Today I finished lesson 9 on the video lessons for photoshop.
I first moved my darker layer to the top above everything then I made it to where it only effected the landscape layer. I then changed its brightness to -100.
I then made a new layer called yellower to make the rocks more red/yellow. I made the saturation to 30 and the hue to 10. I then clicked on the full color thumbnail for the landscape layer and then I went to the Image menu and chose adjustments and the Shadows/Highlights. I changed the Shadows: Amount- 77, Tone-5-, Radius-200. Highlights: Amount- 33, Tone- 50, Radius- 200, and color value to 0.
I then went to the fx panel on the bottom of the layers panel and chose Gradient Overlay. I clicked on the Gradient bar and clicked on the first color stop and I changed the Hue, Saturation, and Brightness all to 20 to make a brown color. I clicked on the second opacity stop and changed it to 0%. and then changed the blend mode from normal to screen, angle to -90, opacity to 50%.
I then went and selected the quick selection tool and selected all of the dar, cracks ground area on the photo and I added a layer mask to it to brighten it.
I then doubled clicked on its thumbnil to bring up the properties panel and changed the feather setting to 100.
I then added the traveler by using the lasso tool and selected the outline of her and copied and pasted her to the strange planet photo.
Then I pressed command T and changed the width and hiegth to 32. and the x value to 1574 and the y to 1432.
I then drew the shadow using the lasso tool to slect the area and then changed the color of it using the properties panel and changed the hue to 30, saturation to 50, and the brightness to 25.
I then cose the clouds layer and went down to fx and chose color overlay and changed the blend mode to hus and then clicked the color swatch. I changed the hue to 355, saturation to 40, and brihtness to 100.
