How to Take Your Photos from BORING to AMAZING in Photoshop in 10 Minutes (VIDEO)

While we're not, generally, fans of "quick fixes" on images in Photoshop – why not get it right when you shoot it? – there's no shame in using Adobe's landmark image editor to make a boring photo look better. And in the below video from Photoshop maestro Serge Ramelli, he shows you how to do just that.

The best part of this Photoshop tutorial? You'll learn how to make a fairly sophisticated image edit using Lightroom and Photoshop in just ten minutes.

"In this tutorial, I will show you one of my favorite photos from Paris," Ramelli says. "We are going to retouch it in Lightroom very briefly and take it into Photoshop CC 2019. We are then going to use the crop tool and the new content aware tool to extend our sky. Then I will use the Color Range Select to select the sky and make a mask to change it with a more dramatic blue hour. Then we use the curve tool to make a match in terms of exposure and to add some warmth. Playing with opacity and the mask to make it blend well. Last but not least, we are going to redevelop the photo Camera Raw to guide the eye even better where to look."

That sounds like a lot of information but Ramelli walks you through all the edits in his typical clear and concise manner. If you want to follow along with Ramelli's edits you can download his Paris Carousel Sunset image here.
