What's up YouTube, it's Creative Ice Media Group and I'm going to show you a really quick cool effect that you can do to your photos. It's called the lomo effect and I believe its short for lomography effect, and what it is basically it brings out the colors of your image. It makes it more rich, more deep, and it makes it stand out. I’ll show you the before and after. This is the image before. And this is after with the effect on. As you can see, it looks much more nice. For me, it kind of looks more cartoony, but it’s not the same if you do it on like humans and all this. This is just some street graffiti. So yeah. First thing you want to do is open your image into Photoshop. You see mine is here. Go into image, adjustment, and curves. Alright. On the RGB mode, you want to make a slight S shape. Very slightly, just bring some contrast out. Go into green, do the same. Slight S shape. And then on blue, you want to do the opposite. Still the S shape, but the other way. Alright. There we go. Press OK. It’s not that big of a change, but there is still bit of a change. Now, going to gradient map. Alright. This is little circle, half white half black. Click on it and press gradient map. We want our black to white gradient map as it is here. Press OK. And go change the modes. As you can see up my layer selected. Press overlay. And opacity to what you think looks good. I'm going to keep mine around 80. 83 is great for me. And as you can see, before and after. It is much more better, I guess. So yeah, this is a really quick cool effects for you guys to play around with. Sorry I haven’t made a video of a Photoshop tutorial video for a while. Just that I've been a bit busy and thank you for watching. Please comment, rate, and subscribe.
