| p.1 #1 · Highlights _ Shadows Tool for PS |
Hello FM Friends,
I would like to share a new action, one that I created, its (FREE) as a Happy New Year gift from me to you
Chads Hot Cool action
What does it do?:
In Photoshop its impossible to click a button to show blown highlights and shadows in Blue/Red I created an action to quickly build a layer that allows these areas to show, not only does it show them, it shows Red/Blue areas live while you are making adjustments to your work.
How to use the action:
Simply double click the downloaded action, this will load the action into PS (version 3 and up)
Once loaded you will need to show the "action" window in PS, you will see a new action loaded named: Chads Hot Cool action, toggle that open you will see the action (Blown highlight_Shadow Layer). Open an image run this action on your image by clicking the play icon on the bottom of the action palette. Once action is ran you will see a new layer named: "Keep as TOP Layer REMOVE THIS LAYER BEFORE FLATTENING" you must keep this layer on the top of all your layers, like the layer name states, you need to remove/delete this layer before flattening final image.
Why not use camera RAW histogram?:
Simple, lots of adjustments are made in PS, these adjustments affect deeps and highlights. Its best to see this when your image is in final form.
Why not use Image/Adjustments/Threshold?
Not live, does not show both nor in Red/Blue
Please Leave a comment saying if you would like the action link for download.
