Dreamy Rose Photo Editing Tutorial

Good evening dollies!

If you follow any of my social media, you'll know that I have an unhealthy obsession with all things pink and dusty rose. One reason I really love LARME magazine is its abundance of pink, and it fulfills my hunger for dreamy, soft images. Today, I'll be doing a tutorial on how to edit your photos via Adobe Photoshop to achieve high quality dreamy images that carry the feeling and aesthetic of LARME!

Disclaimer: I know that apps like Meitu and Beautycam can do these things much quicker, but they also tend to blur the entire image and lose a lot of detail. This tutorial aims to blur only the sections that you want. I also know that this may shatter your ideals of me living as a permanently filtered dream figure, so for that I do apologize. I never mentioned that I was perfect, and most of my accounts are very aesthetic-based... I do get breakouts, oily skin, unsightly flyaways, eyebags, you name it. SORRY!

___________________

Step 1: Open original image! Crop if necessary. The image I've chosen is one with very bright flash that highlights all imperfections. I thought this would be a good image as it really shows a drastic before/after. If you're using a natural-light image, you might not need to blur that much, so it depends on the image itself.




Step 2: Duplicate the layer of your image twice, so that you have 3 layers of the same image. Make the topmost layer invisible. On the second layer, apply Median by going to Filter > Noise > Median. Adjust the Median to a level that blurs the skin, but does not blur the lines. Hit apply.

Make the topmost layer visible again. Using the Eraser tool with 0 Hardness, erase the parts of your skin that you want to blur.




Step 3: Sometimes the Median tool can leave sharp transitions of colour. If you want to soften any areas, use the Lassoo tool with at least a 5 Feather, and select all the parts you want to soften. Apply Gaussian Blur by going to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and adjusting to the desired amount. The overall effect should be soft, smooth and flawless.




Step 4: For a LARME look, sometimes blush does not show up in flash photos. Create a new transparent layer and using a soft Brush, create two red sections where you want your blush to appear. On the Layers tab, find the dropdown that says Normal and change to Multiply. 




Step 5: Then change the Opacity filter to an appropriate amount.



Step 6: This is optional, but sometimes it's fun to play with eye colour. You can use the Select Tool to select your eyes. Hit CTRL to select more than one eye at once. Whilst selected, hit CTRL+C then CTRL+P to create a new layer of just the eyes. Go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation to change the colour. You can erase any unecessary parts using the Eraser at 0 Hardness.


Step 7: This is my favourite part! I find applying filters to be really fun as it can change the whole mood of the image. After flattening your entire image by right clicking any layer in the Layers tab and hitting Flatten Image, go to Image > Adjustments > Curves. Click "Options..." and change the Shadows to a grey/brown colour and the highlights to a very pale, baby pink. You can use any of the top 3 Algorithms, but for this one, I've used Enhance Per Channel Contrast. Hit OK.




Step 8: This will take you back to the default Curves window. Drag the line upwards to lighten the entire image. Hit OK.




Step 9: Kill your yellows! This is optional but I like to do this to emphasize the pink. Go to Image > Adjustments > Selective Colour and select Yellows in the dropdown. Then go to the Yellow slider and drag all the way to the left.

You're done! You can now have fun with your very pink, dreamy, floaty, dolly image!
Hope you had fun! We'd love to see your before and afters!

  16. I wonder when people write picture editing do they say uploading photos? There's no snapshot at all while one performs a video picture, none, none, none. There is something that has to process the capture into an file. You can make the camera perform a half way job and that's all you get in a JPEG, or you can take the video picture and transform the image into what you thought and heard, and what the camera really recorded, and it is unseen before you edit it.
