Beyond Basic Photoshop: Using Lighting Effects
Written by Bill Hankins
Using Lighting Effects
- Image must be in RGB mode even if you have a black and white picture. Perform all the basic tonal adjustments.
- Duplicate the Background layer.
- Apply lighting effects to match your light source. Do this by going to Filter > Render > Lighting Effects.
- Play with the style and angle until you get the effect you want.
- Set background copy to Overlay and set opacity to 75 percent.
