In this tutorial, you will learn how to create an orange teal look in Photoshop using just two adjustment layers. However, if you're doing it in Photoshop, it's easier, more efficient, and more flexible to use adjustment layers instead. This is a very easy tutorial. So whether you're a Photoshop beginner or experts, you will grasp it easily. What's special about this tutorial is not the orange untill colors, but the technique behind it. Because once you learn the technique, you create so many different types of colors, gratings and color combination with just a few layers. For this orange untill look, we'll start by converting it from three channels to two channels. To do that, go to the adjustments panel and add a channel mixer Adjustment Layer. If you don't see this panel, you can open it by going to window adjustments here in the channel mixer properties. Go to a blue channel dot and set the green to 100% and blue to 0. This basically recreates a blue channel by using the data from your green channel. And if you look in the Channels panel, you should be able to see that the green and blue channel look exactly the same. So now your photo has two channels, which creates this red untill effect. By the way. Now, we're going to set the hue and saturation adjustment layer, which you can add from the adjustments panel. And now click on this tool here, which will let you select any area on your photo and adjust the saturation. Click on this tool here, which will let you select any area on your photo and adjust the saturation. There's a trick to this tool. If you hold Control or Command key while dragging it will adjust the hue instead of the saturation. So to shift the reds to orange, we can simply hold the Control or Command key and drag on and red area. Next I'm going drag, but this time without holding the Control or Command key on the orange in teal areas to adjust the saturation. When you're done, selected two layers by holding the control command key and then press Control or Command G to group them into layer. These are some of the examples. I have color graded it to Teal and orange. 5. How to remove unwanted object with content aware fill: Sometimes we have to remove unwanted objects or spots from the photo. In this case, content aware fill comes into play. In this photoshop lecture, we will learn about the the content aware tool, the content, and where is the easiest way to remove the unwanted objects from the photo? The Content Aware is very easy and important tool. So without wasting any time, let's get started. Suppose we want to remove this part, makes selection of this portion. You can make selection with a rectangular marquee tool. Hold spacebar and drag the selection. Then position at across this spot. Go to Edit, Fill, content aware, press the OK button. Now we have removed the unwanted part. Press Ctrl D to Deselect. Now let's try with this part. You can make selection with the rectangular marquee tool. Go to Edit, Fill, content aware, press the OK button. Now we have removed the unwanted part. This way we can remove unwanted objects in seconds.
