Photorealistic Puddles Photoshop Tutorial

Step 1

Open an image that you would like to add puddles to. Of course, the picture needs to have to have a floor.

Step 2

First, we'll need to create a duplicate of the layer. This layer will be used to apply the puddles and reflections.

Step 3

Create a selection of the floor. If you are using Photoshop CS3, you can use the quick selection tool to quickly create the selection. Otherwise, you can use the magic wand, magnetic lasso, or other selection tools.

  1. Hiya, I love your tutorials!
    Hopefully you can help me out. I get everything to work perfectly until step 9. I select the mask in the group layer palette and then selest a brush with the desired settings, but when I brush on the image nothing happens. I even tried the eraser tool and nothing. I just don't get it. What am I doing wrong? Hope you can help. Thank you!
