I'm new to Photoshop and I am looking for hints or a tutorial to create images with a style like in this magazine:


I especially like color and detail of these images.

Any ideas?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @MattGrum Note that the fill light slider doesn't exist in LR 4+ (strictly, in process version 2012 and later). \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you please help us by providing a title and body text which describe the effect and what you like about the "color and detail" and how you see these images as unique in that way? See meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/3881/… \$\endgroup\$

It looks like the saturation was cranked up considerably, contrast a bit higher than "normal", and the whites allowed to clip a little.
