How do i make a glass layer?


Recommended Posts

How do i make a glass layer of a picture, but i can still see the original pic.

It'd be cool if the glass was shiny as if light was reflecting on it.

And how would I engrave writing on the surface of the glass so it actuallly looks like it is engraved and the writing looks like stone,

Please help me out on this one guys :<

Here is a sig where i tried to make a red glass layer, bu failed

Engraved glass where the writting looks like stone?

I sort of don't get that. I do glass engravings. it doesn't look like stone, it looks more like white powder.

If that is the effect that you are going for then.

Create a new layer.

Select the "A" (text tool), and you will notice up toward the top where you can pic your font, over to the right you will notice a drop down box that says "solid color"... You want to select "percent 70"

Now, using a white color, type in the text that you want to use.

Next you want to use the Blur effects Gaussian.

I tried about 5 px, on mine with an arial text at 26, but, you will need to play around with the Gaussian numbers to suite you best.

Next, you will want to decrease the layer's opacity a little bit so that you can sort of see a little bit through it...

That's the basis of etching.

I am not sure how to do the glass effect yet, maybe someone else can help you with that.

When in doubt, Try it out.

Ok,

Check out my sig now.

What I have done here was to add a new layer.

Created a white stripe and used blurring.

This gave the "shine" a sort of a round look.

You can add transparency to give it a cleaner more realistic look.

Take a look in the tutorial section and check out the "glass buttons" tutorial. It gives a different way of achieving the effect.

No, ash i wanted to make the a red layer, for say, across the whole image, so all the blue and the gun will be covered, but still transparent.

And thank you sage, i will try that soon :P
