Photoshop Tutorial: Easy Magical Forest Effect

Easy Magical Forest Effect
Note: I'm using Photoshop CS5.


STEP 1:
  • FILE > OPEN > Picture of forest




STEP 2:
  • Go to CREATE NEW LAYER (Shift+CTRL+N). A new layer will appear and it should be on top of your image. This will be your Gradient Layer.

  • GRADIENT TOOL > Then choose RADIAL GRADIENT

  • Choose color from PASTELS > Click OK


  • Pick YELLOW, PINK, PURPLE gradient to get this effect. (The X’s is where you should point your mouse)





STEP 3:
  • Select the gradient layer > From NORMAL, change to OVERLAY

(Your work should appear like this)



STEP 4:
  • To add a starry effect, download/copy a SPACE BACKGROUND. (Google it!)
  • Open it to a new file > Use RECTANGULAR MARQUEE TOOL > Select the part you want to use > CTRL+C (Copy)

  • Then go to your project and CTRL+V (It will automatically open in a new layer)
*Please note that this layer should be on top of the gradient layer

  • Adjust the photo CTRL+T ( FREE Transform) to completely fill the picture




STEP 5:
  • Select Space Image layer. Go to IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > BLACK & WHITE…
  • Once it is black & white, select the layer and from NORMAL, change to OVERLAY

(It should appear like this)

  • You can also adjust its brightness. IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > BRIGHTNESS




STEP 6:
  • To add white orb’s effect, CREATE NEW LAYER > Place under the gradient layer
  • Click BRUSH TOOL > Choose SOFT ROUND PRESSURE SIZE and start placing your orbs! (Use 2-3 different sizes of brush to make a more dramatic orb effect!)

  • Adjust OPACITY to lighten the orb layer.




And your finished project should look like this!
