In this free Adobe Photoshop Tutorial, you will simply be acquainted with valuable tips on how to attain this effect in just a few minutes using layer styles.
Here are the steps:
Step 1 – Choose the image you will use and open it up in Photoshop. We will be using CS6, but any version would just be acceptable. So, let’s get the ball rolling.
Step 2 – Draw a shape with “Rounded Rectangle Tool” from the left menu and turn off the stroke from the top menu. Make sure that the shape is white and the blending mode has been switched to soft light. Your shape should be now blended into the background image, but still faintly visible.
Step 3 – Navigate Layer-> Layer style and let’s begin to do a little twist with the lighter effects.
- First, we need to “Bevel” and “Emboss” with 250px Size, 16px Soften, 30 Degrees Angle/Altitude, Global light, 75% Opacity on Soft Light Highlight Mode (white) and 10% Opacity on Shadow Mode (black).
- Then we need 25% Opacity on white Inner Glow with 15px size. The Color overlay should be white with 10% Opacity.
- And finally, the “Drop Shadow” should have 50% Opacity, 3px Distance, 10% Spread and 9px size and the same lighting effects and the Bevel and Emboss.
