Hello! I was wondering how did you make your photos looked matte? It's such a pretty effect, and I've never seen anyone else do it too.
Hello dear anon-san and thank you for the compliment (ﾉ´ヮ`)ﾉ*: ･ﾟunfortunately I dont know what exactly you meant by matte but in photoshop I played around with the offset preset. It’s rather complicated though but I will try my best!
In photoshop go to image>adjustments>exposure. Then you will have this pop up which shows the exposure, offset and gamma correction tab.
Then just set the values to however you like according to your preference~! I usually use the offset and gamma correction only and set it to the values shown in picture (っ˘ω˘ς ).
Then I transferred the photo to my phone and edit it in pics art using the “drama” effect and I set it around 79 opacity, feel free to adjust it accordingly though <3 I also edit the final picture in instagram because the photo looks in phone than in laptop so I tried to match from what I see using “brightness, structure, warmth, highlights, shadows and sharpen” tools. I use this picture and upload it to tumblr :3
Here are the comparisons (o^▽^o)
Although it is lengthy and complicated, I hope it is useful to you and good luck for trying it ( ´ ▽ ` ).｡ｏ♡
