Lesson Info

Speed Up Your Flambient Workflow with Photoshop Actions

In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to be a super powerful efficient Photoshop editor. What if I told you that with the click of a button or a keyboard shortcut, I can do things like change my ambience layer automatically to luminosity mode with opacity 50% or I could take my window pull, I could quickly set my boundary around my window pull with any sort of masking tool. And then I could using two keyboard shortcuts darken it and turn it into a inverse layer mask and press the delete key. So with three presses of a button, no mouse clicks, I have my window pull ready to go. That's all done with Photoshop action. So let me undo all of this. So to set these up, you'll need to set up your project with everything ready to go as if you were about to do the action yourself manually, then you wanna go up to window and actions. And here you can see a bunch of default actions that come pre installed with Photoshop. You also see some that I've created like my ambient layer, edit my darken...

ed window window pull and verse those are the ones I just showed you aligning layers. So I can select all of these and press F five and there are keyboard shortcuts that you can use or change for any option. But actions are better to use when you have multi step things that you're doing like changing the blend mode and the opacity or even beyond. So let me show you how to do it, for example, with the luminosity mode ambient layer. So I'm gonna set this back to reset it to create a new action. Click the plus button here, I'm gonna call this ambient layer. We can set a function key right now to be the keyboard shortcut. So I'm just gonna set it to F six for now and then you want to record. So here I'm going to record. So I'm going to select this layer then change it just as I would to luminosity mode and change my opacity to 50% and then press the stop button in this action panel. So it's recorded each step. So you can see that it's selected the layer set the current layer to the luminate nasty mode and then also set the layer to opacity. I don't actually want it to select this layer, have this select layer step in there. So I'm going to delete that because what I want it to do is just do it to whatever the current layer is that I have selected. So if I run this for this bottom layer, for example, and I just press F six on my keyboard. It changed the luminosity or blend mode to luminosity and opacity. I'm gonna undo that pretty cool. Huh? So you could do this however much you want. So for example, if I did it for this layer, you're not going to be able to automate the selection of a mask or creating your mask. But once this is set, if you want to create it for the window pull, let's create a window pull one. What are our steps for a window pull? Remember? OK. We're recording, set the plan mode to darken. We're going to option drag this into our layer mask and then we're going to press the delete key on my keyboard. Now let's pause that. So now we have this whole window pull action for this layer. So let's go ahead and go into another project. This window pull is a little bit difficult. You don't have these photos, but I just want to show you. So if I already have this selected and then I go to my actions and I run my window pull, which I didn't set a keyboard shortcut for this time. I'm just going to press the play button. Boom, just like that with one click. It created the window pull for this photo. Now this photo I had to do a little bit of editing because the exposure and everything was a bit off but in terms of that whole window pull action, it did it with one action with one click of a button. Pretty cool, right? So what I would do if you're really serious about editing Photoshop editing real estate photos and flam bent photos photos specifically is set up actions for aligning layers for adjusting the ambient layer for doing the window pull and then even for ceiling adjustments. So once you make your selection, do an action for dropping the saturation or even feathering the ceiling edge or whatever it is that you you want to include in that action. Pretty cool stuff. Thank you so much for watching. If you need help with actions, there's lots of great tutorials on youtube to dive deeper. But of course, I'm here to help too if you have questions. So thank you so much for watching and we'll see you in another video.

The course is a comprehensive learning experience and Philip's passion and expertise in photography and teaching are evident throughout the course. Key highlights for me included mastering lighting techniques, photo blending for high-quality interiors, and advanced strategies like the 'Flambient' process. This was straight forward, and easy to understand. I live in Australia an grateful that you kept the information relevant to any country.

Hey Philip, Just want to thank you for putting in the time and effort putting this course together. I’ve been shooting for 20 years but never really spent enough time on PS. This course really focuses on what you really need to know. Everything is really straight to the point. Philip provides images so you can follow along and really get a good work flow going. I personally enjoyed the

Overall, the completeness and depth of this course are excellent. The only thing that needs improvement is during the editing portion. Philip's voice was fading in and out even when the volume on my computer was set at 100%. His voice was excellent during the photo shoot portion of the course.
