How to color tone your images using gradient maps in Photoshop
Trying to get the perfect and most creative color toning for your image seems like a daunting, and most of the times, frustrating experience. Dealing with Curves, channel operations and other complex tools is for the pros only. Fortunately, Photoshop has always an ace up its sleeve. We talked before about the Color Lookup Tables, where you could apply different color toning effects to your images with just one-click.
But what if we want just a little more control? Sometimes you don’t neither want Photoshop doing all the job nor having you to deal with all the work. Using the Gradient Map adjustment layer is the answer to this problem.
Aaron Nace from Phlearn will teach you how to apply creative color toning to your images that you can easily customize in Photoshop
