Today you can learn photo to water reflections from scratch. Open a photo you'd like to use for this project
In this tutorial I'm going to show you what I think is the most realistic technique to achieve the look of watercolor paintings from photos. The technique used in this tutorial allows you to actually hand-paint your image, which gives it extraordinary nuance and a spectacular result.
How to turn your image to watercolor paint using photoshopOk, now you can follow this steps. If you like this photoshop filter start with me. Open a photo you'd like to use for this project. I downloaded this one from google. To ensure your results will look similar to mine, Check your photo's resolution by going to Image and Image Size. The photo I'm using has a resolution of 72 pixels per inch. To ensure your results will look similar to mine, type in this amount for Resolution. The Width and Height can be any amount. Make 2 copies of your image by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + J twice. Name the top layer, "Pencil Lines". Click the eyeball next to that layer to temporarily hide the layer. Name the middle layer, "Smart Blur". Go to Filter, Blur and "Smart Blur". Make the Radius: 10, the Threshold: 30 and the Quality: High. Then, click OK or press Enter or Return. Make the Pencil Lines layer visible and active. Go to Filter and Filter Gallery. Open the "Stylize" folder and click "Glowing Edges". Make the Edge Width: 1, the Edge Brightness: 12 and the Smoothness: 15. Then, click OK. Invert the image by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + I. We'll remove its color by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + Shift + U. Change the Blend Mode to Multiply and reduce the opacity to 80%. Make the "Smart Blur" layer active and make a copy of it. Name it "Brush". Invert it and change its Blend Mode to "Color Dodge". We're ready to paint over our image, which is when the magic begins. First, let's zoom out a bit, so we have more room to paint. Press Ctrl or Cmd + the minus key of your keyboard. Open your Brush Tool and Brush Picker. Click the gear icon and click "Reset Brushes". When you see this message, click OK to replace the current brushes with the default brushes. Click the gear icon again and click "Small List". Scroll to the bottom and click "Dry Brush". I'll make its size 140 pixels, but feel free to adjust its size depending on the size of your image. Make its opacity 10% and press Enter or Return. Loosely brush over your image. Open your Brush picker again, click the gear icon and this time, click "Wet Media Brushes". Again, click OK to replace your current brushes with the Wet Media Brushes. Click "Watercolor Textured Surface" and press Enter or Return. Make its Opacity 50% and press Enter or Return. To make your brush bigger, press the right bracket key on your keyboard and make sure your "CapsLock" key is not on. Brush over your image and adjust the size of your brush accordingly. Notice, when the brushstrokes overlap eachother, the areas gets darker as the color builds just as actual watercolors do. If you want to hide some of the pencil lines or minimize their appearance, make the Pencil Lines layer active and click the Layer Mask icon to make a layer mask next to the Pencil Lines. Increase its opacity to 100% and brush over the pencil lines that you want hide. If you want to just lighten some of the pencil lines and not completely hide them, just reduce your brush's opacity and brush over those lines. Next, we'll make our colors more vibrant by clicking the Adjustment layer icon and clicking "Vibrance". Drag the Vibrance slider all the way to the right. The last step is to add a paper texture. To do this, make the Smart Blur layer active and go to Filter and Filter Gallery. Close the Stylize folder and open the Texture folder. Click "Texturizer". Choose "Sandstone" for the texture. Make the Scaling 100%, the Relief 2 or 3 and the Light from the Top. Thats it. You are done. You can add diffecet values to change quilty of this effect. This is the easy method to make watercolor effect. If you have any questions contact me or commet below. Share my tutorial with others Thank you.

Hi, I m pasindu from psdsquare. In this tutorial, you can learn how to make the smoke effect in photoshop. There are many ways to do this, however, I found that the way shown in this tutorial is relatively quick and effective.
How to Create Smoke EffectClick on brush tool and make sure white is your foreground color. The opacity should be about 50% in your brush presets check shape dynamics, airbrush and smoothing. I'm using the 40-pixel brush. Create a new layer by clicking on the new layer button and retitle this "smoke". Start brushing and wavy lines. I found that using a few different size brushes that overlap each other work very well. I'm using a different combination of brush strokes that I did earlier. You may have to try it a few times before you find the right combination. It looks terrible now but in the end, it looks like the smoke image you saw at the beginning of this tutorial. "Press ctrl + t" or "command + t" on a mac to bring up the transform and press on the warp tool. Click on the areas of the warp transform and move them around until it forms the shape of the smoke that you like. Press "Enter" or "Return" to accept it. Go to filter > other > maximum. It will immediately start looking more like smoke. I chose 12 pixels in the maximum window but you may find a different amount better suited for your brush strokes. I want to bring the smoke more into the bottom area. I'll call up transform again and click on the warped transform button. Add some filters to smoke. First, destruct the smoke layer to accept smart filters. To do this go to Filter > convert for the smart filter. This window will pop up telling that the layer will become a smart object so just press ok. Now need to soften up the smoke and add some atmosphere. Go to filter > blur > surface blur. the surface blur window will open I'm using a radius of 85 and a threshold of 81. Go to the layers panel and click on the new layer button. Click on the smoke layer while pressing ctrl or command. This will bring up its selection. Then click on the new layer to activate it. Go to filter > render > clouds. Retitle the layer smoke overlay and change the mode from normal to overlay. Change the shape of the smoke a bit. So we're going to call up the transformed by clicking ctrl + t or command + t and then click on the walk transform button. Just manipulate the warp transform to give our smoker shape we like and for finishing touches, you can always add remove or change the filters until you're happy with the result.
Hello there, I m Pasindu from psdsquare. This is my first photoshop tutorial post. In this tutorial, you can learn great features in photoshop CS5, CS6, CC, CC2017. The refine edge feature and the quick tool. The quick selection tool allows you to draw selections around an image very quickly while the refine edge featured as a fantastic job creating detailed masks for feathery areas like hair. In many ways, the refine edge tool replaces the extract tool plug-in filter in earlier versions of photoshop. That you have to download from the adobe site.
