Video Tutorial: Green Grass & Blue Skies in Photoshop Part 2

This tutorial is part 2 of making grass greener and skies bluer.  This tutorial will focus on making your color look more accurate, less popped and neon. Often times people pop their colors too much.  Grass gets yellow or neon green.  Blues get turquoise. This tutorial will show you how to fix photos and work with your spring and summer pictures to make them look great but real at the same time. Enjoy!

    Great tutorial! I knew a little about saturating colors but working in the adjustments layers is new to me and would really help me not have to redo work when I have to go back because I over did it! Thanks!

    Like Julie, I’ve been doing a lot of neon-ish color. While I will still do it for artistic effect, I’m glad to know how to tone things down.

    Both of these tutorials were great!
