I’m just going to play with this image. This is one that I took in this past summer with my little Canon point and shot camera. So first thing I’m going to do is I’m just going to filter sharp and unsharp mask, just do quick defog, which is 20 60. And you know what, I’m actually going to my layers and I’m actually going to duplicate this layer and I’m going to pull the whole screen mode, brighten this whole thing up and then I’m going to erase the top there and I’m just going to give this a little bit just like that. Perfect! Flatten it and I'm going to add contrast soft action and it will be as contrast soft. I'm just going to let it rip kind of like that right there and go into the middle layer. I'm going to choose my hue saturation. I'm just going to see what we got here. Kind of like that, just like that and I'm going to change my top layer to screen mode again and I'm going to bring up the opacity of it more, just like that. Take a look at my levels here, leave this just a bit.
Now, I’m just going to take my marking tool and I'm just going to give it a crop. Actually, you know what, I'm not even going to do that. I'm just going to keep that crop. I'm going to add a pen straight to it. Go .1 in the canvas size, change the color background to black. Let’s go four and four, just like that, and I'm just going to size this down for web, just like in posters right now, staring to DPI, print size and I'm just going to filter and sharpen, 500 for the amount, .2 for the radius. We just click off that, just like that. Perfect!
That’s all she wrote for that image, kind of like the way that looks. There we go. That was quick. Quick and dirty.
