Sometimes you might want to combine monotone with color to produce a new look for your photograph. The history brush is very effective in helping to create that combination.

How To Apply Monotone Using The History Brush

 

Note: The history brush will not work properly if the photograph is resampled or the image size has been changed. The snapshots that are indicated below are not saved when the finished photograph is saved.
 
1. Open the file. Choose File --> Open --> Enter the image name to be fixed.
2. Hold the Ctrl Key down and hit the + key a few times to zoom the image to 100%.

5. Select the history brush from the tool box and choose the brush size needed.
6. Click the box on the left side of Snapshot 1 (C). Click open on the history screen and the word open will be highlighted in blue (D).
7. Slowly paint the area that you want to appear in a monotone. You might want to use the Magic Wand to help isolate the sections that need to be painted.
8. You can add additional snapshots at any time if your image needs additional editing.
9. Save the image.

Beautiful Common Eider At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod.

It’s always fun to stop by Rock Harbor to see if there are any photo ops. There usually are! This Common Eider and his wife were swimming about the harbor, more interested in preening than fishing. Beautiful birds, don’t you think? Such a difference male to female…

Phil and I were experimenting with our new cameras and took several “retro” photographs of the Coast Guard Station. We couldn’t decide which one we like better. Which one do you like better?

Gorgeous Skies At The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod.

The skies were magnificent as we hiked the Salt Pond Trail, also known as Nauset Marsh Trail, the other day.  I took a horizontal photograph and thought that it looked pretty. The sky and clouds were spectacular.  And then I took a vertical one. Wow! What do you think?
