in this section. We're going to take a look at color adjustments now when it comes to color adjustments, there are a bunch of choices, but there are two general varieties were going to use. One of them is what I would call a warm, cool adjustment, which is where we're gonna have sliders. Where if I move it in one direction, my image is going to become warmer. That means more yellow, orange, red. And if I move the same slider, the opposite direction we get the opposite, which is it's going to become cooler, which means more blue Scion green. And that's what I call a warm, cool adjustment. Then the second type of adjustment is quite different in its one, where it's going to spin colors around a color wheel. Um, meaning it's good for color manipulation. Where if I will have a blue car and I wanted to be a red car, then I'm going to go for the kind that spins things around a color wheel. But before I get into any of these, I want to mention that you should always trying to get the most out...
of your images when you're if your images captured as a raw file do so in adobe camera raw because it's the only time when photo shop has access to all the information your camera captured in. Therefore, if I wanted color correct a picture, first place I'm going to go to is camera. If I want to make slight changes to the color, I'm going to do it in camera. And it's only when I get to something that is difficult or impossible to do in camera that I'm going to rely on the techniques we talk about here in this lesson. But I bring that up because a lot of people assume that I just skip Camera rock is I don't use it in this particular lesson. Well, it's because this class is about photo shop, but we got to get into those adjustments. So let's take a look. Eso first. Let's take a look at what I would call a warm, cool adjustment and one of those would be color bounce. If I use color balance, you're gonna find there are sliders and you're gonna find a warm color on one end of the slider, like red or magenta, where yellow and you're gonna find a cool color on the opposite side of the same ciders like Scion green and blue. And the reason why you find that with these sliders is every color has an opposite. We're in this case. The opposite of Red is Scion, and that's why they're on opposite ends of the same slider. And what that means is any time that you increase the amount of red in the image, it's like having a seesaw teeter totter. If you're increasing one side, you're automatically decreasing its opposite in, so in here. If I move this to Wards Green, there is no way for me to move it towards green and towards magenta the same time. Because the two colors are opposites, Green absorbs magenta ed. The opposite of blue is yellow. Now notice in here that we have the colors of red, green and blue. Well, you're gonna find that many adjustments and photoshopped that are warm, cool adjustments. Will Onley show you those three colors, for instance, here is levels, and it offers the choices of Red, green and blue war. If I come in here and use curbs, it also offers red, green and blue Well, any time you see those choices on Lee. Those three choices isolated where you don't find purple and yellow and other colors in the same menu, but instead it's just red, green and blue. That's because your picture is in RGB mode, and that means behind the scenes. It's made out of red, green and blue, and it's allowing you to adjust those components. But the main thing to keep aware of is any time you see those three colors, all three of them have opposites. And if I were to go into color balance, I'd see those opposites. And so it would be useful over time if you were eventually to remember the opposite of red, green and blue because it is so common that you find those three colors listed in Futter shop. But it's not gonna list their opposites, and that means I might choose in menu called Blue. Even though I'm thinking about its opposite color. I want to make something look more yellow, but I just don't have a menu called Yellow. I have one code blue. If you know that they're opposites of each other, then reducing the amount of blue is the same is increasing the amount of yellow. So one way to remind yourself of the opposites is to either go to the adjustment I just showed you or to come up here to the window menu and open the info palette in the info palette. With default settings, you'll usually find RGB, which stands for red, green and blue directly across from their opposites, which is sai in magenta and yellow. And I often have this panel open when I'm adjusting the color of a picture. So if I just glance up at it, if I don't recall the opposite of red, green and blue, I just glanced right over there to see what they are. Now, if you're gonna end up using this panel, I like having be small because I don't need to know the information that usually appears at the bottom, and I don't want it hogging my screen real estate. So I'm gonna go to the side menu of the info panel. And remember, I got that panel to appear by going to the window menu. This lists all the panels you could possibly have. Then I'll go to the side menu, the info panel and choose panel options, and I'm gonna turn off these checked boxes that are found at the bottom in by turning those off when I click, OK, that panel become smaller and therefore, I don't mind leaving it open on my screen. It's not hogging the space so much.
