In this beautiful tutorial, i am going to show you how to create Imaginary Photo Manipulation Tutorial Using Adobe Photoshop. we will learn how to manipulate few photos into a scene where an princes imagine some beauty of nature. We’ll use some relatively simple techniques to give these images a semi-realistic, stylized feel. Let’s get started!
Abstract Glow Brush:
Open a new canvas in Photoshop with Width=2631,Height=1500px.Make sure Color Mode is set to RGB Color, if the purpose is for poster designing then set the mode to CMYK.
step 3: 1)
Import the Princess image onto the canvas and place it on the right corner.
2) Color correct the Princess layer using the curves(Image>Adjustments>Curves),set the curves as shown.
step 4: 1)
In our princess layer the Castle is not complete,so cut a part of another image using the Pen Tool to complete the castle.
3)With the Soft Round Brush(B) selected erase the part of the layer which is overlapping the Princess layer.
4)Using the curves color correct the ‘castle tower’ and make sure it blends with the princess layer.
Now import the city image onto the canvas and place it under the princess layer.
step 6: 1)
Import a tower image into photoshop and remove the background using the Magic Wand Tool (W).
2)Now place the image above the ‘city’ layer.Since the tower is portrayed as a far object the edges should not be sharp so let’s blur the edges.Select the mask of the layer by clicking on the thumbnail of the ‘tower’ holding ‘Ctrl’, then inverse the mask holding Ctrl+Shift+I.Now set the feather of the to 1px,and featherout the edges.
step 7: 1)
Now import another tower image onto the canvas and place it on the left corner to portray a very far away object.
Then using the Exposure(Image>Adjustments>Exposure) set the Offset=+0.0755,Gamma Correction=1.26.
3)Now duplicate the ‘tower3′ and increase the Brightness=57(Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast).
2)Now color correct the hills layer using the curves.
As we discussed in the step7 add Gaussian Blur of Radius=2.2px.
Increase the Exposure levels to Exposure=+0.24 , Offset=+0.0755 , Gamma Correction=1.24.
Make a new layer above all the layers and add some clouds using the clouds brush with the white color selected.
Cutting the plants from their background is tricky using the Magic Wand Tool,so let’s use another advanced method of cutting the image.
1)After importing the plant image select the Blue layer from the Channels Pallet.
2)Then open Channels from Image>Calculations and select Blue from the Channel drop down list.
3)Now by using the Levels(Image>Adjustments>Levels) and set the levels so that the plant turns black and BG turns white.
4)Load the plant mask from Select>Load selection.In Load Selection select Alpha1 from the drop down list of Channel.
Import a birds layer and add Gaussian Blur of Radius=1.1px.
Now import the ‘Fairy’ onto the canvas and place it in such a way that the Fairy is giving something to the princess.
Using the Clouds Brush paint some clouds on the Fairy as if she is sitting on the clouds.
Having the Fairy layer selected change it’s Brightness/Contrast to Brightness=38,Contrast=17.
3)Now add Diffuse Glow with Glow Amount=11,Clear Amount=20.
3)Again using the glow brushes add more glow as shown.
Using the Type Tool(T) type a title(Princess Diaries),and place the text layer under the ‘Plant’ layer.
