Make a Love Declaration in Photoshop
Tutorials Photo Manipulation 7151 Views February 7th, 2014

Are you ready for Valentine's Day? You can use this Photoshop tutorial to make a love declaration for that special one in your life. We'll use some basic Photoshop knowledge, blending techniques, color correction and different adjustments. You can of course use any love messages and text for Valentines day and even use your own photo to make it more personal. I really hope you will enjoy making this new photo manipulation tutorial and please don't forget to share the result with us.


We'll use se this premade background as the first layer of our photo manipulation. Place the image like shown in the preview. You might have to use the Clone Stamp Tool to add height to the sky area.

We have to desaturate the image a little bit so use an Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with these settings:

Add this beautiful street clock PNG stock image into your PSD file. Convert this layer into a smart object. Call this layer Street Clock 1. Make a copy and call it Street Clock 2.

Place the Street Clock 1 layer on the right side of the image. Add a Gaussian Blur smart filter to give it a blurry effect. You can also use Motion Blur if you want.

To adjust the luminosity I have added a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer only for the Street Clock 1 smart object.

Place the second smart object, Street Clock 2, on the left side. Resize it to around 50%. Reduce the opacity of the layer to 45% and also add the Gaussian Blur filter. You should obtain a similar result.

Take the girl stock image and use one of these Selection Tools to remove the background. Resize the girl image and place it in the center.

Add two adjustment layer just for the Girl Layer to correct the saturation, luminosity, contrast, etc.
