Cheapest photoshop tricke of all time?
So I've spent my evening picking through misc. tutorials and I came across this technique in one of them, and it's possibly one of the cheapest most simple ways I've ever encountered to give your stock images that "I have a way better camera than you" look. So here's how it works, load up your image in Photoshop, then duplicate the background layer. Desaturate this layer then set the blending mode to Overlay. Boom, your stock just doubled in value. Really all it's doing is adding an extra level of contrast to your image, but its a fast, efficient way to bump up the quality of your image. Hope it helps :) The image shows the original on the left, and the new image on the right.
Edit: Ok so apparently everyone on the face of the planet knew this but me. That is all.
