Photoshop Masterclass: Colors, Patterns, & Gradients

In this episode, Paul will show how to take a typical photo and use colors, patterns and gradients to transform it into something spectacular. Learn how to recolor photos using Adjustment layers and blend modes. Also learn how to do “color blocking” on photos to segment it into parts to create more drastic changes. With these segmented parts learn how to apply gradients and patterns in layers to build up a final, intricate design.
