Colour Adjustment + Sharpening

Here we go again!

For this image i wanted to make the colour abit warmer and sharpen the image a little bit.

Step 1:
Open your image in PS

Step 2:
Layers > New Adjustment Layer > Colour Balance

Step 3:
Leave this window as if. Click ok

Step 4:
Colour Balance slide bars will open.

Now for this image it was a bit blue and cold. So what i have done is pulled the yellow/blue slide bar into the yellow(-20) to pull back the blue.

Next i added red(+20) to warm up the image abit more.

Step 5:
Layers > Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast

Step 6:
Next we'll brighten up the image just a little(+10)
We'll also add some contrast to make the image pop alittle.

Step 7:
Duplicate your background layer. This is for the sharpening.

Step 8:
For Sharpening I like to use Unsharp Mask.
Filters > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask

Step 9:
Unsharp Mask box will open.
Set a radius of about 4pixels, Threshold 0. Simply slide amount bar till your happy with the amount of sharpening.

For this image i only managed to pick up in Rebeccas' hair and around her eyes.

And again a before and after shot.

Hope you found this useful.
Cheers Ben
