Adobe Photoshop

If you have a shot of trees that would look even better decorated with Autumn shades open it up in Photoshop and let a few tricks with layers bring Autumn to your door.

How to create an Autumn scene in Photoshop

Step 1: Duplicate your layer

Open your image in Photoshop then duplicate it (Layer>Duplicate Layer). By doing so you'll be able to erase parts of the image you don't want the Autumnal tones applied to and bring the original shot back through.

Step 2: Layer Style

Double click on your top layer to open the Layer Style window then select the Color Overlay option. This will turn your image into a block of colour but don't panic as this is easily fixed. Change the Blend Mode to 'Hue' and click on the coloured block to pick the shade you want your foliage to be. Once you're happy click OK.

Step 3: Erase some colour

Your trees will now be decorated with the colours of Autumn, however so will be other parts of the image. In ours the grass is now orange and we don't want this. To remove any unwanted colour select the Erase Tool and simply brush over the area to bring the original shade from the other layer back through. You could try leaving some of the trees green as well as the grass if you wanted too.

Once you've erased your image it's complete – simple as that.
