Golden glow

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create this simple glowing pattern in Photoshop. This effect looks cool, but it is very easy to do, which is very convenient for beginners.
That’s what we get.

Materials for the lesson:

Alright, let’s get started.

Step 1. Create a new 600px * 600px document, fill the background with black. Create a new layer, name it “cloud”. Lower the opacity to 40% using brush the clouds you just uploaded make clouds on a layer.

Create a new layer of “background light”, a large soft white brush click where shown.

As you can see, with this you have created, a good background for work.

Step 2. Create a new layer using brush , which you uploaded, make a pattern.

Set the following blending options
Drop shadow (shadow):

Bevel and Emboss (stamping / bevel):

We created light and shadow

Step 3. Now we can add a glow effect. To do this, simply duplicate the layer with a flower and apply a filter to it. Gaussian blur (blurring according to gauss) (the blurred layer should be under the layer with the non-blurred flower around the Translator).

You will see the light around the flower.

Step 4. Now let’s add colors to the image. I applied Color balance (color balance). Personally, I think this is the fastest and easiest way to add color to an image.
I decided to make it gold (settings shown below)

You should have this:

Please note that there is no need to use the same colors, you can experiment.

Step 5. Now let’s smooth the image (make copies of the flower layers before you do that). Duplicate the background layer and apply the following filter to it. Smart sharpen (Smart Sharpen)

Now you can see that the image has become more crisp and detailed.

Now create a new layer on top of all the previous ones, take brush about 90% hardness, press F5 and apply the following settings.
Shape dynamics (dynamics of form)

Scattering (dissipation)

Transfer (Other Dynamics) (transform, another dynamic)

Tick ​​off Airbrush (sprayer) and Smoothing smoothing

Draw a brush with such circles

Step 6. Duplicate the layer and apply a filter to it. Smart sharpen (Smart Sharpen).

Lower opacity (opacity) up to 80% and you will see underlined edges around circles

Note: I personally prefer the filter to create edges Smart sharpen instead Stroke (stroke). In my opinion, the result is clearer and more beautiful.

Create a new layer and name it “program’s nail”, set the blending mode to soft light (soft light) and a soft white brush make a few clicks.

Finally add a level control layer to the very top, with the following parameters (this will change the contrast and add more depth).

Add layer mask to layer control layer

You will have this effect.
