Colorful Cowboy


This was a neat exercise we did where we learned about using the layer blend modes and the dust and scratches filter. We started with a some what rough old photo of this cowboy. We applied a dust and scratches filter to smooth out all the impurities, but kept the threshold low enough to where we could maintain most of the picture’s detail. After this, we added a new layer and set its blending mode to “overlay” we then colored on this layer over the photo to get the effect shown. Because the layer was on overlay, you could still see the detail of the photo underneath!
