How To Apply Cinematic Color Grading To Your
Photos welcome to psdesire photoshop & photography
Youtube Channel. in this video i will show you How To Apply
Cinematic Color Grading To Your Photographs in Photoshop I want to give this photo a Hollywood style
teal-orange tone. I use two solid colour layers, one called
shadows which is teal and the other called highlights which is orange to tone the image. For this, i want the teal to only affect the
dark areas of the image To do that, double click on the layer to get
the layer options panel. The important slider here is Underlying Layer.
Drag the white triangles to the left and you will see that the teal starts to only affect
the shadows. Hold Option or Alt Key clicking on the triangles
splits them so you can feather the blending effect. Do the same for the highlights. This time,
however, we want to preserve the highlights so drag the black triangles to the right.
Once again, split them to feather the blend. Now set both teal and orange solid layers
to the softlight blend mode finally making fine adjustments to overall
layer opacities and we’re done i want to add Letterbox to give image Widescreen
Movie feel. so that take rectangle marque tool and make
selection. inverse selection (shift + control + I) key board shortcut and fill the selection with black. i want to add little whites to image with
levels, it brings noise like haze effect from shadows. it helps overall image to look like
movie shot we just developed blockbuster film look like example matrix movie etc. You can use this same method to
add color grading to your video in photoshop easily. i already posted color grading for videos

  1. Jajaja, guys I'm not an expert, but in my humble opinion this is the fastest, easiest way to get cinematic color grading and in an efficient level also. I wont use LUT in photoshop anymore. So thank you for another great tutorial. I know you also give freely the PSD file but I think I'm gonna keep trying to practice all this great tutorials first. Chao 😎

  2. For over 4 years I've been trying to master color grading and went through numerous YouTube videos. I finally found the most easiest and more practical technique through your video! Thank you!!!
