Picture gloss


Recommended Posts

Yes. On a new layer, draw your gloss in white, then set the layer opacity to something between 50 and 150.

 

The key to making something look glossy is to understand how lighting works so you can make a convincing shine. If you don't have time for that and the object is relatively simple, just make the top 1/3 glossy.

There are various shortcuts/simplifications that can be used depending on the nature of the image. If you could, post a sample of the image you are working on. If not, a description of the background and of the object you wish to make glossy would be helpful
