How to Make Your Vacation Photos Look Amazing in Photoshop

Did you ever got back from an amazing vacation with what you thought were great images, just to realize that they are not exactly what you hoped they will be? well, Aaron Nace from Phlearn might be able to help you fixed them up a bit in Photoshop in this quick video tutorial.

There are some problems that many people face with vacation photos (and landscape photos in general) such as haze (water particles in the air tend to make the light from the sun bounce and the resulting image looks less clear). Nace uses automatic level to fix the haze as well as curve adjustment layers to brighten and darken parts of the image.

Nace also adds a bit of color as well as a lens flare as well as sharpening using a high-pass filter for a final result.
