Step 18 – Add transparency to the glass layer
Using the same technique used earlier, we’ll make the dark area of the layer transparent so that it blends into the photo. Right click on the layer with the glass then choose Blending Options.
At the bottom of the window in the blend if options, drag the black input sliders towards the right until the background disappears.
Hold the Alt key on your keyboard then drag the right black input slider towards the right until the edges are softened.
Change the blending mode of the current layer to luminosity. This will allow the color from the layers below to be seen through the glass.
Step 19 – Prepare the layers
Duplicate the layer with the glass (Layer > Duplicate Layer)
Hide the other layer by clicking on the icon.
Step 20 – Distort the first glass layer
With the current glass layer selected, choose Edit > Free Transform to use the transform tool. Hold down your left mouse button anywhere inside the boundary border then drag it to the models left ankle.
While holding down the Alt key on your keyboard, drag the upper middle handle downwards so that your shattered glass looks like the image below.
Rotate the layer like shown below. To rotate, position your cursor outside the bounding border then drag to rotate.
While holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, drag the bottom left handle towards the bottom left like shown below.
While holding down the Ctrl key, drag the bottom right handle towards the upper left like shown below. Press enter on your keyboard to apply the changes.
Step 21 – Distort the second glass layer
Select the other shattered glass layer then enable back the visibility by clicking where the icon should be.
Like before, we’ll use the transform tool to distort the layer. Choose Edit > Free Transform then position the center of the shattered glass at the models other ankle.
While holding down the alt key, drag the upper middle handle towards the bottom to shrink the layer like shown in the image below.
Rotate the layer like shown below by clicking anywhere outside the boundary border and dragging.
While holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, drag the top left corner downwards. Press enter on your keyboard to apply the changes.
