Create Instagram Amaro Effect in Photoshop CS6 | TrickyPhotoshop

Hello guys I am Vaibhav and in this tutorial I am going to show you how to add Instagram Amaro effect in Photoshop CS6. Last time I discussed about Adding Instagram Vintage/1977/Nashville Effect in Photoshop which is a recommended tutorial if you like Instagram effect. You can also check the all the Instagram Effects here. If you have ever used Amaro effect then you might have seen that the effect basically contains huge amount of red color with highlight part is overexposed and darker part is underexposed. I am going to show you how to achieve that thing in Photoshop.

Open your photo in Photoshop and then press F7 for the layer palette. Click on the add adjustment layer. After that click on the color balance. You can also select the “color balance” by going to image>adjustment>color balance and you cannot edit your changes in the future. But by using adjustment layer we can edit the color balance in the future.


Check luminosity. This will take care of the light present in your photo. Increase the red by +77. Decrease the green by –33 and decrease the blue by –100. Note that this settings changes from photo to photo.
