Step 24

Let’s add some bushes in the bottom of the image to do that, place the image of the bush. Then go to filter – blur – Gaussian blur. Use 5 of radius.

Step 25

Duplicate the layer (Ctrl + J) to create new bushes. You can change the size using the transform tool (crtl + T) Add all these 3 layers to a group. To do this Select all 3 layer press right click and use the option “group from layers”. Now create a new adjustment layer “hue/Saturation” and reduce the saturation to -70. Apply a clipping mask to the group of layer to affect only the bushes. You also can reduce the lighting to -25.

Repeat the same process with the tree branches add them to the image, and add 5px of Gaussian blur to them.

  1. Looks a decent instructional exercise, tragically two stages (stepson and 12) have pictures missing so we can’t perceive what you did to get any impacts. Additionally, a portion of the stock is never again accessible, yet we can work around that.

  2. Looks a nice tutorial, sadly two steps (steps11 & 12) have pictures missing so we can’t see what you did to get any effects. Also, some of the stock is no longer available, but we can work around that.
