Hi guys

I am pretty new to Photoshop editing and I have a photo which would look great with a tobacco grad added to it.

Anyone know how I can do this in Photoshop?

Curves adjustment layer blend mode color. In the curves adjustment click load and you will find PS preset curves there are lots of filters in there. Add a gradient to your adjustment mask for the grad bit.

Feeling a bit retro and want that 70's look?

I can think of a few ways. In RAW images you can play with the white balance and also adjust the colour cast. Or you could use a layer and place a colour in that and play with blending.

You can download all types of grads for photoshop and use them in 'actions' try google for this as I can't remember where I got my CS2 ones.

But then I recently bought Cokin P filters!

Make a new layer above the image.

Select a tobacco foreground colour from the colour picker.

Click the gradient tool and choose the gradient from the menu which shows 'foreground colour to transparent' and then run a gradient across the layer. ( tip: if you overdo the gradient too far into the bottom part of the image, you can move the layer up until it is correct position )

Set the layer blend mode to overlay in the pull-down menu - top left in Layer palette. ( Try some of the other modes - Soft light can give similar results as Overlay )

Use levels to alter the transition from colour to transparent ie. gradual or sharp.

Use Image - Adjust - Hue & Saturation to fine tune the colour ( Hue ).

Save with layer to allow further adjustments / alterations if required.
