Today we will create a beautiful photo manipulation. The theme is “Mothers day” which usually is celebrated in the month of may.
In this tutorial, we will learn how to make rain. We will also convert a daytime image to night time one.
So lets start !!
Final image preview:
Open the mother statue image. Using any selection tool extract the statue. I have used the pen tool.
The statue with the background removed.
How to make rain
Now create a new layer and fill with black.
Apply motion blur.
Change the blending mode to screen
Now u have finished making rain!😉
Now your image looks like this–after adding the sky layer too.
Now select the statue layer. Go to image>adjustments>match color
Set the values as shown. Here we are trying to match the statue color with the sky color.
Make sure that under the “layer” option the sky layer is chosen. I have shown this by arrows.
Now select the sky layer. Go to match color.
Set the values as shown. Here we are matching the sky color with statue. Make sure that under layer the statue image is selected.
It will be confusing when u read this. But when u work on these steps u will be able to understand what I mean😉
Now your image looks like this.
Apply color balance
Create a new layer. Paint highlights using white brush with 12% opacity.
Similarly paint shadows on a new layer using black brush with 12% opacity.
Final image we get.
