Make skin look perfect in one-click with these AI-powered Photoshop actions.
I also photographed these pipes, cut them out, rotate them 45°, then placed them on the bottom left corner of the image.
Here’s a hot water tank that I photographed to be used in the project.
I placed it on the landscape near some rocks then I deleted the area around the rock.
Finally, I cut out some of these copper pipes to put on the bottom right side of the image.
Create a new layer on top of the other layers. Use the Rectangular Marquee tool to create borders like shown in the image below.:
Now we are going to add some shadows. Realistic shadows are important because they show the light source; and there’s always a light source! So without shadows in the project, it won’t look real. Add shadows one by one. Start with the first model and duplicate it into a group. Then go to Layer > Merge Layer Set.
Create a selection of the merged layer by holding down the Ctrl button and clicking on the layer thumbnail. You’ll now have a selection of the model. Fill the selected area with a blue color shown below.
Use the Distort tool (Edit > Transform > Distort) to transform the shadow.
Here’s how the shadow should be transformed.
Now reposition the layer with the shadow under the model. Then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Apply a slight blur of around 6 pixels then reduce the opacity of the layer.
Repeat this to create a shadow for the tank.
Now we will colorize the pipes and tubes. Start by making selections of the tube that you’d like to change the color for. Use the Hue/Saturation tool (Ctrl+U or Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation) to colorize the tubes. Make sure that the colorize option in the Hue/Saturation tool is checked.
For the digital display, I changed it from red to green by changing the hue without the colorize option checked.
Here’s the settings I used for the oxygen meter.
For the explosive tank, I used these settings to turn it from red to teal.
I also used these settings to change the color of the model.
Next, I applied a Shadows/Highlights tool (Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights) on all three of the models so that they blend in with the landscape.
