Add Magic Sparkle Effect in Photoshop

I will create a new PSD file, size around 960x665px just to give you an idea about the proportions of the image. Fill the background layer with black color. Add the Moonlight Castle stock image in a new layer.

Add a layer mask to the Moonlight Castle layer. Pick the Brush Tool and use a soft round brush (color black) to paint over the edges of the image. Make sure you paint inside the layer mask and not the layer. That way we blend the two images and have a soft transition between the two. You might have to use different opacity levels.

Add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer above the Moonlight Castle layer. Right click on the adjustment layer and choose Create clipping mask .

Pick the Brush Tool and use a soft round brush (color black) to paint over the castle area to lighten the castle. You might have to use different opacity levels.

Add the Girl Stock in a new layer and call it Night Fairy.

Add a layer mask to the Night Fairy layer. Pick the Brush Tool and use a soft round brush (color black) to paint over the edges of the image. Make sure you paint inside the layer mask and not the layer. That way we blend the Castle and the Girl images and have a soft transition between the two.

You might have to use different opacity levels. It is better to paint over the surface multiple times with low opacity levels to create a fog smoky effect.

Add a Gradient Map adjustment layer using a grayscale gradient (color #161212, location 0%; color #626262, location 43%; color #ffffff, location 85%).
