In this new Photoshop tutorial you will learn how to create a beautiful fantasy photo montage depicting the childhood secret place. What I love about this tutorial is the way in which the mood, atmosphere and drama were created in Photoshop using adjustment layers, filters, etc. So you will also learn how to add mood to your photos, how to work with the Oil Paint Filter and many more.

Advertisment

Stock images:

Open the Background image and delete the mountains. Create a layer mask and use the Brush Tool and begin to delete this area as shown below.

Place the "Cosmos" stock image below Background layer and rasterize holding (Shift+ALT) and press enter.

Open the "Space Hole" and place it on the cosmos (planet) like in the picture. Press CTRL+T to transform it and right click and choose flip horizontal>. Now create a layer mask and use a brush tool to delete unnecessary part (shown in red). Blend mode is set to Linear Dodge.

Now place "Cosmos1" and repeat the procedure as shown in the previous step with blend mode Soft Light.

Create a Photo Filter, use a blue color (code #20a0ea) with Density 37%. Opacity set to 85%.

Now add a Color Balance/Color Lookup and Clipping mask to the background (Right Click - Clipping mask). Set the Midtones (-28 -24 +36) and the Highlights (-17 -16 +20). Opacity is set to 85%. Now add Color Lookup and filter set to "FuturisticBleak" with blend mode Soft Light and opacity 40%.

Place the Children image into your file. Right click on layer and select Blending Options; check Gradient Overlay with Blend mode Overlay, opacity 47% angle 180 and scale 70%.

Now duplicate children layer (CTRL+J) and press CTRL+U to set the lightness to -100. Transform it (CTRL+T), flip vertical and hold CTRL to transform and distort the image. Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set to 4. Opacity is set to 65%. You can delete some parts of the shadow by creating a layer mask and using the brush tool.

Try to make a combination using the leaves images that you got. You don't have to obtain the same photo manipulation. You can always replace the leaves with petals or stars. reply

If you are a Photoshop newbie and you are not familiar with masking techniques, you can use the Eraser Tool to delete the mountain. reply
