Design a Marvelous Background for your Image
Under Photo Effect, Photoshop Tutorial
When you would like to improve your picture overall effect, the first thing to do is to improve the background. Here will show you some skills to apply the mixture effect (such as smoking and shining effects) into the photo.
In this tutorial we’ll put together a poster where there is a main photograph and a lot of text using the old-collage feel. This tutorial is not so much about technique as it is about layout and composition. In this case it would have been difficult to make the poster work just by using the photo as a background, I had all of three hours to do the entire job (charity work!), and still wanted it to look nice.
The aim of this tutorial is to create a manipulation photo, with a guy standing above the clouds in the sky watching and considering about an optical illusion. To realize this effect, you need to create a surreal sky scene, blend light effects and create realistic looking lens flare. Good luck and have a try!
