One of those days that required playing with Photoshop again. Pressing buttons, adding layers and filters and basically “painting” instead of photographing a subject.
Took a raw photo I captured a few weeks ago and imported it into Photoshop.
It was one of those drive by shooting photos, nothing special about the capture. Somewhat a bland, flat capture, but one that caught my eye because of all the shapes involved.
Since I had no particular idea of what I wanted to do, just wanted to play around with what is available in Photoshop in order to see what each tool does, that is exactly what I did.
This is actually the way I learn something best, just experimenting until it sticks.
I ended up with this photo concoction.
In case you are wondering, I obviously played around with the colors and then added two separate smoke overlays, which I then masked some of the areas so as to blend in with the structures. Then I proceeded to save this masterpiece.
But when I saved it to my desktop…this is what happened.
I have no idea as to why, between leaving Photoshop and landing on the desktop, the colors changed, but they did. I tried it a second time and once again, the same thing happened.
I decided to do a screen shot of the photo while in Photoshop ( that’s how you are seeing the second photo) so as to have a record.
If any of you have an idea as to why the colors changed please let me know.
You used Photoshop instead of GIMP? You started drinking a little early? Mercury’s in retrograde again? No, wait, that’s a song by….
John I am going to go with the song…..makes more sense than anything else 😊
That happened to me the other day when I was playing around with photoblog so I took another image and tried it again and it changed in up load so I researched and never could figure out why and after awhile I gave up because it was not fun anymore hahaha Good Luck
Thanks Tom for your comments 😉
I don’t use PS but hope this YouTube helps :
Thank you so much Nancy for finding this video. It answered all my questions and then some. For example one thing I did on this photo is use save as instead of export, and never looked at the color settings, hence the variance between the one on the screen and the one I saved. Now I also learened what the difference between saved as and export is. 😊
You’re most welcome, Camellia.
