So 2009 I started a thread called Ultinate Studio and gave away one of my secrets. Not that I thought other people weren't using the techique but it was a great free resource and I gave a quick technique summary. So for this year I thought i'd give away another good one in my opinion that I don't see discussed much but I'm not on many websites so who knows?

As photogs we hat to lose image info when editing but this isnKt always a bad thing if that info is undesirable skin texture or flat lifeless images. In music they do a thing called compression and expansion which I losely relate to what I'll talk about here.

You can compress image info and expannd it to give cool affects and pop to an image. There are many ways to do this (e.g. Drop sat real low then raise it).

Another way which is the one I'm going to focus on is color spaces; converting and assigning. This is a quick and easy way to add really cool looks to your images. As a starting point try the following:

Edit your image for the normal stuff
Assign a new profile without converting
I have lost of printer profiles besides the ones PS cxomes with to get a lot of choises
Click on the profile selector and start arrowing through them with preview on to see the change
Don't worry about it being to dark, you can always adjust afterward adding to the affect
Now after you assign a profile, convert the profile back to the one you edit in or save as.
I edit in ProRGB and save jpgs in sRGB
Adjust your image to complete getting the desired look
Curve, sat, photo filter etc.

Sorry I did't post an image. I'm writing this from my phone sick in bed.

Thats, this will be useful for me! As you know, you can do so much with photoshop you forget some of it. I get stuck in a PP rut, i apply the same effects the save format if you like...

Ill give this a shot, i got a mini shoot tomorrow!
