Learn how to add a quick and easy creamy photo treatment that can be used in many ways.
Have you ever found yourself stuck trying to use a monotone photo treatment but black and white is too void of color and sepia is too saturated? I have. I have often found that a creamy photo treatment can be just the ticket when I’m creating projects that have a certain color scheme.
Step One: Open a Photo
- Open a photo (File > Open) that you wish to use.
- Press the letter D to reset the Color Chips to the default of black over white.
Note: Now is a good time to do any edits such as brightening, adding contrast, or anything else before going to the next step.
Step Two: Add a Gradient Map
- Click on the Foreground Color Chip to open the Color Picker.
- In the dialog box, enter Hex # 1c1106. Click Ok.
- Click on the Background Color Chip to open the Color Picker.
- In the dialog box, enter Hex # f0ece3. Click Ok.
- In the Layers panel, click on the Create New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon and choose Gradient Map.
That’s it. You’re done!
Now for a visual comparison so you can see what the difference is between pure black and white and the creamy photo treatment:
And here’s another visual comparison of the creamy photo treatment versus sepia:
Step Three: Save the Photo
- Save the image (File > Save As) as a JPG file with a unique name.
- Close the original photo without saving.
I used my creamy photo to create a scrapbook page about our favorite time of year:
