To get awesome images you need awesome photoshop skills!
Even a mediocre render can be made to look great if you know how to do it. It’s simply the most important step in the workflow.
That’s why I’ve condensed my years of experience in postprocessing 3d renders into this tutorial!
This tutorial will teach you techniques for:
Dodging and Burning
Enhancing the image with render elements
Adding Camera effects
Changing the mood of the image
32 bit editing
I will try to show you how to do these thing correctly and non-destructively in multiple ways.
Here’s the first scene with a bunch of these techniques combined (click to enlarge!)
Once we cover the basic techniques we will tackle a real project from start to finish.
Here’s the resulting image (click to enlarge)
The only software required for this tutorial is Photoshop!
All the render elements and PSD files are included with the download.
I’ve also included a bunch of my custom curve presets for quickly changing the mood of the image and an instruction on how to get the most out of them.
Some people sell presets like these for more than the price of this tutorial, I’ve included them for free :)
Here are a couple of examples of what you can achieve in just a few minutes!
