Enhance your photos from the moment they are taken right through to when they are printed

Photo-editing is at the heart of Photoshop and the cover feature in issue 82 celebrates this fact with a round-up of the best tips for photographers. It starts from taking the actual shot, through to organising images and then performing edits to tackle common problems.
Here’s a tip for creating richer landscapes using the Hue/Saturation command

Apply this adjustment non-destructively from Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation. Change the target colour from Master to the one relating to an area in the image, for example yellow for a sunset. With the colour chosen, boost the Saturation until it appears more vibrant. If you’re using version CS4 or later, use the hand with arrow symbol to click and drag on a colour to quickly increase its saturation.
