Deke's Techniques 540: Rendering a Person in Chrome in Photoshop

Greetings from Wakatobi, Indonesia, my dekeTravelers. In this week's free Deke's Techniques episode, Deke covers an unsuspecting model in chrome and then sets him adrift in a field of stars. This is definitely a something old (Chrome filter), something new (Select and Mask workspace) kinda technique. So, basically, youngsters and old timers alike will enjoy, especially if they like Terminator movies.

I'm going to make this quick because the sun is setting here in beautiful Southeast Sulawesi. The skies are almost as colorfully gorgeous as the coral reefs below. Oh, speaking of colorful, here is this week's exclusive movie for members, in which Deke takes our chrome-plated friend from the previous movie, and sets it against a fiery blast of a background. If you're not a member of and you want to check it or any other episode out, you can get a free 10-day trial by signing up at
