Use Green Screen to Create Composites in Photoshop!


Video Transcript

hi there this is animation picks in perfect and today we can create a composite together using green screen now of course you can learn how to extract the subject out of a green background but here’s the thing I would not recommend using green screens especially when it comes to compositing and still photography video is fine because you have a lot of frames to deal with but when it comes to still photography and you capture your subject with a green screen usually what happens as the green color spills onto the subject especially around the edges the hair it gets difficult to remove however we will learn how to deal with this today in this tutorial obviously green screen has its own advantages it’s pretty quick so it’s gonna be fun so without any further ado let’s get started [Music] for this episode let’s show some love to our patreon David who submitted the photo for this tutorial you can follow his work over here and the model is Emmy she’s awesome David’s daughter and you can follow her over here so here we are back in Photoshop and if you’re wondering which background would be ideal for capturing subjects meant for compositing it should be 50% gray or any shade of grey that contrasts with the subject that’s it alright so here we are in the beautiful world of Photoshop and if you wanna go ahead and download any of the sample photos check the links in the description if you want to follow along alright first of all we open the background right if you don’t know how to open the backgrounds or any image just let me show you how to do that so we’ll find out our finder and inside of that finder let’s just drag it and drop it into Photoshop or you can go file open the regular old stuff now on top of it we will place the subject now there are two ways to place the subject number one very simple just go to your finder drag your subject and drop it over the canvas over the image and you’re good come hit enter it opens up as a smart object and we are happy to receive it let’s go ahead and delete this and let me show you the other way the other way is simply going to file and then place embedded both do the same thing they both place the subject embedded to the PSD as a smart object so let’s locate the subject and simply click on place and it does the exact same thing we have our subject here hit enter hope you enjoyed this tutorial so far I just wanted to stop by and let you know that this show is available to you for free by the support of our amazing patreon the support picks imperfect on patreon.com slash fix imperfect it makes it possible for us to create all these content for you for free so please do consider supporting picks imperfect on patreon.com also there are a lot of rewards and perks for supporting picks imperfect as you can see from the website but here’s the thing that allows us to do what we love and that is teaching you now it’s completely voluntary listen you watching the video means a lot to us you don’t need to do anything else but if you want to support us to do what we love please do consider it now the next step that is step number three is very important and that is matching the perspectives sometimes you look at a composite and we go hey the color is matching the light is all right and the shadows look amazing but there’s something which is just not looking right I can’t put a finger on it but something is wrong over there most of the time in those cases the perspective is wrong what I mean by that is for example you have the background taken from a low angle and you have the subject taken from a higher angle you cannot match the subject with that of the background you have to match the perspectives have a look at it so first off what we need to do is let’s hide the subject and then simply can draw lines we need to select the line tool if you cannot see it if you can just see the rectangle you can just click and hold and it will show you all the tools for the shapes just select the line tool and you’ll be good make sure you choose pixels because if you don’t want to create any part or a shape choose pixels weight 7 pixels is fine weight is actually the thickness of the line and then we can choose white or any other color just create a new layer on top of everything and we can name it background BG perspective VGP all right press D to reset the swatches and make sure the foreground color is white you can press the letter X to toggle between the foreground and the background so let’s press X and let’s create lines along the perspective so this is the road goes this way just drag it all the way let’s make one more line from here doesn’t have to be very accurate so we know it’s matching over there and that is called the vanishing point now press ctrl or command R to show up the rulers okay just click and drag from here and drag it to that point now we can draw a line through this line just like this and this ruler was just for guidance okay now we have a perspective we have an idea let’s draw one more line through it just like this and to hide the guides you can press ctrl or command semicolon okay now let’s create one for the subject let’s turn it off let’s turn on the subject let’s create one more layer and let’s create it on top of the subject and this is subject whoops and perspective P right now for this let’s we have to guess because we don’t have any lines over there we have to guess for this one you have to just zoom in and guess and let’s change the color for the subject let’s change the color to let’s say red so that we can just differentiate between the two so zoom in and just look at the creases and we have to guess by human instinct of how it would have been okay it could have been this way something like this I think it’s pretty okay look at the shadows and try to infer from it okay let’s do it on the other side I guess it would have been like this this looks pretty all right and then from there you can also drag in a ruler and draw a line through it just like this press ctrl or command semicolon to hide the guides you can also draw a line just like this and this one is for the subject now you can now turn on the background we have to match these two and to be able to do that simply select both the subject perspective and the subject and how did I do that this is selected hold the ctrl or command select the subject both of them are now selected then press ctrl or command T for the transformation tool now let’s align both of them together just like so okay now the perspectives of them are matching and it should look perfect when the green thing is removed now you can control the size and all the other aspects later just for now just make sure the perspectives are match and we can turn this off we can delete it doesn’t even matter but we can just turn it off for now now the next step that is step number four is removing the green background and here’s how to do it let’s just make sure the subject is visible and you can turn off the background not really needed at this moment and then simply go to select and then gala range now inside of color range you select this eyedropper tool right over there and click on an area which is green now if you’re seeing it this way it means the selection preview is grayscale for the beginning you can change it to none so that you can actually see the image with a green background and decrease the fuzziness all the way to zero okay now let’s move around the image and once you have clicked on this eyedropper tool and clicked on any of the greens then you need to choose the plus eyedropper tool and just start adding the greens you can also start with a plus eyedropper tool but what happens is if it already had selected some other colors it creates a problem so make sure you start with this one the regular eyedropper tool and then once you pick a green move to the plus and then let’s start adding different shades of green around the subject from different areas looks wait now while you are picking up the greens for the eyedropper tool and it’s just not selecting the right cutter just make sure that this is not point sample the sample size should be higher 5 by 5 or 11 by 11 so that it takes an average color of the surrounding areas okay now we can change the selection preview to grayscale and we can see which areas are selected which areas are not so white other areas which are selected black other areas which are not selected now you can go ahead and increase the fuzziness accordingly if you increase it too much parts of the subject will also be selected we don’t want that okay a good way to look at it is changing the selection preview to black matte or a white matte let’s change it to black matte and now you see the selection in color and everything else in black but even the subject selected right let’s go ahead and check inward this invert the selection and gives you a real time a preview now let’s play with the fuzziness now the hairs look okay if you go too much see the subject as being the selected we don’t want that want to find a place where the subject is nicely selected let’s change it to grayscale and see whether the subject is subject selection is okay let’s zoom out this is pretty okay 108 is not bad but I’ll go with let’s say 75 but the problem with 75 is if I go to black mask you can see the Greens overlap that’s okay we can take care of this now once you have done this hit okay now you have the subject selected because we checked the invert at the end now all we need to do we need to click on this button the create mask button now we have the subject on its own layer you can now turn it on and we are pretty much good to go of course we need to clean up the mask the next step that is step number five is refining the mask when we removed the green out of the box using color range or any other method there’s a tiny bit of green of remaining around the edge also the mask is just not perfect with the shadows and the folds of the green in the background we just have to take care of that let’s do it back in Photoshop as you can see the mask is just not perfect let’s zoom in and let’s go ahead and make the mask visible just the mask hold the alt or the option key and just simply click on the mask this makes just the mask visible now let’s zoom in and just select the regular brush B and then let’s make the brush a little bigger make sure the foreground color is black and just paint out these things just we don’t need it it’s the shadow and all the other things that we don’t want let’s zoom in we need to be a little careful over here let’s make the brush a little smaller and paint it there accidently and just paint out the areas the extras all right so here yeah it looks pretty good however around the edge there are a couple problems as you can see here a little bit of tea leaking is there because the background color went a little different because of the shadow here as well there are a couple of things that we need to take care of and there’s a special way to do it and it is by simply changing the blend mode of the brush to overlay if you just go ahead and change the blend mode to overlay and you have black selected it just won’t paint on the white areas have a look even if I try to paint it just won’t paint on this area it just won’t let’s go back okay so if I try to remove this over here let’s go ahead and decrease the flow to around 20% and let’s just try to remove that see it’s just not painting on that area and just be slow gradual and patient when dealing with stuff like this see there’s it’s kind of frying up around the edge so in that case you need to paint over it again so let’s continue doing all of these areas using overlay now we have done our best over here just make the subject visible and then remove the other extra areas that we can see so hold the alt or option again and click on the mask to look at a subject now let’s zoom out first of all let’s remove all of this change the blend mode blend mode the head to normal and then just simply paint with black over here increase the flow 200 and just remove this first and all of the extra areas and then we will deal with the edges I think most of it is good now let’s zoom in and just take care of the edges from top to bottom let’s change the blend mode to overlay and let’s start painting over here this is okay we’re gonna take care of the greens around the edge don’t worry about it just have a look at the edge the edge is very sharp over here so just try to erase as much as we can okay great it’s pretty green but it’s fine this one’s pretty green and we will try to remove the shadow from here let’s see if we can do that yeah it’s kind of pretty blending in and it’s not looking bad here as well there’s a lot of shadow that needs to be gone anything else everything L looks else looks okay here it’s pretty good let’s zoom out now our subject is very nicely extracted as you can see the perspectives are matching and it’s looking great now if you want to adjust the size there’s a way to do it moving to step number six and step number six is adjusting the size and position there’s a way to do it properly and there’s a reason why we made the perspective let’s move into Photoshop and check it out time for us to turn on the subject perspective you can also turn on the background perspective for reference now select the subject perspective and the subject so hold the ctrl or command select the other one both of them are now selected then press ctrl or command T place the anchor point on the vanishing point so hold the alt or option click here to place the anchor point there you could have also dragged it and dropped it over there now zoom out and hold the shift and option and then you make it big what happens is this way the perspective always stays aligned have a look even if we make it big it stays aligned with the background see so this is fine this is pretty okay hit Enter or return you can do a little bit of cheating you can move a little bit to the left or right it’s okay a little bit is fine select the subject let’s move the subject a little bit to the left press ctrl or command D and you can actually move her to the left with the arrow keys just a little bit a touch once you’re ready hit the Enter or return and then just simply turn off the subject and the background perspectives done step number seven is adjusting the greens and removing them from the edges let’s zoom in and do that okay so for that we need to create a hue/saturation adjustment layer click on the adjustment layer icon and then choose hue/saturation now with the help of the hand tool that you see right over there click on that hand tool and then take a sample of the greens it shows you yellows let’s try again so seems like the greens are closer to yellows doesn’t matter right now all we need to do we need to take the hue and the saturation all the way to the right the thing is apart from the subject it’s also affecting the background we don’t want that to happen if you want to limit it and chest to the subject so we will click on this button this is create clipping mask button it creates a clipping mask limiting it just to the subject let’s make the properties a little wider so that they can select the colors better now this is the range of colors that we have targeted let’s make the range narrower okay and then from the middle let’s move it so that most of the green is selected as you can see over here now let’s expand it we don’t want our subjects face to be selected let’s make it narrower this is fine now let’s adjust the side sliders this makes the transition of the area which is targeted and the area which is not targeted softer smoother let’s do it to the right and side as well let’s make sure most of it is selected okay even pretty much good now bring back the saturation and hue to zero let’s bring them back to zero and now let’s adjust them zoom in and let’s see which hue or saturation looks good over there with the background and that’s the whole point you need to create the composite with the background there because you want to know how the subject would react to the background sometimes the greens would just work and you don’t have to do a thing because the background might be full greenery but in this case we need to work it out okay now once you have brought them back to zero you might see how did this become green here’s the thing when you select the colors and then you change back to master you will see that the second green is created that’s the regular green and greens are the ones that we selected so if you close this and if you open the properties again masters you see no selection you have go ahead and select back the Greenes okay anyway once we select the range of colors that we need to target just play with the hue see what works for this you can also just drag it from there wow that actually solves it let’s take it a little bit to the left okay let’s have a look at the before and after so this is the before this is the after looks so much more better isn’t it so let’s zoom out and have a look at the overall image so this is the before with all the greens and this is the after solves most of it not all of it but most of it have a look again before after now we need to play with a saturation more saturation or less saturation just a little less saturation would be fine this is okay alright we are done solving here but there’s a little bit of green here that needs to be solved to take care of excess greens we need to create one more hue/saturation adjustment layer click on the adjustment layer icon and then choose hue/saturation again click on the clipping mask button and this time we know we actually let’s make it a little less wider we know that this should have been gray right so just simply decrease the saturation to -100 or just a little bit of it okay that’s good now select the mask press ctrl or command I now simply take the brush make sure the foreground color is white press X and then just simply paint on those areas with white make sure you change the blend mode back to normal don’t forget to do that and just paint to take care of the greens you can increase saturation a bit that’s why I recommend it not to use green backgrounds when capturing stuff like this this is okay all right now you know what when I look back at it I might have to do something with the mosque so let’s go back to the mosque and let’s take the brush and paint white in these areas let’s see oh so it’s all green let’s get it back is it really necessary something about this is just not looking right let’s go ahead and remove all of this area we just don’t need this area change the blend mode back to overlay with the mosque selected and then let’s paint black over here or let’s change it normal because it’s very heavily selected just erase this a little softer edge is fine doesn’t matter much you can change it back to overlay and then just paint along the edge let me get make it a little more rough yeah looks pretty good and let’s do it over here as well let’s play with the normal because it’s just not removable okay let’s get it back to overlay and then just paint it with black it’s pretty good and great zoom out and have a look it’s looks pretty nice also we might have to do something around the legs if you have a look it just looks too dark in green you might have to create one more hue/saturation adjustment layer and take down the saturation right just like this select the mask press ctrl or command I click on the clipping mask button and then take the brush foreground color white and just paint over here it’s too green change the blend mode to normal don’t forget to do that and I’m forgetting again again see how the green spills okay zoom out we are in good shape the next step is also one of the most important steps of a composite and that is mashing the subject with the background I actually have a series on that so check out the series right here also we recently did a tutorial on that a very in-depth tutorial you can also check that out links are in the description all right so to do that first of all we need to create a luminosity mask now what is a luminosity mask it shows you everything but the color no colors shows you the lights and the luminosity of the image so create a solid color adjustment layer select any color with saturation zero hit OK and change the blend mode to color it shows you just the brightness okay now let’s go ahead and create a curves adjustment layer on top of this hue/saturation click on the adjustment layer icon and then choose curves now if you do anything it affects both the subject and the background so we need to click on this button called create clipping mask button now let’s play with it let’s delete the point let’s zoom in just a little bit now with the help of the hand – we need to make this area a little darker so click and drag it down I guess that is fine but when we zoom out the darks are too dark so we need to just brighten the darks a little bit just a tad bit this is okay maybe let’s make her a little more darker this looks alright so let’s have a look at the before and after so this is the before not matching this is the after so we have pretty much mastered so now we don’t need it let’s go ahead and delete this layer now as you can see the saturation is out of place so first we need to match the saturation to check the saturation you can simply create a selective color adjustment layer with a red selected just decrease the blacks just make sure absolute is checked and do it with all the colors do it with yellow-green science blues and magenta but when it comes to these three whites just increase the blacks neutrals and blacks great now all you see is saturation in black and white which means that the brighter the area the more close to white and area is the more saturated the area is the darker the area the less saturated the area is alright so just look at the face because her dress is already great doesn’t matter so we need to create a hue/saturation adjustment layer on top of the curves click on the create mask button create clipping mask button and then adjust the saturation – 20 is good now let’s turn this off and it looks pretty good maybe we need to go -12 turn this on you know what the hair saturation was ok but the face saturation needs to go away so this hair is okay but only the face needs to be a little adjusted 14 is good select the mask press ctrl or command I now just take the brush make sure the foreground color is white and paint on the face here as well here and it’s pretty much good let’s zoom out and we need to just delete the selective color we don’t need it anymore I will look here’s the before the face was too saturated and here is the after now let’s match the colors and to be able to see only the colors no highlights mid-tones or shadows only the colors we need to do this we need to create a solid color adjustment layer select mid gray 50% gray hue and the saturation is 0 and brightness 50 it doesn’t matter what hue you choose once the saturation is zero anyway so just make sure the hue saturation is zero and the brightness is 50 especially saturation zero brightness 50 it okay okay alright hit OK and then change the blend mode to luminosity now you see only the color to amplify it you can create a curves adjustment layer on top of it and just let’s make an s-curve just to see it more clearly okay now on top of the hue/saturation and we’re gonna turn this off later the color fill and the curves on top this is just a check you’re gonna create a curves adjustment layer okay click on this button again and then let’s go to the red Channel if you think you want to decrease the amount of red on this area it’s it’s just standing out select the hand to click and drag it down see what helps no not really what if we drag it up a little bit just a tad bit this is okay let’s go to the green Channel let’s see what we can do here just a bit the dress selected just drag it down is it helping yes it is a little bit if I increase it is it hoping not really so we’re gonna decrease it just a touch and maybe with the face we can see what else increasing it just a little bit helps and then let’s go to blues work on the face decreasing it increasing it maybe decreasing it helps a little alright you’re pretty much done with this let’s turn this off didn’t do much of an impact but here’s the before here’s the after does help us match that with that of the background before after maybe I’ll just decrease the opacity a bit let’s keep it sixty-five ish that’s great then now you know what we are done matching the subject with that of the background but it’s still not matching you know why because we have not added the shadows so step number nine is simply adding the shadows now we need to add the shadows under the subject let’s scroll down and create a layer above the background layer just a simple layer and you can name this shadow if you want to just like so and then zoom in simply just take the brush make sure the flow is somewhere around maybe four or five percent four percent is great and the soft round brush at the general brush soft round brush and zoom in foreground colour should be black black selected you can also press a D to set it to default and then just start painting the shadows like this just zoom in and start painting it maybe I’ll go with two percent over here you can also try changing the blend mode to multiply but that will be seen later you can also refer the original shadow of the subject to paint at the shadows so you can hold the shift key click on the mask button to turn it off look how the shadow was hold the shift key again click on the mask button now let’s go ahead and go to the shadow there and just paint the shadows just make it soft because it’s an overcast sky in this background it seems so and hold the shift key click on it again see how the shadow was over here it’s just a soft shadow let’s zoom out just a little bit and maybe I’ll just increase the flow it’s too much all right so we have made it we need to erase a little bit over here so hold the e key that will take you to the eraser now strange brush is selected we need to select the soft round brush and erase it let’s go back here is too much hold the e key again let’s make the razor a little bigger this looks pretty good release the e key it will get you back to the brush so if you just press the e key it will take you to the eraser to press the B key take you to the brush too but if you’re working on a brush hold the e key takes you to the eraser tool and then you release the e key takes back to the brush tool so that’s a quick tip over them quick tips for you don’t worry about that area we’re gonna take care of that okay that looks pretty good you know what I’ll just decrease the opacity just like so and maybe create one more layer for the shadow shadow too and start painting nearby okay that looks pretty good and we’re gonna merge both of these select layer one hold the controller command select the shadow press ctrl or command E okay and you can just name this shadow that was for our convenience like shadows are always just not blank they have a tenth of some other color so let’s go ahead and create a solid color adjustment layer and then choose any colors choose red and hold the alt or option and clip them to just the shadow hold the older option click on the line between these two that way it’s only limited to this area now its lips range I know so I need to double click here and pick the color from the ground so let’s pick something like this color I know it looks strange but you need to wait for it this color is fine you can also increase the saturation a little bit and then hit OK and change the blend mode of the shadow to multiply you can also do this after you change that to multiply and then you work with it here we decrease the saturation maybe go to brightness and decrease it a little bit maybe go to hue and change the hue a little bit so you can work it out okay looks great the shadow is great but something in the ground is just not looking right you know what this area is just not looking might hold the shift key click on a mask to see what it was oh there was a fold over there so we need to place something over there what if I place a leaf so zoom in and just move to the background and that’s what the next step is adjusting the ground making sure that everything looks right so step number 10 is getting the ground right so let’s make a selection of the leaf with the lasso tool is fine it’s just make a selection just really matter how accurate this is our rough selection is okay you know nobody’s gonna give you an award for this press control or command J now we have the left leaf on his own layer and take it above the subject so above all the adjustments right there right here now with the help of the move – let’s move it over here so zoom out let’s place it right there looks pretty cool there okay now we need to make it darker as well of course we need to match it for that so create a curves adjustment layer click on the create clipping mask button and then just darken it accordingly just like so again as you can see it’s very saturated so we’re gonna create a hue/saturation adjustment layer create clipping mask button just decrease the saturation to match that with the surroundings and maybe you want to change the hue a little bit okay we got it right now we need to just erase a couple areas so select this so this is the leave you can just name it leaf you have to all right so let’s adjust the mic it’s coming in the way a little alright so click on the mask button and take the brush and just paint some areas with black alright the flow is very low this is fine now just under the leaf II might have to create some shadows for it to look realistic so let’s create one layer over here and you can name it shadow of the leaf I’m gonna name it s L take the brush foreground color black flow a little low somewhere around 6 is fine just paint a little when you’re good you know a little bit here and there it’s fine alrighty we got the shadows okay maybe we’ll just go ahead and add a curves adjustment layer and maybe let’s add something to the dress let’s try adding a little red does that help maybe it does a little bit so click on the create clipping mask button select the mask press ctrl or command on then with the brush selected foreground color white just on her dress increase the flow hundred hundred you don’t need to be super accurate here just simply paint red is not helping let’s go to blues and let’s decrease the Blues probably yes now dad is helping zoom out see here’s the before here’s the after just a little bit of Blues decreased that is helping us a lot okay great now we have adjusted most of it now let’s blur the background so step number eleven is simply adding a shallow depth-of-field or blurring the background so let’s make a copy of the background press ctrl or command Rae and then convert it into a smart object go to filter convert for Smart Filters so that we can change the values of the blur later hit OK and then filter blur gallery and then tilt shift alright now inside of tilt shift you’re gonna place this point right over where she’s standing because you want that area to be in focus yeah accidentally rotated it just move it there alright there we go let’s move it a little bit to the bottom just like so this is cool now as this moves further it just blurs it so this is OK now let’s add a blur of 25 this would be great for this example 25 is kind of too much let’s go for 20 ish this is OK now let’s create a point over here to maintain this side of the perspective and then just rotate it you can hold the shift key to rotate by 15 degrees at a time and then let’s move this point a little outside and then we’re gonna just take this just like this and we’re gonna do the same over here as well you’re gonna create a point just over there still adjusting that one okay let’s hold the shift key while we rotate it and we’re gonna stop just right there at 90 degrees and let’s move it a little to the right and do the same with this it’s extended so this is where the blur is zero and this dotted line is where the blur is 20 pixels or wherever you choose so it’s gradual it goes from zero slowly and gradually to 20 it okay step number 12 is softening the edges as you can see if you zoom in have a look at this the edges are very sharp it’s a shallow depth-of-field image right the edges need to be a little soft it’s very very sharp so you’re gonna come back to the mask of the subject and I’m gonna teach you a trick you can choose the smudge tool okay and select a brush called a soft round brush just make the brush a little smaller and with the mask selected just smudge it in just smudge it in this is very helpful if you have any fringes in the image also it softens the edges see how nicely it’s working now you need to be a little careful here as the light is coming from the background it doesn’t really matter much how this area looks this is okay there’s a touch of green over there you know so we can actually erase that area select the mask take the brush and just simply paint that area in black we don’t want that extra thing over there all right great now let’s get back to this much just push it in like this you don’t have to do for every place just for the places where the edges are really really hard like this area that area maybe this area a little bit this is fine that area is good this area is good as well maybe a little bit over here all of that area is fine I can also take the brush and change the blend mode to overlay and paint black in a couple areas just to remove all those extra greens here and there all right we are in good shape now at the end you always do this is applying global effects to both the subject and the background to make them one so for this one let’s do something different we often add color look-up tables curves and we can do that but after that let’s do something different as well so at the top you can just add say Li let’s add a curves first and write in the bride’s and the darks we adding a little contrast here to both the subject and the background which is pretty cool and let’s add a color lookup table my favorite for these cases is obviously crisp warm so color lookup so we got to choose crisp warm and decrease the opacity because it’s always too much ticket all right and then at the end let’s go ahead and create a stamp visible M press ctrl alt shift e command option shift + E this creates a merged layer of everything you see on the canvas right now so go to file convert for Smart Filters and convert this into a smart object now go to filter convert for Smart Filters hit OK this converts this into a smart object again go to filter Camera Raw filter and let’s do something in Camera Raw let’s increase the temperature just a little bit maybe decrease the shadows or increase the shadows that’s totally upon you that suggested this way increase the contrast a little bit and decrease the exposure probably a little bit maybe increase the highlights and let’s decrease the clarity and give it a soft effect trying freezing the da’s now let’s go to the don’t curve and then we will just highlight it and then just add a faded effect increase the shadows and take this one down just to add a faded effect right over there now you can also sharpen it but it’s not required over here hue saturation lightness split toning really helps so what do you want the shadow to be colored with red is fine let’s simply increase the saturation you can all play with different colors over here split toning really helps matching the subject for the background and what do you want the highlights to be let’s increase the saturation of the highlights that blue selected and we can try in different colors of see which one works with our image yellow works the best so now let’s increase it just a tad bit this one just a little bit now let’s go to lens correction stuff and let’s increase vignetting let’s just take it to the left it really helps a little bit okay now this is fine now let’s go to effects let’s add a little bit of grain to it grains make the image a little beautiful let’s zoom in see look at the grains they look amazing alright now post crop vignetting this one would really help your image this is okay let’s adjust the midpoint we added too much on purpose to see where it’s leading to and then once you’ve done all of that you can reduce the values alright this looks fine it’s in just a midpoint okay that looks okay maybe you’ll play with the amount all right hit okay once you’re ready just look how far we have come have a look here was the background and then we had the subject with the green screen we removed it did a ton of adjustments we blurred it and thin we added the shadow for the color then we adjusted the subject and tried to match it with that of the background removing the green add a hue/saturation and curves just let’s turn all of them on and one by one we did it shadow of the leaf as well we added a leaf and we adjusted the leaf and these are all the checkers colorful and curves doesn’t matter much and don’t forget the perspectives and then a little bit of curse a little bit of color look up and at the end the Camera Raw to bring it all together so I played with shadow spent a little more time with the image and here is the result so this is the before with the green screen and the background and this is the after that’s how to create a composite the whole process with green screen again see how the problems we faced with green screen however it was easier and faster to remove most of the greens in one go if done properly if the background had been lit separately and it had no shadows no folds would have been so much more easier and would have taken a fraction of this time so that’s how to create a composite using green screen and all the processes that we discussed are just the same just a quick little recap just a quick little summary first we open the background dropped in the subject matched the perspective this is very important then we remove the green ease and color range then we added a lot of adjustment layers to take care of the greens and match the subject with that of the background adjust at the ground we added that leaf we will do anything possible to make the subject looked like she was in that background we added the shadows and at the end to make it all one we added some global effects like the camera the curves and the color lookup and that’s all for this video I hope this video helped you and if it did make sure to give us a like and also don’t forget to subscribe and not just
