Adding a Gradient or Filtered Background To Your Photo

022116a

Sometimes a solid background just isn’t enough and you want a little variance in the background color or lighting. This tutorial will show you a pretty simple way to make that happen in Photoshop. In order to use this tutorial you need to be able to mask out any foreground material so that it will not be altered by the gradient. If you are looking for masking tutorials you can use any of the masking tutorials on this website. I also sometimes use Topaz Remask 5, which is a paid tool, but it helps with some finer details. My hair masking in Photoshop tutorial using channels will do the same thing, it just takes longer.
