Split Toning in Photoshop - Video Tutorial
Yanik back free in Yanik’s Photo School and today we’re going back into Photoshop, and I’ll be going through split toning in Photoshop.
I just recently did it for Lightroom and as you saw in Lightroom it’s pretty user friendly, and very easy to do. It is as well in Photoshop but I got a few more steps to take. Now the reason why I’m doing this in Photoshop because a couple of you guys wrote in and said, “Well, that’s fine and dandy for Lightroom but we don’t have Lightroom yet, so is this possible in Photoshop?”
Now if you have a Photoshop CS4 you can do that in ACR. It’s basically you’ll have the same sliders and settings as in Lightroom and you can do your split toning that way. If you’re like me and you owned an older version of Photoshop, I’m on CS3 you’ll have to do it within Photoshop and not ACR. And this is what we’re going to be doing today, so let’s get right to it.
Now first thing we need to do is turn this image into black and white, and we want to keep the colors space RGB and to see that just go into image mode and you’ll see here RGB is take off. We want to keep it there, so we don’t want to grayscale image so just for fun there are many ways you can change your image to black and white, but I’ll just use desaturate under adjustments here. There we go.
Now we can adjust it if we want or not, actually I’ll leave like that. Now once we have your black and white image we want to add our first color to the split toning, so let me bring my layers padded over because we will be looking at that.
And the next thing we need to do is going to the new layer adjustment, go into hue saturation there we go. And what’s important here is to click colorize and you’ll see a tint up here and right now it’s a blue tint. I feel I like that tint and I’ll keep it and you can play with the tint using the hue slider any which way you want. Let’s keep a nice blue and you can also play with the saturation, boosted as much as you want or not so much free is good. Click okay.
Now the next thing we want to do is double click on that adjustment layer. This menu will pop up the layer styles menu. You’re probably used to using this for drop shadows and glows and strokes and stuff, but we’re going to use this box down here called blend if and that’s really important and we’re going to use only the first slider down called this layer.
What we need to do is hold down the alt key and just click in this section. Now if you click on one side. I’m playing with the highlight as you can see there are white markers, alright. And you can see how that effects, but there is not a lot of bright colors on this image, so just split those up again. So it’s not necessarily good thing but if you hold on the dark side it’s more appropriate for this image. And the farther away you separate those two pointers, the more blending will occur and less artifacting or strong jagged color edges will appear so I strongly recommend that you don’t keep it really, really close but you split them up a little bit. And you can bring the second one in if you want less saturation for the blues. In this case right here is about right for me, click okay and we have our first tint right now. That actually looks pretty good, but it’s not split toning.
So let’s reduce step for our second color, go into adjustment layer, hue saturation, click colorize and choose a hue. Let’s go more into a yellow sepia stone, that looks good, a little bit more saturation. It looks awesome, click okay, again double click on your layer going to the blend if. Again since the image is dark I’m going to go on a dark side of the slider, alt click to get those glitters up. Now let’s have a look at the image here, and let’s move it from that we got our second color in the blue color. We still want to keep some of that Sepia-ish color in there. And that looks about right for me.
And removing the layers palette just so that we can see everything and if we go to a before black and white, and our final split tone image. So from black and white to our dual split tone image, and that’s how you do this lovely effect in Photoshop.
This is Yanik and I’m signing out and we’ll talk to you soon, bye.
