* the angle and width of the beam will depend on your image, the target is a falling beam on the heart *
Change this layerblending mode” on – Line Illuminator (Linear dodge), or Lightening (Screen).
Here’s what you get when you’re done.
* If it is not possible to achieve the effect of a falling beam on the heart, as in the screenshot, take “Eraser” (Eraser), the size of the brush is large, the stiffness is 0%, the opacity is low and erase the extra light areas. Or take the tool “Dimmer” (Bern) and darken the desired areas of the image. *
