After you’ve cut out the objects and integrated the several photographs, a process known as compositing, I’ll show you how to match the colours of the backdrops and objects.

I’ve downloaded some images from Adobe Stock. I’m going to show you two different scenarios with two different ways, a simpler, more monochromatic cooler image and a more complex image with numerous colours, so I have a picture of the woman and two different backgrounds.

The images are accessible here.

The colours frequently clash when you composite or combine images from several sources, such as your own photos or photos from other stock websites. This tutu will demonstrate how to coordinate them.

The lady has been removed, as you can see. And since I have a tonne of tutorials on how to do that, I won’t go through those processes. I’ll demonstrate how to coordinate the colours for you.


Lets get started with the first example.


Make sure you have selected the layer that you want to change the color on (the woman). Choose> Adjustments>Match Color.


Under the Match Color, we want to choose the background for the overall toning from this background and apply it to our woman.

Under Source, choose the right source “roof top balcony with cityscape” That is the document we’re working in.

Under Layer, select the background layer in Step 3. As of right now, the background colour will be applied. No, it doesn’t currently appear promising. We have a few measures to take care of, so don’t be alarmed.

STEP 4 The fade slider controls how much of that colour is applied; it functions something like a color’s volume control. So let’s bring it up until we reach the appropriate level. Just focus on the colour for now; don’t bother about the tone or anything else.

I chose this woman in the white dress because I was considering the colours in the white at the time. It kind of makes the colour tone easy to see.

STEP 5 The luminance (brightness) is the next setting we wish to change. Let’s go back a bit in time. It was losing details and was being blown away.

Okay, so don’t worry, we can return and make adjustments later. The Colour Intensity comes next, though. This resembles a saturation in certain ways. If I lower this, you’ll see that everything turns entirely black and white.

If I go all the way up, it’s going to go very, very colorful.

I’m noticing that this scene is a little bit desaturated, so I’m actually taking this less than 100 because we want to match that.

Let’s have a look at this now in step seven. Let’s see the before and after after I simply apply it. In the past, when the background was cooler and she was

and afterwards, where it corresponds. Now, if you wanted to, you could use Curves to change her brightness or do it on the following image, but this is still good.
