For this week’s image I have tried to experiment with filters and textures using LR plug-ins. I wanted to try to create a different effect than I could get in Lightroom and there was a free version of Perfect Effects 9 to try, so I thought I’d give it a go and see how I got on with it.
From the original image with the Lightroom adjustments, I chose edit in Perfect Effects 9 as a plug-in and…
- Added a HDR glow layer and used the adjustment brush to remove the filter from an area on the swans neck the glow effect had made it too blurry.
- Using the textures, added a warm concrete subtle filter to the image.
- When I saved it I had a trouble finding the image again, I must be doing something wrong here as I had thought it would take me back to LR and my new image.
- Back in LR when I had found the image and imported it back, I reduced the saturation of the yellow and orange and increased the clarity.
