Luminar AI lets you turn your ideas into reality with powerful, intelligent AI. Download the photo editor and see how you can completely transform your photos in a few clicks.
Do not deselect the image. Also make sure that you have active some selection tool so you could move a selection around image. Hit the left arrow on the keyboard so the selection will move 1 pixel to the left. Then hit DELETE. You can lower this layer's opacity to something like 75%.
Step 5 - Search form
We will make a search form without a send button. Its action will be passed to a search icon that is (visually) inside the input box. Actually it is common to send the form with Enter/Return key but for some reasons it is also good to make a clickable sender. Okay, use Rounded Rectangle Tool to make a white shape like this, align it with guide.
Duplicate this shape and change the color to some light gray (like #9b9b9b) by clicking on the color indicator next to layer's name.
Now you can rasterize both layers. Let's make some naming system here for better clarity. The white layer will be 'base layer' and the gray layer will be 'shadow layer'. Okay, so head to the blending options of base layer and apply these settings:
Now blur a little with Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur our shadow layer, but really, a little, with radius like 0.5 to maximum 1 pixel. You should get the following:
Create a clipping mask layer clipped to a base layer and apply a bit of gray radial gradient.
Now you can add a sample text and a search icon. How to do one? It is a piece of cake. I will show it on separate document. Firstly, create a circle shape, pretty big and duplicate it.
Then go to Edit > Transform > Scale and scale down the copied layer. I've changed it's color for you to see, but it actually doesn't matter. After transformation rasterize both layers.
CTRL+Click on the thumbnail of copied layer (red one), select the base layer in layer's window and hit DELETE on keyboard. Then delete/hide copied layer and you will see a circle like this one.
Draw rectangular shape (could be rounded) somewhere under the circle. Then hit V to select the move tool.
Now select both layers in layer's window (use CTRL or SHIFT) and while you have move tool active, click this icon so the shapes will center theirs middle points.
