© Copyright 2009 Smartwink and PhotoshopTallon-t This will hopefully answer those questions which you may have about changing lighting on a picture, and showing you how to change the colour of things to a professional level, and also the backgrounds of the image. For example, in a studio or outside you may have a background that is plain or distracting to the rest of the photo, so you want to change it. Let’s say your changing it to a white background. You delete the background using the Polygonal Magnetic Tool, and you then use the Dodge tool to lighten the edges, so that it has a realistic 3D look to the object or person and not a flat 2D look. You then lighten the brightness and the contrast on the picture so that it matches with what would normally be a white background. Then, if you still want to highlight any colours on that image, go around the specific area with the Polygonal Magnetic Tool and then copy and paste that into a new layer and desaturate the colour in the other layer, so that the layer with the part you want colour in has a lot of colour in. Either that or you just take the area after using the tool and copy and paste it into a new layer and then changing the colour on that layer. I hope that this video helps you out and hopefully fixes any problems you have.
