Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Thank you for posting this and for doing a video too. I've never used the selective color adjustment layer before. I'm sure it will serve me well. It's always amazing to me how many different ways there are to do things in photoshop.

I hope your shoulder is all mended.

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Thanks Swampy for a great tutorial

So useful. Just found your tutorial after struggling for several days to fix what was otherwise a promising sunset pic from a viewpoint I'll probably never be able to find again!

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Swampy, excellent tut. Thanks for taking the time to throw that together. Sometimes, I like to use the selection and delete the sky altogether and paste in my own from one of my many sky shots. Get well, soon. Wish I could PS your shoulder back to health for you ~ Kirk

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Swampy,
I would really like to view your "Fixing a blown out sky" video, but only have a 56K dial up connection, and it is taking forever to download. Is it possible to get this as a pdf file? If so where. I am in dire straights. We go to the printer on Friday, and I need to resolve this one as it is a cover photo.

Christo...

The basic information you need is right in the tutorial step-by-step. I included 5 pictures of the progressive steps.

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Dear Swampy,

Sorry for taking so long to respond. This past week has been deadline and print week, always a hectic time resulting in little sleep, not enough time, etc. I will be off for a nap shortly.

I thought I downloaded the full sized images, but in checking today, it looks it was the thumbnails-hence the inability to se the images.

I will try this again-although tomorrow.

Thanks again for you patience and assistance. I will let you know how things turn out.

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

My first ever tutorial understood (by me) within a few minutes or ever.

I must have attention deficit disease or something..........

What's the subject?

Thanks Misses Swampy!

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

What if the blown out portion is not the sky, but a white garage as in this case?

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

Christo, This may not work as well on the garage door. I would first try a Shadow/Highlight adjustment and go from there. From your picture, I can't tell what the object or structure is to the right of the garage door (fence? shed?) and that may have to be handled separately.

Re: Fixing a blown out sky

I just wanted to add my thanks for this tutorial video. Great technique, exactly what I was looking for. I've been using it with great success on some B&W conversions, too.

Many thanks, Swampy!
