3.6 Glow Effect

You can now add some glow to the bottom of the bottle to give the image more realism. This will be done using layer blends and default brushes.

3.6 Glow Effect

Hey this is Gavin from tuts+ and in this lesson, we're going to continue adding color and some lighting effects to the mountain area. And we're gonna play around with the elements within it to compliment the perfume bottle. So I'm gonna zoom right in, and what I'd like to do is just right click, choose the perfume bottle, and bring it down slightly so it looks more integrated with the hill. Let's choose this mount three. Hold down the Alt key, and let's just duplicate that. And let's Ctrl or Cmd + t, and let's flip horizontally. And let's put that round about there. Open the layers panel, let's go to the mask. Press b for brush. And let's just see. Okay, just gonna paint this back in. Just to see how it looks, its height there. Okay, so it's probably better to keep this layer hidden for now. Another way to do it would be to mask out the perfume bottle, so let's create a mask on there. Let's choose black, and let's just paint that out, there. And that's easier. Okay, let's zoom in. Let's go to the first one that we created around the bottle. Let's go to the brush. And let's just get rid of the edges there, smooth that out. Like that. Let's zoom out again and see how that looks. That's looking more integrated with the hill. We could always add some more to that. But what I'm gonna do for now is I'm gonna delete this layer, create a new layer, back to my brush tool, let's increase the size. And let's hold down the L key so we can select a color. What we want, so I'm gonna choose this pink here. And I'm just gonna paint that in around. There like that. Okay, now I'm gonna experiment here and see how it looks. Let's create a layer blend. Let's choose vivid light chosen there. Hard light, soft light, overlay. Linear light, vivid light, okay. So there we have some color coming off the perfume bottle. I'm just going to bring down the opacity to see how it looks. Okay, let's duplicate the wet layer and see how it looks. Let's just bring down the opacity there. Let's create a mask. And let's paint out the area in the middle on the perfume bottle. Take away some of that strong color there. And let's do the same on this layer and see how it looks. So there's not stock. Now let's zoom out. Okay, it's not too bad for now. Let's paint out some of this over here over the waterfall and just behind as well. Let's just take it up slightly. All right now, and let's open this panel up let's just call this Scent One, Scent Two, and let's group these together. Call that Scent. Let's close that down for now. Okay, so. What I'd like to do is scroll down to this pink tinted layer that we had. And I'd like to just add some more tint. So I'm just gonna choose this pink here, bring the opacity down to 10% and I'm just gonna paint in some pink here, this side of the mountain. Let's close that down, and just slightly on this side as well. Okay, just ever so slightly so we have some tint on both sides. Okay, let's go back up. Let's just hide it. I like to hide it just to see how it looks. And what we could do, bring down the opacity slightly. All right, let's close that down. And I'm gonna zoom back in, and right-click. And we've got for one I'm just going to move this, play with this, just zoom out slightly. Let's put it a bit higher and see how it looks. Let's try it there. Let's right click on that one. Fall two. Let's put that there. See how it looks. Like that, okay. Let's zoom back out. Bring it across slightly okay, so I think we're good to go with that. In our next lesson, what I would like to do is add some more scent effects coming off of the mountain, and then we're going to be adding more foreground elements I'm building up the image with adjustment layers to really bring out the colors of the composition.
