How To Create a Similar Image?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well...

 

I want to create a couple of different images where the background image is covered with a semi transparent coloured overlay...

 

Please look at the attached image to see what I mean...

 

Appreciate your help...

Regards

Greg

And what is the question? How to do this?

  1. Put your image in/as the background layer.
  2. Make a new (initial transparent) layer above this.
  3. Choose primary color (blue) and fill the new layer with the paintbucket. (If you choose for the blue direct a value for Opacity-Alpha, step 4 is unneccessary)
  4. Change for this layer in the layer options the value for opacity.

Another way:

 

Use a plugin like Color Balance+, ColorTint (EdHarveys Effects), Manual color... or similar to change the initial background image without additional layers.

Another method, with a few more controls, is my Black and White+ plugin with the Primary Color set to blue, and the Use Primary and Secondary Color option enabled.

 

That assumes you want an image that's just shades of blue and white instead of a color image filtered through blue. They look similar, but the original pictures seem to be the latter. I like the look of the purely blue-and-white image better, but that's just my opinion. Iron67 suggested some methods to produce the filtered version. You might also want to try different Blend modes for the blue filter-layer, such as Multiply.
