Customizing the Auto Color Command in Photoshop

869 Customizing the Auto Color command from Deke's Techniques by Deke McClelland

Greetings, dekeArcticans. I am coming to you today from the past, because I need to write this post before we head into the Drake Passage tonight, on our way to Antarctica.

It’s very appropriate that this week’s free Deke’s Techniques episode features a photo of me in the coldest water I had (at the time) ever experienced as a diver. (If all is going well as you read this, I am in water that’s 5 degrees colder than the water at Silfra (-2°C/28°F.)

But anyway, getting back to Iceland. In the course of this movie, Deke shows you how to not only apply Auto Color as a non-destructive modification in Photoshop, but he shows you how to get to some customizable settings that allow you to set an “Auto” adjustment that works for your photograph. Here’s what this photo looked like before Deke adjusted it:

And with a few simple clicks and color settings, you get the effect up above.

Deke’s Techniques, spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of Photoshop (and scuba diving) challenges!

  • In Adobe illustrator draw you can use whichever canvas size you want to start with, but you will be locked into that canvas size until you’re finished or export the project to something else. Of course, it does have built-in exporting to Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop for preserving the layers in your document. Adobe illustrator draw compares well with a couple of other apps on the App Store, namely Autodesk Sketchbook, Affinity Designer, Procreate, Autodesk Graphic, and Vectornator. The only one out of this list that can-do vector graphics and is also free is Vectornator.

  • You can utilize the Auto Color Correction Options discourse box to change precisely how Photoshop CS6 applies its Auto Tone, Auto Color, and Auto Contrast controls, just as for the physically worked Levels and Curves directions. You can apply the settings just to a specific picture altering session or spare the settings as defaults for all your Photoshop work.
