The Painting Light Look

Posted in , ,

Easily paint light into your photo to stir up the style. Start by cropping and developing the tone and color. Add a Sunshine filter to add some contrast and fall color. Mix in a couple local adjustment layers so you can add light and dark into specific areas. Finish with a Vignette to taste.


• Crop & Center
• Set Tone & Color
• Add Detail with Structure
• A Dollop of Sunshine
• A Brightening Local Adjustment Layer
• Darken Local Adjustment Layer to Add Drama
• Garnish with a Vignette

    Oh man I am so happy I switched from Luminar to On1 and finally can dump my subscription to Adobe… I only found out about On1 from another Skylum customer, who, like me needed a solid platform to develop my photography on.

    Can I say, “THANK YOU”….

    Merry Christmas On1
