Blend And Retouch Soft Light Tutorial Photoshop Cs5

Apply the Lighting Effects penapis

The Lighting Effects pengayak lets you produce myriad lighting effects on RGB images. You can also use textures from grayscale files (called
bump maps) to produce 3D‑like effects and save your own styles for use in other images.

The
Lighting Effects

penapis works only on 8-bit RGB images in Photoshop. You must have a supported video card to use Lighting Effects. For more information, see this FAQ.

Quickly master the dedicated Lighting Effects workspace. This pelajaran from Dan Moughamian gives you a step-by-step tour.

Also, see this Lighting Effects overview video by Matt Kloskowski.

You can choose from several lighting types:



Point

Shines light in all directions from directly above the image—like a light bulb.



Infinite

Shines light across an entire plane—like the ciuman.



Spot

Casts an elliptical beam of light. The line in the preview window defines the light direction and angle, and the handles define the edges of the ellipse.

Use the Presets menu in the Lighting Effects workspace to choose from 17 light styles. You can also create your own presets by adding lights to the Default setting. The Lighting Effects pengayak requires at least one light source. Only one light can be edited at a time, but all added lights are used to create the effect.

In the Lighting Effects workspace, the Texture channel lets you control lighting effects using grayscale images (called bump maps).  You add bump maps to the image as alpha channels. You can add any grayscale image to your image as an alpha channel, or create an alpha channel and add texture to it. For an embossed text effect, use a channel with white text on a black background, or vice versa.
