Shiny and glossy

Recommended Posts

Hi @Magda and welcome to the forum!


You can also make a new transparent layer above your image and set the blending mode to 'Color Dodge'.


Select the Brush tool and set the hardness to 0%.  In the Palette, select a color between white and gray; the lighter the color, the more 'shine'.


On transparent layer use the brush tool (with a selected brush width) on spots that you want to shine.


In this example,  I used this technique to highlight all the ridges and make them shiny.




Hope this helps!  :)
