How Jewelry Retouching in Photoshop is done?
Photoshop has these amazing features and tools to alter all kind of images and it has the different tools that can be used in the same way. Some of the edits are done in a very major way and some done in a minor way. Both the ways are important to create the wonderful look of the jewelries.
Some Basic and major works of Jewelry retouching are-
Clipping Path- with the help of the pen tool lines are drawn around the subject and after drawing the lines around the edges, it chooses the subject only and detaches everything from the frame. After detaching the unwanted particles you can blend it with the background.
Background removal- it is highly needed if the background of the image is dull as it makes the jewelry even duller, and so the background is removed from the background. This process also needs clipping path to detach the background, often with removing of the particles the background is removed and after removing the background a transparent background is seen, that transparent background is changed to any other background. Mostly the white, black and gray color background is chosen but if you want you can also change with the other colors. Patterned background can be also used. But try to choose the background that doesn’t mix with the color of the jewelry.
Shadow making- if the shadows of the image aren’t looking real then you can create your own shadow with the Photoshop and before creating always remove the older shadow and then create a new one. Shadows can make the image look real or else the jewelries will look animated.
Resizing- it is always used in the jewelry retouching as the shots of the image is very high in resolution and so the file size is always heavy. Heavier files can slow down your site; resizing will help you to load the site faster. You can also save the files as ‘web’ if the images are for the website.
