with less having to drag thezoomed area around the navigator window. For most dust spots, the spot healing tool doesjust fine. Remember, you can change the size of the brush by using the
keys on your keyboard.For large areas where I’ve cloned, I’ll usually do a rough selection with the lasso tool, feather it (usually around 30 pixels), and then add around 1% Gaussian blur, followed by 0.3% noise.I find that this helps make the cloned area look a bit more natural. Feel free to experimentwith the amount of blur and noise, depending on the image etc.
