I haven't been online much during the past weeks because of health reasons, so I haven't had time to post this even though I had it ready a few weeks back... well, now here it is...adventures in color correction: saturation
sometimes I wonder why people make things so complicated, I'm lazy, very lazy, so everything that's easy and time saving is very welcome in my world.
therefore I'm using easy reproductable techniques for basic screencap improvement (because then I can save them in actions and don't need to do the same few steps over and over again).
I've mentioned that I'm a lazy person, right? also a busy person, so I don't see the need to spend a lot of time for the basic stuff.
here's one of my techniques to get more saturation and contrast into screencaps.
it works on all high quality caps that lack of color and contrast (but are not miscolored) because I don't use picture specific techniques like curves etc for which you need to make the adjustments dependent on what the cap looks like.
the outcome is nice nontheless. and a good start to work on the actual coloring when you're finished with the basic improvement. ( Collapse )
as always: Have Fun!
