Augustine Makachemu: Hello and welcome to GrafxTV. My name is Augustine Makachemu. In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to make your pictures look stunning in three easy steps. Okay let's dive into it.
First what you want to do is open up your image that you need to edit and on the layers panel you need to right click and duplicate the layer. Okay, step number two you go sort of the blending modes and choose soft light. Okay, if it's too saturated we just do is you come here under the opacity and just lower it down to in this case above say 60%, okay.
Step number three as you create have been yet. So what we're going to do is create a new layer by clicking this button fill it in with black by pressing Alt+Backspace and then come on the bottom here and click this layer mask button, choose a brush and we need to increase the size of the brush by pressing the bracket keys. Okay, so the right bracket key increases the size of the brush and the left one decreases it. So making sure that we have got the layer mask selected here we want to click ones and you can see the changes already. Now we need to click few more times. Okay I think that looks - that looks great. Okay so I'm just go to, to this layer and decrease the opacity as well, to about say 50%. Okay so let's have a look at the before and after. So I'm going to switch off all these layers, so before this is how we started and that's the change. So you can see the picture has become more saturated it's okay that's before and this after and then the beneath. Okay so that's it there you go ahead so visit www.grafx.tv for more videos or follow me on Twitter for episode updates all right thanks for watching.
