Have you taken some breathtaking landscape photographs but are looking to increase the quality of the scenery? By using Photoshop the software, you can make stunning landscapes. You can perform a myriad of tasks in this area, starting from improving exposure and recovering the details and even making the colours pop and creating stunning landscapes.

In this guide in this tutorial, you’ll discover how to make the colors of your landscape sparkle in no time. If you’ve got shades that are dull or muted in your landscapes, use this guide to and make them stand out without touching any other elements.

Step 1: Start the sample Image

I’m using a landscape image taken from Unsplash, however you are able to utilize any of your landscape pictures. The hues of the landscape vivid so that they stand out and catch people’s attention. Our eyes are the way we capture the stunning beauty of cameras for landscapes aren’t able to do, which is why programs such as Photoshop & Lightroom comes into the picture.

The landscape I’m using, if you look closely, you will see that this image was taken with an eerie mood. Naturally, if you wish to let it be as is, then you might would like to make it appear more dramatic however, sometimes we require some vibrant color to bring out the vibrant colors of the landscape.

This is an image that has been that was opened by Photoshop:

Step 2 – Increase Saturation the Vibrance Adjustment

First, we’ll build an Vibrance Adjustment which you can achieve it by choosing the Layer menu and then New Adjustment Layer and then Vibrance. One tip: in case your landscape contains a lot of orange hues, you should always apply Vibrance in order to improve saturation as it can protect reds and orange tones, which will result in precise saturation for the shades.

I raised the Vibrance Levels by +44 and increased the saturation levels to alter different colors. We’ll target each color in the video tutorial.

Take note of the subtle change in the image that Vibrance adjustments have made on our photo:

Step 3 – Adjust the Brightness of Shadows

To boost the brightness of shadows, you can make use of the Levels adjustment layer. To do this, go into the Layer tab, then New Adjustment Layer Levels. In the following settings how I’ve raised the brightness of shadows by shifting the black slider highlighted the right. The effect is to make the specifics of shadows apparent, something that might be lost when the image was shot. In case you noticed, I increased the brightness in Highlights too, but carefully.

Here are my setting:

The difference you can notice is in the effect that Levels Adjustment has achieved by lifting the shadow’s level. of shadow.

Step 4 – Color using Adobe Camera Raw

Adobe Camera Raw is a flexible plugin that is included in Photoshop. In essence, it’s the similar to Lightroom and if you’re making use of the Camera Raw filter lately that could mean you’re mastering Lightroom too. Both programs use the exact method to edit images, so they are excellent apps for editing photos with sliders.

Before using it filter, we must create an image of each layer in order to apply the Camera Raw Filter on one layer in one step. Make a merge layer by using CTRL + Alt + Shift + E using this method to result in a single layer placed over the layer that is made up of all layers below.

Right-click now on the newly-created layer, and then select “Convert to Smart objects”.

Visit filter > Adobe Camera Filter If you’re not seeing this filter, that could mean you need to install it using the Adobe Creative Cloud app.

The Basic tab In the Basic Tab, there are an increase in contrast, exposure black levels and shadows. It is possible to increase the exposure like I did (be mindful and be careful not to overdo it) In addition, increasing contrast will result in sharp and sharp, but be careful not to overdo it also. Shadows & Black levels make sure that we don’t erase information in darker areas when you increase the contrast or exposure.

In the HSL TAB It is possible to control the level of saturation in the colors of. The thing we will do is selecting the Saturation TAB Increase it for each shade you notice in the landscape. It will make the hues vibrant and pop.

Step 5 – – Final results

Below you will see my final images and results. We are focusing on each hue of the landscape, and created them to pop as you can see in the picture below. There is a lot you can do more using ACR. For instance, you could attempt to alter the hues of colors, or adjust the Luminance slider to adjust either up or down the intensity of every colour. The basic idea is that Camera Raw helps a lot with post-processing. And the most effective way to do is by simply moving the sliders.
