    Adjustment Layer In Photoshop

    Hello All,

    I have seen an image in a magazine that I would try to replicate. I think a layer has been put on top. The image is of a model in monochrome (I think) but looks to have a sort of bronze glow.

    Thank you,

    best wishes
    Graeme

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Must be some type of adjustment layers added to the monochrome image. Just my wild guess. You could probably link the image here for viewing purposes. I don't see any harm in doing that.

    This sort of effect, if we are talking about the same thing, was popular a couple of years ago and the best examples needed quite a bit more specialised editing (and special lighting during shooting) than Willie's suggestion, which is the straight forward easy to achieve method.

    If nobody else comes forward, I will see if I can find any reference to this process in my 'may be useful one day' files. But it isn't a technique which I personally used.

    Re: Adjustment Layer In Photoshop

    I have looked through my old how to do this files but can't find the piece about adding the bronze glow. It was several years ago and on another forum.

    I seem to remember something about adding selective local contrast and saturation as part of the suggestions.

    Another article also mentions converting to monochrome using the channel Mixer method, producing a slightly 'over bright' image then duplicating that layer with a Multiply blend mode and adjusting the opacity to suit.

    But I can't find the reference to the bronzing effect that you require. I suspect that may have been lost during one of my annual tidy ups!

    Possibly use a low opacity fill layer as Willy mentioned or other sepia toning method and experiment. Maybe a google for bronze toning on photos might turn up one of the articles.

    I definitely remember reading several posts about this subject; but like so much nowadays, I just can't remember where it was. :

    You can get a nice glow with a copper gradient . . .
