I started learning how to use different aspects of Photoshop a few years back and I’ve decided to develop my skills some more.
The tutorial I am going to share today is called the Colour Splash Effect. I felt like doing this as soon as I saw the cover picture for the video.
Here is the tutorial I found for this effect.
And here are the pictures I edited.
I tried to go for a ‘black and white streams turning into colour’ sort of effect though it didn’t turn out too nicely…
This obviously turned out a lot better. I didn’t do the second half of the video (adding effects to the image and layer mask). I like how the oranges reflect onto the apple something I didn’t notice until I isolated the apple 🙂
My findings: The technique in itself is relatively easy though it will become harder depending on the picture you choose. As far as I have realized, cleaner edges = easier/faster work. It also took longer than I expected to clean up the edges.
Let me know if you try out this tutorial 🙂
