How do you make the colors pop in the graphics, like make the greens or blues or reds or make have a tint of orange throughout or something? Or make it *glow* so everybody looks like they have halos.

I keep seeing it in graphics and I just want to know how you and other lovely people make everything so PRETTY.

It’s a combination of things, really! First off I add a few Curves layers and play with those, just to get the contrast right and have the colours “pop”/be a little more intense. With colouring, sometimes I’ll just add a Colour Balance layer and play with that; if I want more control over the different colours then I’ll use Selective Colouring. 

The biggest thing, though – probably my “trademark”, lol – is that I always add a Diffuse Glow and set that to soft light, and then I’ll merge the screencap and throw a Gaussian Blur on it, and set that to soft light as well. That’s probably what gives my graphics that extra “oomph” in terms of colouring and gives everything that lovely ~glow effect.

I hope that helps! ;)

I was about to recommend looking at the creation *museum. Since I have my degree in museums I can assure you that's NOT a museum and people keep suggesting I try to get a job there. It's all models. Not a single real bone.

HAH. That is hilarious. What a ripoff. Well. I’m not expecting much but man. That’s so funny! 😂

THAT MAN ON THAT COVER. HE BETTER HAVE A NAME AND WEBSITE AND TWITTER. AND YESSSS FOR POC PEOPLE BEING ON COVERS. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CHARACTER *IS* POC AND THE BOOK *IS* ABOUT THEM AND THE WORLD IS A TINY BIT MORE RIGHT THAN USUAL TODAY.

Sobbing because I can’t actually find his or the girl’s name anywhere. Seriously, if ANYONE knows, please stop by my ask. It would be lovely to know who these models are, especially the guy because wow he is beautiful and I want to follow his twitter /winkwink.

But anyway.

YES I’M SO HAPPY THAT THEY DIDN’T WHITEWASH THE COVER. APPARENTLY THE PUBLISHERS AND THE WRITER WERE VERY DETERMINED TO HAVE HIM POC ON THE COVER, WHICH IS LOVELY BECAUSE A LOT OF THE TIME THEY DON’T EVEN BOTHER.

Just, seriously, ASDFGHJKL SO. HAPPY. WITH. THE. COVER!!!

Common Law. Please tell me they are a couple. Or at least as bromancey as Psych.

They’re police partners taking couples therapy. Who argue like a married couple. They’re like Shawn and Gus in that episode where they broke up only they don’t have Lassie and Juliet to partner up with so they are stuck with each other. And did I mention that they’re in couples therapy?

daughteroctober replied to your post: I wish Timeline had a fandom the way The Avengers…

I haven’t watched Timeline in forever. I don’t remember much. :(

Well, there’s these archelogists. And they come across glasses in a sealed tomb that are as old as the hills and are like WHAT WHAT. Anyway, they go back in time. Andre Sexy-Pants Marek meets Lady Badass Claire and romance ensues. Meanwhile, Chris Paul-Walker Johnston and Kate Whoops-All-The-Asses Ericson try to find the others in their group and go back to the future before the time thingy runs out. Because, of course, the time machine blew up and they must race against time and all the jazz. Anyway, Claire and Marek make out, Billy Connolley continues to have a fantastic accent, Chris is orange, and Kate kills a guard with a fucking arrow (bow not included). And everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.

I love your 'some poor person was biking' theory. I just wonder why they didn't show August getting better.

I KNOW! They probably didn’t for a reason tho. Will be a part of season two probably.

But yeah, someone was probably biking when the spell broke and totally face planted. And while everyone else was all, “YAY! WE HAVE FOUND EACH OTHER! LET’S HAVE A HUG PARTY!” there would be that poor bastard, withering in pain on the road while some loser’s are making out. “Um, excuse me? Can you call an ambulance of something? I think I broke my face.”

HEADCANON.
