Hello, everybody, I want to remind you of something very important. Everything we do in this whole course can be done in many different ways. So if you have any other way to do it, do it. And now let's start our first lecture will open your file from file new. Make the Width 40 and high 30 and of course, centimeters, resolution 300. RGB and a bit.

Okay. Open the printer image in Photoshop, then drag it to the file. Then close the image. Make Free Transform, flip it horizontal and move the center pivot right here. Just talk enlarge the image like this a little bit. Yeah, that's cool.

Not the image to be in a confident place individually. A bit down a notch down a little bit. Okay, yeah, this is fine. And now let's start using the pencil. Yeah, the pen tool. Lovely.

Take one big line like this. Be smart using the curves how to deal with it. Yeah, and the long one again. Yeah, this. Yeah, don't skip any part. A Look at this slow smooth curves like this.

And another one. And down we go here and the other curves and a long line longer curves in here. And look at this tiny part. You know, you can't miss this one. You have to be smart and cut it right. And take another one.

And here's another small tiny part take it also. And like there's another one and a girl Another line, just be patient. Don't ever hurt. Don't you ever hurt me the supporting part is the most important part in the whole process. Yeah, I love the curve up. And we're almost there be patient We're almost there.

And another one and look at this curve. Nice curve, nice smooth one. And another curve. We're almost there. We're almost there. Here.

Okay, another curve, another long line curve. Then we'll make a selection. Standard 0.8 pixels. Okay, and copy and starting the mask of the table. Yeah, like this. And, at the end, take it all off the table.

Okay, and delete these two layers. were named to the printer and this two table and put them in groups. Now we'll put the background image in Photoshop and drag it to the file. Yeah, like this, then close this send it to back. Then make features form and flip it horizontal to match the direction of the printer. enlarge, enlarge it to becomes matched the perspective of the printer.

Yeah, like this. A little bit to the left, we pivot trick to the right in order more legit, be patient. The logic more Okay, a bit to the left. All right, I think this good zoom 100% look it's it's low res image. So I think I'm gonna make Gaussian Blur because it's already blurry background 2020 notes when it's too much I'm gonna make eight eight is good. Yeah, see the difference?

I know that's better. Yeah. Okay. Yeah reminder OLS judging image quality in 100% of all it is so important. we name it thing group the layer. As you see the black at the front and the back of the background had the same level of darkness.

So we need to reduce it in the back to make more depth. So I'm going to create a new layer to Soft Light and the brush tool with the white color to make more depth at the end of the picture. pop up there and there The bed a little bit in the dark places into the fence. That's better. Okay. Yeah.

Do you see the white place like this? We need to increase the white only. So it makes electric color a year. increase it. Yeah. Okay, that's nice.

I like this. Okay, yeah, see the difference? Now use curves to darken the background like just there. Okay, that's nice. And then make it let me honesty to take the same tones of the background. Okay.

See the difference? Yeah, that's lovely. And I'm gonna take out from here a little bit from here. hear from he also like this okay I like this better and the gradient to take out from here. Just give me a source of light here and more more distance. Beautiful.

Okay that's more then add color balance layer and in shadows add more sign in blue. Yeah more sign blue see difference and emit tolls time pretty good a little bit of blue things better highlights a bit yellow. Always judged after and before always do this. It's so important. And now we're going to take the player image and drag it to the file. make a selection and copy this area which we need.

We may Free Transform and Flip a horizontal arrow over to the corner and larger or more. Okay. Set black points using curves to make it more focused. But for those This you know, the rays are too intense it's too harsh. So I'm going to use Gaussian blur to make it a little softer. So this Gaussian Blur okay 20 pixels CFM for this good air we're gonna make it scream.

Yeah, I love the smell of tears. Okay, I'll see before and after. Yeah, that's too great. And we're gonna name it player and the slayer depth. Gonna take them all deleted, see the difference and get back. Closer Of course.

Let's go to the table. It's textures to bed and it near yellow brown colors to a color harmony with blue in the background. So we open up with texture image and drag it to the file. Then close this copy and Create Clipping Mask adjusted to the table edge. And this to adjust this to match the printer perspective. Yeah, a little bit from the left up a little bit.

And from the right, we'll lift it and stretch it up. Yeah, I think we're getting close. A bit to the left. Okay. Bit a bit from down there. And I need to make this slide parallel to the line to get right perspective.

Yeah, no. pull this up. and adjust this to Yeah, okay. We'll lift it up. Yeah, we're getting close. Yeah.

Okay, a little bit for the ride. Okay, and you see these lines on the table. I wanted to make it the right perspective with a printer. That's too important. It's too lovely. I like the stand.

Okay, close. Okay. A little bit. Okay. From their little bit from here. Yeah, that's nice.

So, k and we're gonna rename it with texture. As we see the texture, need more highlights to add a volume to it. You see? It's more more highlights. Okay, so we're gonna duplicate it. Create Clipping Mask.

It said black only using curves. Click on any shadow point take the highlights only saturated and make screen and rename it to highlight. Oh, sorry about highlights. And we're gonna use the eyedropper to copy it metal color like this. See the difference? In Hue Saturation color colorize it increased the situation to make a bite 2120 Okay.

That's great. suit. Introduce them. To 50% That's good. Yeah, took a good look this afternoon for see the difference. There are more highlights there.

Yeah, I like this. That's better. Take a good look. Okay, and then we're gonna we're gonna convert this layer to smart object. And we're gonna use color or color. In we're gonna use the clarity here, just to make it more specified more or good look, you know?

Yeah, that's it. Okay. We're gonna use this to strengthen the wood texture. Yeah, that's good. See after four. Yeah, that's a love curse.

Hide these two layers and make a selection to the shadow area from the previous table. Drag it up. Make it multiply, set white point using curves and press on bright area to make more focus on the shadow like this and it needs to lighten up more. So we're going to use curves. There's a little bit this makes it softer. You know when when we use it in the middle of it, it affects all of this.

So, we're going to use this upper part makes it softer, and it affects only the lights that we're going to use the eyedropper again to add color to the shadow and rename it shadow and hue saturation and colorized and use the eyedropper to take the color to affect the saturation difference. Okay, let's good. Gonna make a mask. And we're gonna lighten up this part because the source of the light of text, this part can be any shadow in this a little bit from town using gradient for the left, see the difference doctrine for OLS? As we said use after before, see what you have done. That's good.

Bit from there. A little bit from down there. Okay, yeah, it's getting brighter and the shadow are better. Yes over there. We can use the brush a little bit to lighten up these parts and we're going to use the heat situation Again, and put it down to Slayer that affect the shadows. And we can take from this eyedropper, the mid tones and the plus eyedropper to take all the other red tones to effect direct towards the table as we need it.

So I've got to make it a little yellowish to make a nice harmony with the blue background and the saturated bed. Okay, that's good. And after that's better, and we're gonna make a little bit lighter to the whole table. And we're gonna use the curves again, to make it a little darker in the shadow parts. Only the shadow parts yeah Okay, and of course we're gonna take out the source of the lights and the table here is the brush and the masks course. And here, light it up a little bit more.

See there? Okay, that's nice. So you see the shadows now are peeling very well. And the lights also good can use the curves again, to make it lighter, a little bit softer before, okay, and we're gonna make an invert of the mask and take out only the spider area and to give me the sleuth look of the source of light Okay, that's good. Gonna Make a new layer and make it so slight. And then we're going to use the brush tool to add more lights.

Yeah, right here to make the poor but the table better. Don't miss the study part over there. Don't miss it. Okay, that's better. Yeah. And we're going to talk in the shadow parts a little bit with a big brush.

From there and there. Okay, that's better. Get in last for better here like this. See the before and after. Take a good look. This before and after.

See what else What do we have done here? The fact of lights, the curves. app is better. And we're gonna put some vibrance in it. We're gonna reduce it. A little Bit two negative data it's good okay we're gonna use nine negative nine a to fade okay in red and then complicate these layers and merge it together and close the original ones No need to blur the edge just to get into the more to get in the mood of the background.

Yeah like this that's better yeah the play using the blur tool of course in Just be careful using it not to mess it up a little bit. A bit at the edge more at the edge. Does the background is not a focus of course. So we need to put it like this. Yeah, can it more blurred more blurred? Okay.

Right at the table layer to be more blurred not to be Ross. Okay? I think something, I don't like it here. So we're gonna get back to history. And this merge layers, we're gonna put it and we're gonna click, Alt click to get back what we have done with the eraser tool, and we erase this part. Okay, and we're going to get back to the blur tool and just blur a little bit a little bit there, there, there.

Right, that's better. Just take it easy easily. Don't rush it. Take it easy, focused on the H. Now we're gonna create a new layer and get also down the shadow. Not effect the shadow alga is eyedropper to take the tones or the background to stay on the table to get him more in the mood you know so yeah that's better I'm gonna of course what it is so slight yeah take this bluish lovely color from there and affect the edge also again and again and again. These tiny bought them makes a beautiful Okay, so can you see before and after See?

Yeah like the difference. Lovely. Now we're going to go to the printer and we need to darken the highlights area to match the visual light. So we're going to use curbs to darken a little bit from here from zero to darken all of it and we're going to fill it in black. A main effect on highlights area only. Yeah later Yeah a bit better The reason I did this because the source of light it's not that harsh on the table so it can be like this of the printer you know?

So we're gonna reduce the highlights a little bit yes mood All right. Yeah right here. Right there. Little bit. Love this. Of course decrease the positive creases like you want it I'm gonna make a new layer clipping mask to make it so slight and we're gonna take a color off the background and put it a little bit on the edge.

No, I do this because I want the picture to be all in one mood. You know the printer. Yeah, the one they see They believe it's this it's on that table and the background is the real background of this picture you know just fill it in fill the mood of it a little bit from background the edges and but hear back from the whiteboard background yeah see that's better this tiny parts make it more beautiful course I love this and also can use the eyedropper to take a color of the table and we do the same like the background. The printer, the edge of the printer here and here to give me the nice mood. It makes me believe that the printer it's on the table, this background. Yeah, that's lovely.
