Hey guys, this is Clinton Jenkins with yet another Photoshop tutorial, before we start today I’m going to go ahead and link all my subscribers, I now have over 700 of them., and I just passed the 200,000 real mark which is pretty cool, we’re going here in the inside, we can check out how many I’m getting a day, it looks like close to 1,200-1,300 and as you can see as of the last of my account it’s just been slowly growing so thanks to all of you guys who watch my videos for you that rated, subscribed, etcetera; today, we are going to be creating a rainbow effect, it’s actually very, very simple and I figured this might be a great way if I connected to a making and it’s a pretty fun tutorial; very applicable to all kinds of uses, I suppose, so the first thing I do is I went out in time of photo , something with a fairly dark background and something that would look nice with various color splatter across it. So the first step is to go to Image, adjustments, the saturate, and as you can do all the color has now been extracted from the photograph. Next step which I found to help this success of our rainbow effect is just darken out the darks and make the background a little bit more uniform, so I went to that by going to image adjustment levels and as you can tell I toggled the back there, very simple. So, we’re going to want to create a new layer, lay a new layer, just title it colors, now we need to adjust the blending options which you could find, I could see as format, I can’t remember on the older Adobe versions, there should be a drop down, right above it or below it, in this case it’s a drop up and just adjust your blending mode to color. If you’re on older versions where you can’t see this little drop down, just double click and your general blending mode will be on top. Now we want to go and locate our brush tool which is right here, looks like this, it’s like a large soft brush, makes sure your harness is at zero, a diamond are really doesn’t matter, just something that, well, worked for you, depends on the size of your photograph, now I make sure my apace was lower, 30 or 40%, just to make the blending a little bit easier on the eyes but it’s up to you really. Now the next step is to locate our swatches as you can see we’ve already done so, but if you do not know how to do this, go to window and you can tell right down here it’s the swatches options, just click that, go and hit the drop down menu and choose which swatches to load. What would be a good rainbow? We could do pastel, this will work, so then go ahead and slough the first color, then I’m just going to start filling it in, and then I can just kind of evolve the colors along here, and give it a little bit too much choose there, but as you could see, just spending a little bit more time to make these colors blend correctly, it can go a long wait; really the color choices are pure or not, necessarily that great in picking colors so I don’t know if I would be doing this, but find the colors that you like and there you have it. The only problem with your pastel is sometimes you get a little bit uneven coloring like right here, but I think this is a great starting point, I think a lot of you guys will enjoy this tutorial, I hope you enjoy it and I hope you find this useful one day or go ahead and just try it right now for fun, this has been Clint Jenkins tutorial, please subscribe, rate, comment on your way out, even if you hate it and thanks for watching.
