Ways to edit photos for pets

1. Remove blue fur

To remove blue fur when you edit photos on Photoshop, use MCP’s Bleach Pen. Editors may additionally use Colour safe bleach actions for Photoshop.

Duplicate the background part by going to:

  • Adjustments and then click Replace color

Edit by clicking on the blue area of the animal. You might require clicking on an eyedropper using a (+) symbol to other places of the animal’s fur. You will also need to edit fuzziness using a slider.

Next, you should move the saturation slider towards the left side until the pet’s fur looks normal. In case many other sections of the photo are also affected, just clear the picture around the pet using a brush. Editors may additionally edit the affected sections by creating a layer mask and adjusting those sections which you mask.

2. Edit Neon colors

When you edit photos, the aim must be to produce a photo that is real and better. This can be fixed through going to picture- Adjustments- Vibrance.

Move a slider for saturation towards the left side and the Vibrance slider towards the right side.

If the above does not fix the issue, go to picture- Adjustments- Saturation or Hue. Pick the odd color from a drop-down menu and balance hue. You should also move the slider for saturation towards the left side.

3. Edit heavy vignettes

If an image gets surrounded by black clouding which affects its beauty, edit photos using software to remove it.

The fixing can be done in photoshop by going to filter and then to lens correction.

On the custom tab and under Vignette, move the amount to the right side and push the midpoint to the left side.

But editors can easily prevent heavy vignettes because they are created by the software. So, when you edit a photo, avoid vignette that is heavy.

4. Remove highly lighted shadows and highlights which are blown out

Shadows which are too lightened can make a photo appear weird. The same applies to highlights which are blown out. But this can be corrected when you edit photos using the software.

For those shadows which have so much light, simply add blacks and midtones by using curves or levels. For the blown-out highlights, you should use MCP’s Photoshop. With just a single click, you will edit it correctly.

Also, whenever you produce a photo whose shadows are over-lighted, ease off the shadows tool. Editors should always selectively light sections such as the ears and the eyes which lack catchlights or details without lightened shadows.

Blown out highlights are normally due to a problem with exposure in a camera. Ensure you use the right metering mode for scenes and avoid high contrast when you edit white pets, bright day and so forth.

5. Crispy sharp

Nobody wants their eye to get poked out in a photo. So, when you edit photos in Photoshop, use MCP HD sharpening. It will edit the photo nicely leaving it looking beautiful. You should avoid using sharpening tools such as Sharpen more and Straight Sharper.

[Preset Included] How to create a Sepia effect in Lightroom

Creating a sepia effect in Lightroom does not only mean to drag the Temp slider. You also need to take care of the Shadows, Highlights, Contrast, and HSL. I am going to show you exactly the same. Let’s see how to create a sepia effect in Lightroom.

This is going to be a short tutorial. Almost all Lightroom tutorials are the short one you only play with sliders.

Oh yes, if you want to download the preset, I have it here for you. No sign up is required.

This link will scroll you to the bottom of the tutorial. If it doesn’t, scroll to the bottom. You can see more Lightroom presets here.

Let’s see the before and after.





Let’s begin.

Step 1: Increase the temp

This is the first step and the most important one. Sepia effect basically means that your photo should have a yellowish tint.

  • Increase the temp slider to +20.


This will add a yellowish effect to your photo. This is not everything. We need to do a lot more things.


Step 2: Adjust the tone

Time to adjust the tone.

The goal is to make the shadows bright and dim the highlights. Also, increase the colors in the photo.

  • Decrease the Highlights to -40
  • Increase the Shadows to +90
  • Increase the vibrance to +63


This will make the photo brighter.


Go to the HSL panel.

I am asked by some of you that they don’t see the Hue, Saturation, and Luminance tab. This is because you’re in the “Color” panel. Click on the “HSL” in the title and you’ll see them.

  • Increase the saturation of the Yellow color to +90


This will slightly increase the yellowness in your photo.


Step 3: Adjust the split toning to create a sepia effect in Lightroom

The shadow is already having the sepia tint. We need to give the highlights a sepia tint.

Go to the Split Toning panel.

  • Increase the Hue to 60
  • Increase the Saturation to 10


Your photo should look like this.
