Red Woman: Hue/Saturation?

Hello,

I am brand new to Photo Art and am excited to start tinkering with my photos to make them more artful. I found the myjanee.com tutorials and I am working through those at the moment.

I want to learn Photo Art as a basis for designing club-type fliers and posters.

I was wondering how I could go about achieving this look:

Would it just be a matter of playing with a Hue/Saturation level on the image, or has something else been done to make this reddish in color?

Thanks for any tips you can give.

Natalie

Hi Natalie,

I don't know the 'official' way of doing this technique - there is probably a filter that does it in an automated way ... I gave it a quick try and this is what I did ...

-converted to b&w
-Increased contrast with curve (image on left with curve in middle)
-Added Solid color layer, changed blending mode to color

The only reason I think they might be using this method is that there is a lot of color in the light areas. Could also be done with colorize checked in Hue/Saturation ...

To match look you could add some blur then add noise / grain.

Good luck,
Roger

I agree with Roger. Mostly you need to experiment until you get the look you like. I would suggest using Simplifier plugins and actions, colorizing and adding noise. Here's a different effect.

We use it a lot for screened in background images on posters and stuff.

No idea how they did it back then, but I just posterized (4 tones), applied red multiply layer, then put the whole thing over a pinkish layer and applied a layer mask.

Doug,

So far, so good. Just wondering what layer you put the layer mask on and where that Pink layer was in the stacking order?

I've attached a screen shot of my layer order...

Thanks,
Nat

Hi Nat

There's probably lots of different Simplifier effect out there. Others may be able to steer you to some other sites. The two I use most is Dave's Simplifier action found at atncentral.com and Amphisoft Simplifer plugin at amphisoft.com.

Cheers
Duv

Thanks Duv!

Nanaimo is such a pretty place. Do they still have those murals on the walls in town?
