Photoshop Downloads


The Photoshop download is my original master file with every layer used to create the image. The download does not replace personal tuition, but is an insight into how I create the my images and the Photoshop retouching taught on my photography workshops. Every layer fully annotated and functional, perfect to reverse engineer the image. Study the techniques used to create the final image, solving contrast, color, compositing and much more. The download does not use all my techniques, but a great majority of them.

‘Road to Glencoe’ Landscape ~ Photoshop Download

01. Every Layer Included

The “Photoshop tutorial downloads” give you the perfect opportunity to reverse engineer a real image. Turning on or off a layer, allows you to see the effect that layer makes on the image. Nothing at all is left out. See every single alteration, addition, mask, tonal change and color change – the lot! See how masks are used. Where adjustments are applied. If they are limited to a small area or are applied to the whole image. See if the mask is a detailed TK Actions mask or a more freely hand painted mask. The Photoshop knowledge this download contains is worth its weight in gold.

02. Every Layer Annotated

Every layer is annotated within the 60-character Photoshop limitation, explaining the layer’s purpose or where the image information comes from. This file is the best learning tutorial because it’s not a static, theoretical illustration; it’s the real image that you can alter and change in real time yourself. The power is NOT having to relate poor quality ‘text book illustrations’ to real life application. The file is the real-life application that you can alter and experiment with. Every layer was created because it is needed to make the Photograph, not to make tutorial download.

03. Color Coded Layers

Every layer is color coded to ‘Color Group’ every type of layer for your easier understanding. Looking at the color, you can easily see at a glance the dispersal of the layer types, quickly seeing the dispersal of layers containing image information and those that are image adjustment layers. Grey – final image. Orange – color changes. Red – tonal adjustment layers. Green – photographic information layers. Purple – groups and Yellow – ‘black’ layers. The secret layer that is not found described in Photoshop books to achieve beautiful mood, atmosphere and a real feeling of light.

04. Experiment

Being a real file, every adjustment layer setting is reflected in its ‘properties window’, every curve, level and color change can be seen or changed to understand what I did and how it changed the image. This allows you to experiment, seeing the result of those changes within the context of the whole image. Most Photoshop tutorials explain one function at a time, without the context of all the other layers that go into making an image. Provided you do not save your file but use ‘revert’ the file will return to its original state or set the file properties to read only on your computer.

05. Analyze the Histogram

The Photoshop histogram works in real time, reflecting how the image changes as the photo is created. Histograms are the essential guide to make sure all the highlights and shadows do not blow out or fill in, because they rely on data, not visual judgment of a monitor screen. The large volume of pixels reflecting the overall tone of the image. The histogram also shows the tonal gradation. Smooth histograms mean beautiful smooth tonal gradation. See how I create this smooth tonality and what layer controls it. Learning the Photoshop histogram is an essential Photoshop skill.

06. Photography Tuition

At the very bottom are the raw files converted into tiff format. Not everything I do can be learnt from one single image because each image has unique problems to solve, but every single Photoshop tutorial download file contains the complete evolution of that image from start to finish, with nothing edited out or ‘re-polished’ in order to create a tutorial. Every change and brush stroke are there to see, because I needed it to create the final image. 100% honesty! The file shows what you will learn with my private photography tuition, black and white tuition or Photoshop courses.
