Love Me Photoshop Manipulation for Valentine Day

Tutorials Photo Manipulation 23198 Views February 12th, 2013

Learn how to create a beautiful photo manipulation for Valentine's Day. You need some simple blending techniques like color matching and of course shadow and lighting. I am really curious to see your own interpretation of my love photo manipulation; as usual I am sure you will upload amazing Photoshop artworks.

Advertisment

Start with this beautiful underwater premade background as first layer for this water photo manipulation. Call this Underwater Layer. If you want you can use another under water background from this list or you can create one yourself.

Add this sunset stock image in a new layer above the Underwater Layer. Call this layer Sunset Layer.

Set the blend mode of the Sunset Layer to Overlay. Add a layer mask to this layer; and use the Gradient Tool inside the layer mask to hide the grass area. Use a black and white linear gradient and you should obtain result like this:

Duplicate the Sunset Layer (without the mask and blend mode) and add a layer mask to hide the grass area and part of the sky. Set the opacity to around 35%.

Add a >Color Balance adjustment layer only for the Sunset Copy Layer with these settings

I will now add this Dunguaire Castle stock image in a new layer. Use one of the Selection Tools to crop a part of this castle like shown in the image.

Resize the castle and place it like shown in the image.

Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and make sure you click the Clip to layer button so that the adjustment to apply only for the castle. Reduce the opacity of the castle Layer to about 30%

Open the Girl Stock in a new layer and use the Selection Tools to crop the girl like shown in the image. It is better to use the Pen Tool for cropping this image.
