🍁 How I edit “The Adventures of Aurora” 🍁
All righty! I think this is will be relatively simple, but if you don’t understand something feel free to send me a message! You will need Photoshop to follow this! Let’s begin, shall we?
2. Topaz Clean
and abuse Topaz Clean, it is one of my favorite things in Photoshop. You can download Topaz Clean here. I use it with the following settings:
I have two sets of curves I use, the one I use for all my screenshots of Aurora:
And the one I use on top of that first set if the picture isn’t bright enough for my liking:
If the picture still doesn’t quite look like I want it to look like, I go to Image>Adjustements>Brigthness/Contrast and adjust those two until I like what I see!
4. Blur & Layer Mask’s
Essentially, what you want to do is:
- Duplicate your layer;
- On the duplicate go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur> and set it to something in between 1 and 2 pixels. 1.5 is a solid middle but sometimes I do 2 as well! Just adjust it to your liking;
- On the bottom right corner next to fx there is this tiny square, click on that to add a layer mask;
- Then, using the brush tool, you will “delete the blur” on the things/sims that you don’t want to be “blurred out”.
Again, please check the tutorial I linked above, it has pictures which makes it is much easier to follow if you’re new to layer masks and/or how they work.
When all of this is done, I select the crop tool and insert the following ratio: 1366 x 700. And that’s it! Hope this helped 😊💓
