Rick’s Quick Photoshop Tip: Hand-Color an Image

December 10, 2009

Photo Tips, Video Podcast

Here is one of my favorite creative Photoshop techniques: Hand-coloring an image. This lesson, along with more than 100 of my Photoshop and Photography lessons, are posted on my page on KelbyTraining. Join the fun! And… hope to see you at Photoshop World in Orlando.

Hey, if you know another way of doing this, please share, and please remember this joke: Q: How many Photoshop exerts does it take to teach a technique? A: One . . . and 99 more to show you their way. :-)

    That’s a cool trick. I may have to pull some of my parents old photos and add the color to them. Thanks for sharing.
