Glowing Lights Photoshop Tutorial

Watch and Learn Photoshop has released another excellent tutorial. This time the tutorial shows how you can make a light bulb look like it’s illuminated. An effect that is quite common in concept stock photography. I am sure everyone has seen pictures of business men holding a lit light bulb. This tutorial explains how you can achieve this effect.


In today’s tutorial, trainer Geoff Riggs will teach you how to take an image of a light bulb that’s turned off and add a glow to it to make it look like it’s illuminated.
