Photos in Focus – Free Photoshop Video Tutorials for Dramatic Shots

4.5/5 (2)

It’s quite obvious that photos are tremendously important, especially today, when huge HD images are contributing to a global web design trend. Surely most good web designers have a strong knowledge of Photoshop, but this doesn’t mean that he/she can work wonders with photos using the software.

“Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.”
― Ansel Adams

Processing photos in Photoshop can be considered a separate form of art. We are not kidding. On the contrary, we are ready to take our hats off to the designers who can make an amazing shot out of a stock photo with just a few mouse clicks.

But let’s put first things first. Why are photos so essential to your site design? They can really make or break it. Stock photography just makes the websites appear cheap, which is bad for the corporate image. So we won’t talk about stock photos here at all.

It’s a medically proven fact that images are perceived and processed by the human brain much faster than words. What’s more, they stay in a person’s memory for a longer time. Images are appealing and they capture users’ attention. When we don’t want to read the text we just look through the images and grasp the essence of an offer or an article. When the words become unclear, images are simply irreplaceable.

But what is even more significant – photos are able to stir emotions or create a certain atmosphere on a web page. With the power of photography you can manipulate people’s feelings. You can make your visitors happy, calm, indifferent, cheerful, romantic, angry or even scared. Photos are the triggers that start up some sort of mechanism in your mind. You begin to recollect the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved and so on.

As for black and white photos, it seems to us that the quotation of Ted Grant’s words is highly appropriate here.

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”

You may find hardly a single artist who will dare to argue this statement. Would you like your site visitors, when they look at the pictures you posted, to feel the same way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice? Then, we suggest that you look through the collection of free Photoshop video tutorials featured below. No matter the level of your Photoshop skills, you’ll learn how to make your photos convey more clearly the message that you have in mind. The photo editing tutorials for Photoshop below are simple, step-by-step and straight to the point. We are sure that, sooner or later, each and every designer faces the challenges listed below. The question is how he/she overcomes the difficulties encountered when processing photos, if there are any, of course.

You must agree that it’s impossible to know absolutely everything, so we continue learning all our life, and the more we know, the better we understand and appreciate how much more there is still to be learned.

We sincerely wish your designs to be even more inspiring and hope that the following simple Photoshop lessons will teach how to make your photos whisper in a soft voice, tell a story, shriek or scream loudly depending on their purpose.
