Make extreme light

Recommended Posts

Scroll down to see the result :)

This is the picture we want to edit:

Copy the background layer:

48617l2.png

And maximize its contrast using Brightness/Contrast:

46112l3.jpg

Then select the whole black area with the magic wand and remove it: *

Run a gaussian blur:

Copy the blurred layer and run zoom blur:

17843l7.jpg

18146l8.jpg

You can now change the transparency for a better result:

At the point marked with * you can also use the original image instead of white:

Very nice result... so simple and yet so effective! Perhaps enter your croissant into the "inner light" comp?

*sigh* one image 5150pixels high. What part of Tutorial Guidelines 1a "less than 800 pixels at their largest dimension" don't you understand?

<Image removed.>

Now you have the option of reposting this tut with much smaller images, or I can lock it.

Much better! Thanks for sorting out the images.

Nice effect - reminds me of the Alien egg (you know the one in the promo pics with the crack & the green light spilling out?).
