Color Correction Photos

In this quick Photoshop tutorial I’ll teach you how to make right color correction on your photos.

In this tutorial I will be using this stock photo of people and snake. Firstly, you should find a nice stock photo to work with. As I mentioned above, I used a nice photo people and snake. Ok open this file and correct the image levels with Image > Adjustments > Levels:

Now get out the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush (Opacity: 50%, size of 45 pixels) and make a little clean work with this layer. Now we have a picture like this:

To finish off the color correction apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur:
