3.7 Perfume Scent

You will use the Flame Painter plugin to create light trails coming from the bottle. You will then import the light back into Photoshop for positioning.

3.7 Perfume Scent

Hey, this is Gavin from Tuts+, and in this lesson I'd like to continue adding some color and scent effect to the perfume bottle and the mountain. What I'd like to do in continuation is just zoom in. Let's open the layers panel, and let's go to the last element of the mount we created there. We'll fountain the seam back out slightly so we can see easier. Just gonna go to the levels panel. I'm just gonna play with that. Let's bring it up to bring out some of the highlight there. And just press OK. Now, what I'd like to do is go to our scent group, and here we have the scents we created earlier. Just gonna hold down the Alt key and duplicate that. Zoom out slightly. I'm just gonna rotate this scent. And there, so you've got some in the middle. Just gonna bring it across to that side there. And if I want to drag it across to the right as well. Let's bring this one down slightly, just to bring out more of the scent overall. So, we can leave that as it is for now. What I'd like to do is create some flowing kind of pink scent effects that come off the bottle. To do that, I'd like to use a small plug in. It works as a plug in or a software, stand alone software enabled for Mac and PC. And it's called Flame Painter, so I'm just gonna go ahead and open Flame Painter. And this is the default layout. And I've got a whole host of different effects we can use. And, it's very simple. Don't play with the settings too much, but this is the type of effect you get on flame painter. You get some really nice, smooth effects, and we can just choose flame. And, you can be really creative with this. But for the sake of the tutorial, I'm gonna stick with the second to last brush at the bottom of the panel. I'll leave the color as it is. I'm just gonna create a really nice smooth effect, like that. Bear in mind, you know you need to make sure you've got layer two selected. You don't wanna paint on layer one. You wanna be able to hide layer one, and save that as an individual PNG. So I'm gonna go ahead now, and I'm gonna take away layer one. And, let's save that. And let's go to the desktop, and let's just save that as flame 1. And I'm gonna choose PNG for that and see how it works. So let's go back to Photoshop. I'm just gonna drag the PNG in, there you go, from the desktop. And let's make this smaller. Bring it right down. Let's open our layers panel. Let's right click and rasterize that and leave it in the scent group. That's good. Okay, so let's just zoom in. In fact, let's make sure I've got it selected there. That's good. All right, so let's make that slightly smaller again. I'm gonna, while it's still on this selection, I'm gonna right click. Choose warp. I'm just gonna bend this around, like that. We'll bring it in slightly. See how it looks. And, let's change the hue of this. So I'm gonna open the hue panel, and let's bring it across. In fact, let's press colorize to make it all one color. And let's try and match the pink. Let's bring the saturation up to about there. I think that's okay there. Let's go back to our layers panel. Let's create a mask. And let's go to the brush tool. And let's just paint out what we don't want. So let's zoom in. And let's go for 20% opacity. And let's just paint out some of this, just see how it looks. I want it to be quite subtle, so it looks as if it's just flowing but not too strong. Let's go back to our layers panel. And, let's maybe duplicate the layer, see how that looks. Bring it down slightly. Mm, okay, let's leave it off for now. What I'd like to do is, let's just. Duplicate the individual layer. In fact, let's choose this one here. And let's just drag that across, Command or Control + T. Let's flip it horizontally. And this one's quite faint, so, let's bring our opacity up. And let's close that down. Control or Command + T. Let's just warp it and bring it round here to the mountain again slightly. So there. So open the layers panel. Let's play with the highlights now. So let's open levels up, and let's just see if we can add a little bit of brightness to the layers. Leave it there and the same for this one. Let's see if we can bring it up slightly. Okay. That's good. So we've got a nice flow, an elegant flow coming off of the perfume bottle which is good. So let's just zoom out and see how we look. I think that's fantastic for now. You know our next lesson what we'll do is we'll be working on the lighting effects that are coming off of the perfume bottle. And we'll be accentuating this area around the edge of the bottle as well with lighting effects
