Two 'halves' colour correction
Hi,

If i want to colour correct, say, the sky, then do a completely different colour correction for the image subject (person or building), and then combine these two 'halves' of the image, how is this done? Is there a video tutorial anywhere?

Thank you,

DC

RE: Two 'halves' colour correction
This is what "selections" are for. The changes only apply to the selected pixels, so typically you do a selection on your sky (Fuzzyselect,Iscissors,Freeselect), apply a color correction for it, then invert the selection to select the rest, and apply another color correction.

Hi Supermandan1, welcome to the forums! ^_^

This video tutorial video is similar to what ofnuts described above (using quick mask to create the selection)

You can also try layer mode "Hue" painting

*Use layer mode "color" if the color doesn't change, you can turn the layer opacity(on layers window) down if effect is too strong.
