Abandoned Love Emotional Photoshop Manipulation Tutorial
Tutorials Photo Manipulation 18692 Views March 25th, 2015

Time for another great Photoshop lesson written by our friend Milos Karanovic. In this tutorial you will learn how to create an emotional photo manipulation using advanced blending techniques, adjustments and filters. For some settings you need CS6 which is the newest Photoshop version. But don't worry, you can easily adapt the settings to older Photoshop versions.

To create the feeling of being lost, of abandonment, of love betrayal and so on, many elements were added. For example the red rose, the blood stains and last but not least the sad lady that steps into another dimension, a cold empty place.


Abandoned Love - Emotional Photoshop Manipulation

Download the stock images that we are going to use in this photo manipulation tutorial:

Open the woman stock image in your PSD file. Press CTRL+T to transform and right click to Flip Horizontaly. Right click on layer and choose Blending Options; check Gradient Overlay and set the Blend mode to Overlay, opacity 30% and angle to 0.

Now use Pen Tool to cut the door area. Create new layer and use the Brush Tool with foreground color black and paint as shown in the preview. Set the opacity to 35% and right click on layer to Create Clipping Mask.

Open Cosmos stock image and put it below Model layer as shown in the picture. Transform it by pressing CTRL+T. Duplicate layer (CTRL+J) and fill the blank area using the Clone Stamp Tool for example. Then create a layer mask and use the brush tool with black foreground color to delete some area as shown in the screenshot.

Open Winter Beach then click on Quick Selection Tool to remove sky and press delete.

Create a new layer with clipping mask and set the foreground color to #7b9fc5 and use the Brush Tool to to paint mountains as shown below. Blend mode is set to Multiply. Create a new layer with clipping mask and repeat the same procedure but with gray color, blend mode Normal and Opacity 35%. Create again a new layer with clipping mask and set foreground color to white and do as shown in the screenshot below. Set the opacity to 10%.

Open Rain Texture and add it as shown in the picture below Set the Blend Mode to Soft Light with Opacity 45%.

Now open the Rose stock image and put it in to the hand of the woman. Press CTRL+T to transform and click on the corners to rotate. Create a layer mask and use the brush tool with foreground color black to delete unnecessary parts.

Now we will create blood. Make a new layer and use the Brush Tool. You have to Load Brushes to be able to use the blood brushes. Now use the blood brushes to add some blood splashes using a red color like shown in the image. Blend mode is set to Color Burn.
