Crop Your Image
So from here, I guess really the last thing I like to do is I like to crop, I actually have the Delete Cropped Pixels turned off, because sometimes I change my mind (laughs) or I'll screw something up or whatever, you know, on the very rare time that I'll be sitting there looking at something a few hours later, and go, aw man that was really a mistake, I can go back and change it if I've saved the PSD. So I hit Crop, hold Shift, click. And so when I'm holding Shift, I can compare, I can hold my ratio, let's move that to about there. And we could totally pay this attention to like golden ratio or whatever, you know, thingy that works for you, contrast, cropping, it's getting to be end of day, oops. You can do that, so it's cropped and it's sitting here churning away, because you've added in a bunch of stuff, this file's 2.32 gigs, so it's getting a little fluffy, (laughs) it's getting a little fat. But yeah, I would say that's pretty much it, sometimes the last thing that I'll do, becau...
se sometimes I add too much color, so this image right now has more color and saturation than real life does, not that normally people like this run around in real life, but sometimes I'll just go into my Hue/Saturation and I'll just slightly bring down the saturation just a tiny little bit, just to make it a little less bright. Yeah, so that's really how, a lot of ways that I like to make images, when I'm shooting something on composite on location, if we go here back to our beginning, so we slide this all the way down, and go Alt+click, that's what we started with and really in not a lot of time, we've gone and we've done this. And whether this is your aesthetic or not right, I mean take these skills and apply them in a way that works for you, so this isn't necessarily about, oh, doing everything exactly the same, and if that's what you wanna do, great, but if you're looking at this and all you take away from this is one or two little pieces that help improve your work flow that's awesome.
