Photoshop Elements – adding rays of light



Springtime Woodland  Adding rays/beams of light

Although I like the original image taken in a local woods, I felt it lacked something. So in this video we first look at adding beams of light or sun rays to the image, before enhancing the colours and tones.

Some of the tools used include:-

  • Adjustments layer
  • Gradients
  • Masking
  • Blend modes

Elements 11 but easy to follow in all versions of Photoshop
