Wine Bottle Photoshop Tutorial

Step 1

Create a new document with these dimensions & settings:

  • Width: 800 px
  • Height: 1200 px
  • Resolution : 72 px/inch
  • Color Mode : RGB Color | 8 Bit
  • Background Contents: White


Step 2

Make a new layer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+N or you can go to Layer > New > Layer or you can simply press the button in the image below. Rename the layer created to “Bottle”. To rename a layer, right click on it and search for “Rename”.


Step 3

For this tutorial we need some Guides so let`s do some guide lines. Press Ctrl+R to display the Rulers then make the following guide.


Step 4

Use the Pen Tool (P key), make the next path, between the middle and the right lines of the guide.


Step 5

Press Right click on this path then click on “Fill path” function. Enter these settings:

  • Use Foreground Color – but here you can use black color because my foreground color was black
  • Mode : Normal
  • Opacity : 100%
  • Feather Radius : 0 pixels


Step 6

This is what we should see after we filled the path with the settings above (from Step 5).


Step 7

Now we must duplicate the “bottle” layer. Right click on the “bottle” layer then click on “Duplicate Layer” or select the “bottle” layer and press Ctrl+J.


Step 8

We should now turn to the left of the duplicated layer. Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal.


Step 9

If we are doing everything correct so far, we should have something like this in the picture below.


Step 10

Use the Move Tool (V key) to position the duplicated layer on the left of our middle guide.


Step 11

To merge the layers, select these layers and press Ctrl+E, or right click on the layers and click on the “Merge Layers” function.


Step 12

Use the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L key) and select the top of the bottle like in the image below.


Step 13

Right click on the layer, and click on “Layer via copy”.


Step 14

At the moment we should have 2 layers except the Background layer. Lock the transparent pixels of our copied layer by pressing the button in the image below.


Step 15

Select Brush Tool and fill the layer with a gray color.


Step 16

Make a new layer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+N or go to Layer > New > Layer. Use the Pen Tool (P key) to make a path like in the next picture. Right click on the path and select the “Make Selection” function. Enter “-1px” for the Feather Radius Setting.


Step 17

Fill the created selection with a White color, and then decrease the layer opacity to 25 %.


Step 18

Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and enter the settings below:


Step 19

Make the next path with the Pen Tool (P key).


Step 20

Right click on the path > Enter the settings below, and then click OK.


Step 21

Select the Eraser Tool (E key) and enter these settings:

  • Size : 133
  • Mode : Brush
  • Opacity : 40%


Step 22

With the Eraser Tool, erase a little of the white color. There should be some shadow.


Step 23

Erase on the right edge of our bottle with a small brush size.


Step 24

Duplicate the layer with the white color: either right click on layer then click on Duplicate Layer, or select the layer and press Ctrl+J.


Step 25

With the same technique employed in Step 8, flip the highlight on the left part of the bottle.
