Colour in Adobe Photoshop Ep733 Adobe Photoshop for Beginners with English subtitles   Complain

hello and welcome to this video tutorial

Gareth here from tasty tubes comm now in

Photoshop there are many ways to use

color Photoshop offers a variety of

tools filters and effects which you can

harness to get the right outcome you

desire later in the course we will be

looking at some of the wonderful color

filters and color effects that can be

achieved in Photoshop but before we get

into that I first want to introduce you

to the color panels and demonstrate how

they work in this tutorial I'll be

discussing the basics of color

I will also be demonstrating some

important color tools how to use

transparency change your image into

grayscale and how to set the right color

format now along the way I'm going to be

referencing particular panels here on

the right if you have been following

this course from the start you will be

familiar with the way I have my panels

structured here in one of the early

videos on this course I demonstrated how

to customize panels and create your own

workspace in my current workspace I have

all my color panels up here on the top

for ease of access if you don't have

this you can either skip back to the

panel and workspace video and learn how

to create this panel setup or you can

activate the panels as and when I

mention them now along the way I will be

mentioning some useful shortcut keys

which you can find in the description

and in the shortcut key page in the

project PDF which you can also download

in the description so I'm going to begin

by talking about some of the color

panels in Photoshop we will be using in

this tutorial to make this really clear

I'm just going to click on each tab and

drag it out here so you can clearly see

them I recommend you do the same so here

we have two panels we have the swatches

panel and the color panel if you don't

see these panels you can come to window

and you can select them from the

drop-down menu okay so first off we have


swatches panel now this is a handy panel

where you can access some predefined

colors if you're nu de Photoshop your

swatches panel will come with a bunch of

predefined swatches just like mine here

now if you move your mouse cursor over

and into the swatches panel no matter

what - you have active at any time as

you move your cursor over the colored

squares you will notice your mouse

cursor change to what looks like an

eyedropper icon

this is photoshop asking you if you wish

to choose a color from the swatches

panel now if you hover your mouse long

enough over a particular square you will

see the name of the swatch appear if you

click on the swatch you will select the

color and in your menu you will notice

the color becomes selected in the

foreground square if you double click on

the swatch up or pop a small menu which

will reveal the name of the swatch

should you desire you can change the

name of the swatch but for now I'll keep

it the same and just click OK in

Photoshop you can build and save color

samples here in the swatches panel and

name them we will be getting into that

shortly on the top of the swatches panel

we have a color history here in CC 2014

every time we select a color sample it

will appear in this bar as we continue

to select colors they will move along

here we have 16 samples this gives us a

chance to recall a recent color choice

so the next panel we have is the color

panel this panel is really useful for

searching and refining color samples

over on the left hand side we have the

two squares that represent the

foreground and the background color the

same as on the bottom of the menu panel

here we can click either and set a new

color like so so currently we can search

through the color spectrum to select a

new color should you find a color you

are interested in you can come to the

top right of this panel and click the

menu button here you can choose from

various color sliders such as RGB and CM

why k these can help refine colors very

marginally if you wish to tweak a chosen

color like so so welcome back and click

the top right menu and select the hue

square to go back to the color spectrum

now when working with color and filter

shop the main point of focus will be the

foreground and background squares

located at the bottom of the menu panel

on the far left this is an indication of

what color you have selected at any

given time also we have the background

color selection which works with the

gradient tool so as demonstrated earlier

you can use the color panel to discover

new colors but that's not the only way

for example if you click on the

foreground color in the menu up will pop

the color picker menu now this menu will

present all the color information for

that particular color you currently have

selected here we have the RGB CMYK and

digital color reference to the left we

have the color spectrum which we can

explore and choose another color notice

next to the big color spectrum we have a

tall slim column representing the entire

color spectrum if we click and drag on

the holder we can drag up and down to

scroll through the spectrum to reveal

the colors in the Box to the left as we

click to select the color we will see

the color information update to the

right now should we find a color we like

it's from this menu where we can add the

sample to our swatches panel and create

a new swatch for example I'll click to

select a new color once satisfied I can

click this button here to the right add

two swatches upon click up we'll pop a

small color menu where I can choose a

name for the new swatch I'll call this

new swatch and click OK upon click the

new swatch will be added to my swatches

panel and I am back to the color picker

menu for now I'll click OK so now I have

my new swatch in my swatches panel


so should I wish to edit this color I

can come into the swatch panel and

select the new color swatch now in the

color panel I can click the top right

menu button to drop down the menu and

select one of the sliders on this

occasion I'll select the RGB slider and

here I can toggle the RGB values as I do

so notice the color changing in the

square to the left and in the menu panel

if I want to save this edited color I

can simply click on the color in the

menu to pull up the color picker menu

and again click the add to swatches

button name and save easy now in the

menu panel if I wish to set the

background color to a new color I will

first need to click the swap button to

just above it to the right by clicking

this button this will swap the

foreground and background color also you

can press the keyboard shortcut X by

pressing X on the keyboard this will

quickly swap the foreground and

background color and enable you to

select a color for each easy now should

for whatever reason you wish to set the

foreground and background color to

default black and white simply press D

on the keyboard D is the keyboard

shortcut to set the foreground and

background color to black and white

now you don't only have the option to

discover color from the color picker

menu you can also extract colors from

images you have opened in Photoshop to

demonstrate this I'm going to open a

document I've prepared especially for

this tutorial this can be found in the

introduction folder in the project

folder now you can download this project

folder for free the download link is in

the description with the project folder

open click introduction color and double

click the color document it will open in

Photoshop and you should have something

that looks like this so here I have this

document open now let's say I am liking

the color green here in the green

origami bird and I would like to capture

it we can do this easily by using the

drop a tool now you can either come to

the menu and select the eyedropper tool

or you can press the keyboard shortcut I

by pressing I this will activate the

eyedropper tool and you will see the

mouse cursor change like so now this is

quite a clever tool with this active you

can click on a color in the image and

select it for example I'll click on a

green section of the image and upon

click the green will appear in the menu

panel if I wish I can now click on the

color in the menu to pull up the color

information like so and if I like this


I can add to swatches but on this

occasion I'll click cancel

now with the eyedropper tool still

active this time instead of clicking

once I'll click and drag over the green

area now we have this nice color sample

appear as I move my mouse cursor around

we can see the color represented in this

widget around the mouse cursor this is

sure to help us identify the color first

without committing allowing us to

explore until we find a color we are

happy with

when you release mouse click the color

will be selected easy so currently in

the swatches panel we have one new

swatch saved now over time this may

build up and you will want to save them

so as not to lose them or you may even

wish to share them with others to save

your swatch is quite simple simply click

on the top right menu on the swatches

panel and choose save swatch from the

menu on this occasion I'm going to

navigate to the project folder and save

this to the project folder and call it

swatch sample and click Save upon save

you will now have a special file that

contains the swatch data for future

reference this file can also be shared

with others all they have to do is open

this file with Photoshop and they can

access your saved swatches so right now

we can see our saved swatch panel now if

I come to the top right of the swatches

panel and click this little icon here

this will reveal a menu from this menu

we can select the

various color libraries for example we

can come down and select a Pantone book

I'll select the solid coded Pantone book

upon click a message will appear asking

if I want to replace the color current

colors swatches with pan tones

I'll just click OK and upon click we

have a library of Pantone colors to

choose from now I'll just place my mouse

cursor over the bottom right of the

panel and click and drag out here so we

can see more samples just like earlier

if I hover my mouse cursor over a

particular color up or pop the Pantone

name convenient so this is good if you

are working on Pantone's foot print and

wish to browse Pantone colors now if you

want to go back to the saved swatches

panel we just had a minute ago all you

have to do is come to the top menu on

the right on the swatches panel click

and select replace swatches here I'm

simply going to navigate back to my

project folder and click on the saved

swatches file we just created upon click

we are now back to our saved swatches

panel we had earlier easy now in

Photoshop when working with color we

have the ability to use transparency in

Photoshop we are able to toggle a

transparency of layers which can alter

the color effects in the canvas area to

create a particular effect for example

in the layers panel we have a red bird

layer if I move into the layers panel

and select this layer I can press V to

activate the move tool and move this

layer around so currently this layer is

on the top so we'll be above everything

else in the canvas area as I move it

around now if I come to the top right of

the layers panel here I have the opacity

option now I can toggle the opacity by

moving my mouse over the word opacity

next to the value as you do this you

will notice the mouse cursor changed to

a hand with arrows pointing left and

right to toggle the opacity

we scroll left and right as I do so I

can change the value between zero and

100% causing the image to fade and blend

with the color of the layers below next

I can come to the layers panel and

choose another layer this time I'll

select the purple bird I'll come up to

the opacity value and toggle this like

so and with the move tool I can move

this over the red bird next I'll select

the green bird layer and toggle the

transparency and move it around on the

canvas area so here you can see you can

create interesting imagery using

transparency should you wish so that's a

brief overview of how you can work with

the swatches panel select colors and

save them in Photoshop and use

transparency now one of the most

important things to be aware of when

using color in Photoshop is to have the

correct color mode set one of the

important things to bear in mind is what

you're creating your work for if you're

creating artwork for digital and web you

will want to use RGB color and if you're

creating artwork for print you will need

to use CMYK colors the color mode option

can be accessed from the top menu by

coming to image mode and you will see

the mode options in the drop down menu

so here we can currently see the tick

next to RGB this is indicating that this

image is currently RGB now this will be

good for digital work but could pose

problematic if we want to use this image

for print we can easily change the color

mode here by choosing an option so for

example I'll click my image mode to CMYK

upon click you will get a message box

asking if you wish to flatten the image

this is because I currently have layers

in the document on this occasion I'm

going to click don't flatten as I don't

wish to lose my layers upon click you

may see the overall color become a

little D saturated if I press command Z

to undo repeatedly the toggle back and

forth from RGB to CMYK you may see the

effect this is because CMYK is not as

vibrant as

be now should you have a photo open you

wish to change to black and white

instantly we can change the image to

grayscale up in the image mode if we

select grayscale the image will change

to grayscale now remember if you change

your image to grayscale there is no

going back to RGB should you save it or

perform further tasks on the grayscale

image so be careful I'll just press undo

to go back to my RGB setting so that is

an introduction to color in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is an immensely powerful

program for editing color and applying

effects later in the course as we move

into the essential practice section we

will be learning some of the more

powerful tools to work with color and

create color adjustments in Photoshop in

the next video I'll be demonstrating

some handy tips which will help you work

easy and more comfortably in Photoshop

see you in the next
