Do you think that only wizards can create magic? With AKVIS NatureArt anyone can be a magician. It doesn't take long to learn how to change the mood of a photo by applying one's imagination and become a master of fire, thunder, and lightning. You could even create your own little tempest in a teapot.
Start processing the selected area by pressing and accept the result by pressing . The plug-in's window closes, and in the graphics editor is a glass filled with rain:
The processed image will look like this:
Adjust the settings to make the lightning look realistic. After processing and applying the effect to the glass, a small but terrible storm rages:
There are two layers - the original photograph and the photograph with the effects. To get rid of the shadow which appeared with the rain, you need to add a layer mask to the top layer, using the command Layer -> Layer Mask -> Hide All. This opaque mask will obscure the top image. Use a white brush on the mask to reveal the glass. Use a translucent white color along the edge of the glass to create a smooth transition.
Crop the image using the tool and use a soft brush to gently remove the background (or use the AKVIS SmartMask plug-in).
Copy the result to the glass:
and adjust the collage by changing the position and size of the object (Edit -> Free Transform), and adjust brightness (for example, through auto correction Image -> Ajustments -> Auto Levels).
To obscure the boat within the torrents of rain, use Blend If in the Blending Options menu by selecting Layer -> Layer Style -> Blending Options. To make white raindrops visible (light colors from the bottom layer) move the slider for the Underlying Layer slightly to the left. Separating the sliders ensures a smooth transition between visible and hidden pixels.
