Now go to Image >Adjustments >Variations to change the colour of the whole scene. First click on ‘More Blue’, then on ‘More Cyan’. Click ok.

Then to sharpen the image, go to Filters > Sharpen > Smart Sharpen. Keep the Amount: 131 and Radius: 1.3px.

To adjust the shadows and highlights, go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and set the following values shown below:

Step 114

To create some final effects, I added a Curves layer to give the scene a slightly yellowish tone:

Then apply a Color Balance adjustment to enhance the lighting:

I wanted to add some contrast to the whole image. So create a Gradient Map adjustment layer. Go to Layer >New adjustment layer >Gradient map. And apply those values (the numbers indicate the color codes). Set the blending mode to soft light and opacity 16%

Step 115

Add Curves adjustment again to brighten some part of the scene. Fill the layer mask with black and use a white brush to bring back the brightening effect from the sky, mountains and the surrounding areas near the bottle.

Then apply a Color Lookup adjustment, select ‘filmstock_50’ and decrease the opacity to 15%.

Group all these adjustments together and name it ‘Final Adjustments’.

Step 116

And finally, select the topmost layer and hit Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E to merge all the visible layers into a single layer.

Name this layer, say Camera Raw Filter. Go to Filter > Camera Raw. Prior applying the filter, convert this layer into smart object by going to layer > smart objects > convert to smart object.
Use the values shown below:

  1. I have to say, this may be long but it is the most complete tutorial I have ever seen and I have been looking at tutorials for 20 years. Thank you for the assets, your time and your expertise. It's wonderful. Don't worry about people with short attention spans! XOX

  3. Awesome tutorial. I always wonder how much patience these guys have to write such a long and detailed article.

  4. It means that the .exe file is missing. Sometimes it happens because you have had a previous version of it and accidentally deleted it. But maybe you are installing it from a CD-ROM and it doesn't have the file or it is located in another folder. Try to open the folder ahead i.e.: C:users-AppDataLocalAdobeOOBEPDAppDECore and see if there is any exe file. Another reason could be the path's name.
