Erik Johansson is a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. he works on both personal and commissioned projects. Some of his most awesome works are street illusions. Erik doesn't capture moments, he capture ideas in the form of little pieces which he later turn into an imaginative photomanipulation. He gets inspired by things around him in his daily life and all kinds of things he sees. Although one of his photomanipulations can consist hundreds of layers he always want it to look like it could have been captured in a single shot.

Watch his awesome presentation at Adobe Max 2013 here.

And that's ok. You will never learn tips or techniques with time lapse or speed paint videos. But you will certainly learn a thing or two about workflow. And, believe me, it brings down to earth the working process of complex artworks that otherwise would seem impossible to figure out. Just sit, relax, and watch these awesome time lapse videos from talented Photoshop Artists. Click on each image to watch the video tutorials

Did you know that since Photoshop version CS6 you can apply one-click color effects to your photos? It is very easy to do it using the Color Lookup Adjustment Layer.

In fact, it's so easy that even an absolute beginner can apply beautiful color effects just by following this short tutorial.

Final image

Without getting into too much technical details, a color look-up table (CLUT) is a mechanism, used mainly in video or photography, to transform a range of input colors into another range of colors. While difficult to create, the Color Lookup Tables are very easy to apply and Adobe has provided a nice amount of pre loaded tables for you to use on your photos.

Let's open our base image. You can download this one here. If you plan to use this image in a commercial work, just be sure to read the usage rights in the download page. Photo By Joel Bedford via StockPholio.com

Base image

Click on the Adjustment Layers icon at the bottom right of the Layers palette and select Color Lookup from the menu.

The Color Lookup Palette will open up and you will see several options. Don't worry about those options, we will only concentrate on the pre-built tables.

Just click on the pulldown menus and select the table you want. Always click on the pulldown menu and not on the radio buttons or you will be prompted to load a table to your list. Since we will be using the default tables, this is not necessary.

In this example we will start with one of my favorites, the Horror Blue table.

And that's it! With just a single click we applied an awesome color effect without messing around with curves, levels and other complex techniques.

Let's see some other examples:

2 Strip Color Table

Candle Light Color Table

Film Stock 50 Color Table
