How to Create a Deus-Ex Inspired Photo Manipulation with Photoshop

Step 21

We're almost finished but we still need to apply some more color correction. Create a Solid Color layer, set the color to #7D7D7D, and set the Blending Mode to Overlay. Place this layer on top of all layers and convert this to a Smart Object. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and apply these settings.

Step 22

This composition could use some vignetting and we can do so on this layer. Go to Filter > Lens Correction and apply these settings and click OK.

Step 23

As a final touch, this image could use something else to make it stand out a bit more. Download the Bokeh Pack by Araleva (Alternative) and pick any file you like. Place the file on top of all the layers and set the Blending Mode to Lighten. The bokeh image needs some correction as some color is showing through that we really don't want. Create a Levels Adjustment layer, place it on top of the bokeh image and right-click on that layer and create a Clipping Mask.

  1. Having read through the steps, and revisited the example image at the start I can't imagine why I would want to do this. Is there something about the title that I don't understand?

  2. Great tutorial, easy to follow with all the screen shots. You came across just fine. Especially enjoyed it because I love the game,Thanks!

  3. Great effect which you do very well! As a tutorial your steps could be explained a bit better.

    Thanks very much though!
