Hi, Blenderheads! Reyn here from

Packt Publishing recently published my article titled "Introduction to Blender 2.5: Color Grading".  This is Part 1 of a two-part series which will be a very basic introduction to Blender's color grading capabilities.

In Part 1, I will be discussing these topics:

  • Loading Image Files in the Compositor
  • Loading Sequence Files in the Compositor
  • Loading Movie Files in the Compositor
  • Contrasting With Color Curves
  • Colorizing With Color Curves
  • Color Correcting With Color Curves
  • Colorizing with Hue Adjustment
  • High Dynamic Look
  • Image Sharpening
  • Color Overlaying
  • Toning Up and Toning Down Colors
  • Creating a Sepia Tone

Thank you so much for your time and I hope it could be of much help to you.  Stay tuned for Part 2 where I'll be discussing more advanced color grading techniques in Blender (and will give away some freebies as a reward!).

So, let's head on to the article, shall we?
