How to Create an Outdoor Fantasy Manipulation in Photoshop

Step 5 - Working with the scenery

Then find a background. I like to mix different images to create a background, in this case the picture I used as a "base" was this one.


Step 6 - The power of the Gradient Tool

Add a new layer and make a gradient in that layer with green and white. And the choose opacity as 80% also fill 80%.


Step 7 - A touch of Gaussian Blur

Add another layer with a waterfall and trees in screen mode and add Gaussian blur to get this result. In this image I used more Gaussian so you can see the difference, but you can use less.


Step 8 - Adjusting of lighting

Add a new green layer and put it in screen mode with 50% of opacity to make the background brighter.


Step 9 - The textures

Now I'm going to show you how to add some moss to the stones using a texture in soft light with 80% of opacity.

  1. The link that goes to the "tree's" stock takes you to the main profile page of elenaDudina's deviantart account and I can't find the specific file you used in this tutorial. Could you possibly have a look and provide an up to date link. I'd really like to try this tutorial but I can't until I have all the stock or find an appropriate alternative :3
