Photo Tinting

Tinting a color photo with a solid color is very popular and fairly easy—once you know how. What I really like about this technique is that it lets you take a fairly boring photo and turn it into something artistic quickly and easily.

STEP ONE: Open the photo you want to apply a tint effect to.

STEP TWO: Go to the top of the Layers palette and choose Hue/Saturation from the Create Adjustment Layer pop-up menu (it's the second icon from the left). When the dialog appears, click on the Colorize checkbox. Then, move the Hue slider to choose your tint, and if needed, drag the Saturation slider to the left to decrease the color saturation. When it looks good to you, click OK and a tint is applied to the image. Easy enough, eh?
