00:00:05 – effective way to do some photographic
00:00:07 – color toning using gradient maps in
00:00:09 – photoshop so I've got my photo open that
00:00:12 – i want to add some color toning onto and
00:00:14 – the great thing about this technique is
00:00:16 – it only requires one adjustment layer so
00:00:19 – if i go to layer new adjustment layer
00:00:21 – gradient map we can select ok and we'll
00:00:24 – create our gradient map adjustment layer
00:00:26 – and even easier part about this is if
00:00:29 – you select the cogwheel and go down to
00:00:32 – your preset packs here you can select
00:00:35 – photographic toning to unlock these
00:00:38 – couple dozen different effects and
00:00:41 – they're already pre-made and i'll show
00:00:43 – you how easy they are to apply and
00:00:45 – adjust on your photo there's Platinum's
00:00:47 – their sepia tones different effects and
00:00:51 – some of them like this
00:00:53 – sepia tone might look good just like
00:00:56 – this
00:00:57 – however with some of them like this blue
00:00:59 – one or this greenish blue one
00:01:02 – what you can do to make them look nice
00:01:04 – on the photo is go to your adjustment
00:01:07 – layer and then either lower the opacity
00:01:10 – which kind of lowers the strength or you
00:01:14 – can set the blending mode to a few
00:01:16 – different options so some good ones to
00:01:18 – try out our overlay for a more dramatic
00:01:21 – and contrasted but colored effect soft
00:01:25 – light is similar to overlay but a little
00:01:27 – less powerful that can also look really
00:01:29 – nice or screen gives you a bit more
00:01:32 – faded in lights and kind of bright
00:01:36 – effect like a vintage or fashion
00:01:38 – photography effect so with the blending
00:01:42 – modes on or the opacity is adjusted you
00:01:45 – can go through these different tones and
00:01:47 – make one that looks nice on your photo
00:01:48 – fits the mood and vibe that you want and
00:01:52 – then adjust the opacity and blending
