    DS: If your photo is very big, you need to make the erase tool bigger by hitting ‘]’ before click to erase, adjust and test until you satisfy with the result.

    • Sooraj Mathews says:

      Hi Ebin,
      Could you be more specific on step 6. When I choose the focus nd click on it, nothing happens.
      Is there something that had to be done in between??

      THanks

  55. ebin says:

    Rosario: Photoshop earlier than CS2 has no Exposure feature. However you can try using ‘Brightness and Contrast’.

  56. ebin says:

    Jared: Since I am not sure what is ‘difference’ and ‘exclusion’ you mean, I’m just gonna tell you that the brush should be BLACK color in the layer mask thumbnail.

  60. Bones says:

    Ciao Ebin!
    I found your tutorial so useful, I made a little action to automate most of the effects you describe. I just added a couple of tweaks to it: on a particular point you tell the users to flatten the image. I applied a Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E action instead, making a copy of all existing layers and then merging those!. At the end of the process, when you describe how to apply a blue filter to the resulting image, I added a simple “duplicate layer” action, so the effect is put on a new image instead of the original. I think it’s best this way, what do you think?

    You may find the action on my site :) Enjoy!

  61. Javier says:

    Hey ebin! I think you missed my comment, but can you tell me what you think of the results I got on my photograph? Thanks a bunch!

  100. Although nifty, and a really helpful tutorial for those so inclined, all of these effects aren’t really required to make your photos look like stills from a movie. It really depends on what you’re photographing. For instance, the name of my company is LetterboxTen because of the cinematic effect my images have. Of course there is post processing, but I don’t use any crazy manipulated methods to produce my photos. Check it out if you want. letterboxten.com

    Nicely done, I’ll try this with TheGimp but using a filmgrain effect instead of noise, and vignetting with gradients, there is even a plugin that blurs the image accordingly to a source gradient it’s called “focus blur” or fblur.

    Nice effect, but you don’t need Photoshop. I used the Gimp! Although the menu’s aren’t the same, you can get the same effect. Gamma adjust in The Gimp is under Colors -> Levels. Gamma is the top middle slider. All other adjustments should be familiar if you used to The Gimp. Here is my source: and the result:

  288. Ranx says:

    Amazing tutorial, but…

    On step 6 I think that it must say:

    6. Select eraser tool(e), set the master diameter to 400px. Then choose the focus point in the photo and click on it.

    using a brush doesn’t work, coz we need to open a hole on the mask…

    thanks a lot!

  289. ahndunk says:

    thank you, it has great effect to my photos

  290. TARUN says:

    that’s a good one

  291. Anthony S says:

    Rather than erasing or masking after applying the effects, I think it would be easier and more effective to do a quick mask by pressing ‘q’, create a radial gradient for the focal point, press ‘q’ again, then apply the filter. That way the effect will gradually increase as you move away from the focal point.

    thanks a lot!

  293. Vamsi says:

  331. Riat says:

    Thanx a lot for the tutorial, but I was actually interested in making a video lool like this instead of a photo. Did anyone try this on home made video? I was wondering if I could convert avi movie into a adobe filmstrip FLM, and then apply all these settings to all the frames, and save them into avi. I assume that we will have a Hollywood moving picture, ain’t we?

  332. Mamacita says:

    Thanks for the tutorial, i loved it ;)

  333. Riat says:

    Hello again. I find this tute very interesting but , like i’ve said, it is not a hollywood picture that I’am interested about but in Hollywood moving picture. My idea is the following:
    1. Convert avi to filmstrip with adobe premiere
    2. Apply this settings of the above tute to all the frames of the filmstrip
    3.Convert it to avi again
    4. Hollywood moving picture instead of a picture.
    Is it possible?

  388. Jacob James says:

    Hi, for those people that say that this doesnt really work for them when it comes to exposure part: think! of course not every photo will work with same setting, what are you trying to achieve with exposure is more vivid whites and darker blacks, try going around 0.6 with exposure and fine tune to make white parts vivid, then with offset try ro darken the black parts, dont play much with gamma setting, it ruins color. slightly(10-20) left or right will do but no further.
    And also if you try to achieve the bluish effect thats shown at bottom of tutorial but it doesnt really work for you then do what i did, switch to CMYK mode, select your image layer, go to levels, from drop down menu choose cyan, then play with midtones slider, about 25% to the right should give you the effect, cheers and good luck with it, also for author: great tutorial man.

    Looks pretty much like a soldier in a post-nuclear-apocalyptic environment i think, i only miss some burned skulls :-)

  400. Good Tutorial! thanks!

  401. Help me out here :C says:

    I’m having some trouble with step 2. When i lower the offset it really REALLY messes up the whole thing. It’s not giving me a result anywhere near yours. I mean.. it just darkens all the dark places. Does this only work with hq lighten up pics? I tried using different options but i still can’t get a good result like in your example. In yours you don’t loose ANY quality after the exposure, and when i try it, it just comes out like shit.

  402. Help me out here :C says:

    Whenever i try the 2nd step, my result is NOTHING like yours. The offset messes everything up and makes it look very low quality. Can you just help me out?

    lo kok pas image>adjusment exposurenya g muncul ya,,
    mohon dikasih tu donk,,

    hhe…

  438. Sam says:

    Frustrating, I’ve done this twice now and I can’t get it to work. I keep ending up with an image covered in 70% black with the black in the focus point erased. So the focus point is erased, but everything is still black. Not sure what I’m doing wrong here, I feel like I’m following the steps perfectly, but obviously not.

  439. OHHHH.. it very cool; I like it, This guide help us to make very interesting photo

    Thanks

    Having some issues with this – I think I’ve got the steps down, but the blacks are to dark and especially at the exposure step, the photos I’m trying this on get far too “moody” if you will.

    Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Stephen – shuttersandsounds.wordpress.com

    This is a very good post. By the way, is blurring necessary? How do we proceed without blurring? For instance, something like this: http://www.filmofilia.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Ip-Man-2.jpg and this http://goninmovieblog.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/ip-man-movie-still07.jpg.
