* Hi! I'm sure you should have gotten this question more times but how do you neutralize the ugly yellow colour in your DD gifsets without losing quality? Because I think you are one of the few people on tumblr with that superpower haha.
Ahahah, magic 🌼
Kidding! There’s actually a few ways to do that, I usually use one or the other, or a combination of all, depending on the scene and what I actually need!
Colour balance is one way to go. You can counteract the yellow of the gif, by upping the blue and the cyan (which decreases the yellows and the reds).
Photo filter is another way to go! Putting a cyan or blue filter (the opacity depends on the scene, by I try to keep it under 10% cause more than that it’s usually noticeable, and you can always put more than one layer, or use PF and then CB, build it up gradually.)
You can also mess with an entire colour with selective colour in “absolute” rather than relative. If you do this I advice you don’t go overboard with the adjustments cause the difference with relative is that moving the arrows even a tiny bit while on absolute makes a huge difference. so if you have a problem with yellow, you can go to selective colour -> yellow, and then decrease the yellow and up the cyan a little bit (or the red, depends on the scene).
But tbh my most used tool on that regard (and in general) is curves! More precisely the eyedrop tool in curves
Basically you click on it and what this does is that it turns whatever you click on the gif with it into the whitest point of your gif. This is especially useful with dark scenes cause it’s gonna brighten them up perfectly without bringing out pixels at all. But the best thing this thing does is that it inverts the tone of a scene. So if you click on a yellow-ish colour (I suggest you click on the fairest colour you can find on the scene cause as I said it’s gonna turn them into white and brighten everything else accordingly) it’s gonna turn the tone of the gif into blue-ish!
It’s gonna make sense once you practiced with it for a little bit cause it takes a few tries to get the hang of it (you’re gonna have to click on stuff a few times and go back a few times before you’re happy with the result) but it’s totally worth it, I promise! It makes you go from here:
Let me know how it goes :D
