  1. yeah exactly I followed your instructions in this tutorial and I got god level powerful and emotional photo I want to send you my work but don't know how??

  2. It's a bad habit to use "apply image", it's a destructive workflow. Merge layers to smart objects and dublicate and apply effects on those for a non-destructive work flow. Other than that, great tutorial on how to get a grasp on "proper" effects (i.e. curves vs brightness/contrast etc)

  3. It's really nice and very important way to make photos as the desired looking, whatever is it I like this post as a designer, I appreciate you, thanks.

  4. your photo looks good, as for mine these steps made me look like a mental case. Thanks for the tutorial

  5. Great tutorial. In just 10 easy steps you are seeing a completely different image. Bravo!

  6. Ok. I am just in the beginning and honestly it doesn't do anything. I am really a beginner and don't know exactly what all mean, that's why I am trying to find step by step tutorials. What does your first step do?

  7. Can't get why to ruin such a beautiful picture, such a nice face. What you made is just something one would not recognize because it is so boring.

    1. its to make the picture more emotional. the original photo was just so boring, now look at it

  8. Thank you for this, it's a stunning effect! I found it also useful to work a little with the saturation mask to make her green eyes pop a little more.
