Adding shine

Recommended Posts

I have a photo of a yellow car that I want to use but the hood is black. I used the ink dropper on the color pallet and then painted over the hood, but it's dull. The color is right but you can tell that it's not natural. Does anyone know of a way that I can add a "shine" to it to make it look more natural? By the way, if there is a tutorial for this, I can't find it. I did search. :)

Add a new layer and use the line/curve tool to put white lines where you want the shine to be, then use gaussian blur to blend it. Adjust the layer opacity (in layer properties) if needed
