Create this Amazing Fashion Photo Manipulation with Abstract Smoke and Light Effects

So this was an alternative way for some cutting out, usually people use Channels to do this. But isn't this fun to learn something different?

Step 5

Let's don't get so excited, as this is only the first stage of the extraction, now we're going to need to blend this model with a desired background. So create a new layer below the "model", grab Paint Bucket (G) and fill it with black color. As you see there are still some white edges. The cut out never works perfectly, so you either have to blend it properly or just do some more accurate extraction.

Step 6

Now let's go to Layers Palette, right-click on the "model" layer mask and select Apply Layer Mask. Next hold Ctrl and left-click on the "model" layer thumbnail, this should bring up the selection.

  1. Can't download the "PSD Light Effects.zip | 22.16 MB (Download from Website)" as it just says "404 Page not found"

    :(

  2. Bonjour W.P.
    C'est vraiment très joli et je vous félicite !
    J'essaye de traduire et je le fais, encore merci et si je me trompe, je peux regarder votre .psd, c'est gentil à vous !

  3. Step 7

    Select the “model” layer and hit Ctrl+Alt+R (Refine Edge).

    Output will create another layer with the settings below applied, so you can just basically delete or just turn off the previous layer. It’s up to you.

    Step 9

    Grab Brush Tool (B), set it all the way to 100%, but decrease the Spacing to 1% and check the Smoothing option. Again use black color for painting and go to Layer Mask of the “model” layer. Model layer???????????????????????????

    In Step 7 you say delete previous layer (layer "model") because we have another layer ("model copy").

    Step 10

    You should achieve similar results to mine if you painted accurately. Now pay attention to the red line surrounding the model. It’s indicating how we’re going to shade her to make her body and clothes blend with the background better. So go to Layers Palette, create new layer above “model” and hit Ctrl+Alt+G, this will create a Clipping Mask (and it should look like you see in the preview below). Above "model" layer? Again???????????

    Dude, WTF?????????

  4. This really is a awesome tutorial, im gonna follow it step by step this afternoon. Looking forward to see similair results

  5. Wojciech Pijecki (your name, yes?)

    Thank you so much, a truly great work, and in my opinion just enough info to be able to do it yourself if you wanted to. I especially liked the chiffon-"trick" and the attention to detail in the little "planets" at the end.

    Now for agnes b and photogabe above:

    I really can't believe how inpolite you are being. From what I can see he only skips the most basic stuff. If you look at the first image (end result) you should be able to see that this tutorial will require some beforehand knowledge. To be fair, you are both somewhat constructive in your critisism, but there is really no excuse for that tone of voice.

    1. yes... it did... there is a next page button which i think you didn't see lol

  6. uaua auauauauauusdhat ushdhauusgdhahdgiasdga gidai dgaid is like that the instruction.. your mind and our mind are different, you should be more thourough and use more commond words than intelectual ones, basic stuff in public communication are crutial.. like kindergarden languages... is better to detailed that too confusing..
