Photoshop Tutorial: Space Scene : Blending Nebula Clouds for Photoshop Space Scene

Uploaded by expertvillage on 23.08.2008

Now what we want to do is we want to blend our clouds together just a little bit, to
kind of make them more similar than two different looking clouds. So, what we're going to do
is we're going to come here, and we're going to readjust this layer setting. And all we've
got to do is we've got to double-click here. And as you can see, all of our layer settings
are still set, so we don't have to back up through our history to change what we've done
here. What I want to do is I want to change this blend mode. I want to take this blend
mode, and change it to color, and that way it's going to blend over the top of the white
set, so now this looks more like one cloud. We'll go ahead, and hit okay. This looks more
like one cloud, all blended in one section. It's actually given this a more; it's just
given it a better look in my opinion. Now, you can play around with these settings, and
choose what you want to. I mean, there's plenty of ways you can do this. You can do luminosity,
which is not really going to do much for you, saturation and hue, which aren't going to
do really a whole lot for you. So, I like color; I like just the way this is. This is
going to adjust this just where I want it to, and give it enough spacing to where I
want it to be. So what I should do here is I should just go ahead, and let’s see; let's
focus on an area of this cloud that looks really good. Let's focus on something like
here. What I want to do is I want to free transform this. Let's go into edit, and into
free transform, and what this should do, what this hasn't done is bring up a box, but that's
all right. You know what, we'll leave it right here, and what we're going to do is we're
going to pick this up in the next part.
