    Arrow Setting The Mood

    Photoshop

    In this TUT I will show how to set a mood with an image and for your whole site.

    I took from each image with the Eyedropper (I) colors at random. The purpose was to find colors that will relate to the image and make the site look as if from one mold. This is a very easy and surefire way to solve the question: *What colors do I pick?* You only have to find or create an image that relates in some way to the theme of what the site is all about.

    Once you have the colors picked, you can change the lightness of them by using Enhance > Adjust Color > Hue/Saturation. Go darker or lighter. I show here some lighter versions, the lower color field is the actual one that I chose.

    The photos that I used as base for the images are my own.

    I do too. It just makes me feel good to dive into color. It is also so very important to influence what a person thinks first off, colors can truly transform a mood, and become quite a sales tool also

    Thank you Toni. I wanted to give people the "how" to find palettes of color, any picture you have can be the source
